Gen X forever!

I love this show, Dave and Jason are podcast and Air Force vets, and it shows they will use the worst language and talk about the best times. Gen X is obviously the greatest generation and if you disagree you are probably a boomer and responsible for almost everything that is wrong with pretty much everything.

So fire up you me Dodge Omni, push play on your new White Snake cassette, And pop the color on your new Levi jean jacket! Dave and Jason are gonna fill your ear holes with greatness

Also I Jason Roskam like to spend my alone time rubbing off to Jean Luke Pickard and his Number one watching each other number two. And if anyone has some extra youth size v-neck shirts one always looking

Five stars !!!! #TheEscapePodRulez

Another Success

I started following Dave and Mr Roskam about 2 years ago, when they had the ATSW Podcast and like that one, they continue to offer a very relatable and nostalgic view of the best time to be a kid. They’re 4 episodes in and going very strong. I think this will be a hit and am looking forward to more flashbacks. The only thing I would critique would be there aren’t as many Dave rants... always entertaining and makes you wonder; who hurt you?
If you’re looking for an escape to simpler time and want to be a part of the best pod community in the galaxy, highly suggest you check out From a Gen X POV and the All Things Star Wars pod.

Another great podcast

From Dave’s special guest appearances on Project VCR, then Dave & Jason together on All Things Star Wars & now your favorite foul mouthed airmen are back with From a Gen-X Point of View. This is the audio version but the show is best viewed live on YouTube. Sit back, have a few drinks ready, let Dave & Jason take you back to the greatest generation!
