    It's autumn -- the season made for cozy vibes and a spooky aesthetic. In this episode, you're invited to curl up with a hot beverage and enjoy being transported back to the 90s for a conversation on two timeless fall flicks -- Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown. Naseem is joined by her friend Haley (back from Season 1) to discuss their love for these movies, the iconic quotes that still make them laugh today, the adult innuendos we only just caught on to, and finally - the nostalgia that makes these traditions remain so special.

    SHUT UP: Princess Diaries 20th Anniversary Episode

    SHUT UP: Princess Diaries 20th Anniversary Episode

    In this episode we are celebrating the iconic film that was Anne Hathaway's debut: The Princess Diaries. This movie just turned 20 so of course, warrants an immediate episode. Naseem takes us through four categories that must be discussed as she did a recent rewatch:

    1) The Cool Factor (fashion, soundtrack, and Mandy Moore anyone?)

    2) The Characters (the Michael Dilemma; listen to find out)

    3) The Catchy Quips (the one liners we know and love -- plus others we only caught through closed captions)

    4) The Crux (includes an epiphany about the big moral of the film)

    Plus, some trivia to impress y'all as well as some moments in the film that probably wouldn't be as "PC" today. ENJOY





    DM Naseem your thoughts after! Plus, subscribe and review this podcast if you enjoy it to be the first to receive new episodes as they're released. Thanks for sharing Nas-Talgia on your social media :)

    Anita, Darling! An Honest Review of "Cruella" Compared to the Original

    Anita, Darling! An Honest Review of "Cruella" Compared to the Original

    In this episode, Naseem is reviewing the brand new live-action Cruella by Disney. Set entirely as an origin story, we find out about Cruella's past (neé Estella), why she became the villain she is today, and get plenty of nods to both the cartoon and 1996 live action predecessor. Does Emma Stone come close to Glenn Close? Join us for a deep dive. This episode is not spoiler free!



    Episode Debrief: Send Naseem a DM after you listen -- how did you find Nas-Talgia and why do you love it? Which Disney villain do you want to see an origin story for next?

    Sound Bite Series: Oops I Did It Again

    Sound Bite Series: Oops I Did It Again

    It's time for Britney, listeners. In this episode, the Sound Bite Series continues with a look at Britney Spears' second album "Oops I Did It Again." This is her 2 for 2 of diamond certified albums and we're going through her entire rap sheet. Plus, the music videos, the songs that never became singles, the interlude tracks, the hilarious "Dear Diary" final track... and more. In this episode, Naseem is rejoined by special guest Gabriela Gonzalez for a roundtable discussion of Britney's conservatorship and the controversy surrounding the recent documentary and "Free Britney" movement. This might change your perspective on the matter.

    Our biggest takeway was the eerie foreshadowing of the lyrics in so many of her heartbreaking lyrics. Don't miss this.

    Send Naseem a message after to debrief and don't forget to review and subscribe to this podcast!

    Sound Bite Series: *NSYNC's Debut Album

    Sound Bite Series: *NSYNC's Debut Album

    This episode is part of a new series on Nas-Talgia called the Sound Bite Series. We're studying one iconic CD from the 90s/00s and reminiscing on the hit singles - but more importantly the hidden gems. We're kicking it off with *NSYNC's debut album! Of course you know "Tearing Up My Heart" and "I Want You Back" but how about "You Got It" or "I Need Love" ?! Best part is Naseem is live watching some of their music videos while recording so you get the immediate commentary.

    What is your favorite *NSYNC song from this album?

    DM her your requests for future albums to feature on this series!

    A GenZ, A Millennial, & One Undying Love for the 90's

    A GenZ, A Millennial, & One Undying Love for the 90's

    In this episode of Nas-Talgia, Naseem sits down with her new virtual friend, Dina, the creator of a 90's pop culture fandom account (@90sAddict_90210). Get this, Dina is only 19 years old (say what?!).

    In this interview, Naseem picks Dina's brain about how she feels like she was born in the wrong generation and how unique it is to be a GenZ who wishes they lived in the 90's. We're also discussing the rise of social media fan accounts, the friendships and micro communities that emerge out of them, and of course their shared love to Dawson's Creek. This was such a fascinating discussion.



    Bonus talk: favorite rom coms, crushes, and how it might not just be about the nostalgia 00 but just the overall aesthetic of the 90s that did it for her. Enjoy!
