    E94 - A ReCurrent Affair: November 2021 Edition

    We're back again covering all the hottest retro news since... *checks notes* July? Well I guess we call it Past Forward for a reason... Much Past, not much Forward. We finally talk about the sad passing of Norm Macdonald, the sad sad Home Sweet Home Alone trailer, the sad sad sad Space Jam: A New Legacy and much more that's not nearly as sad like that awesome Matrix Resurrection trailer!

    E90 - 1990

    E90 - 1990

    Since we covered the year 1980 on our 80th episode, we figured we'd crunch the numbers again and turns out our 90th episode would be a perfect time to tackle 1990. It was Turtle Mania, Edward had Scissorhands, and U couldn’t Touch This in the Disney Afternoon or else it would have been a Problem Child. It’s Just Another Day In Paradise here in 1990!

I look forward to Past Forward

A great podcast overall, it does not go on for too long, you guys keep the conversation on point and cover some great topics. Always enjoy seeing it pop up in my feed and I thoroughly enjoy reminiscing with you guys.

Awesome experiential nostalgia

Most nostalgia podcasts simply review retro games, tv and movies. That's not really my cup of tea.

This podcast is more about the experiences of the hosts. It often revolves around media, but it's more to do with their connection to the subject rather than a simple review.

It's particularly interesting when they go into childhood experiences because it is easy to relate.

The production values could be better, but that typically improves over time with podcasts.

All in all, this is a fantastic nostalgia podcast and highly recommended.

All the FEEEELLLLSSSS

Love this podcast. It makes me laugh out loud, sometimes awkwardly in public when I have my headphones on...and it always takes me back to my childhood. Come on! Nostalgia is the best feeling ever! Dive in and have fun, the chemistry between the hosts are amazing!
