    Episode 011 - Toys & Games

    In this episode, Brian wraps up his on location reporting in Fargo, ND with trusty boyfriend sidekick Shaka and his friends Danni and Derek, who compiled an array of 90s era toys and games to play with in person. Join the margarita-fueled fun as we play a thrilling game of “What’s in the Box” (unfortunately, Gwyneth Paltrow’s head was not in it), get all SJW up in this crib about the gendering of toys, rehash the painful consequences of Skip It, learn how to psychologically manipulate parents into getting the Christmas/Birthday presents you actually wanted, and mourn the deaths of all our digital pets. There is also some bonus 90s karaoke singalong of Sixpence None The Richer that cannot be missed. You’re welcome. The 90s Called, and it’s Steve! Steve has a crush on you! Thanks, Electronic Talking Dream Phone from Milton Bradley!

    Episode 010 - Full House

    We're back! Season 2 is starting off with a road trip all the way to Fargo, North Dakota to talk with Full House MegaFan Deb (follow her on Twitter: @debadeedebadah) Everything is on the table in this one: John Stamos's belly button, Uncle Joey's lack of romantic action (except for Mr. Woodchuck), the infamous "Full House Awwwww" moments, and if The Olsen Twins got too big for their britches (figuratively, of course - they be skinny). We also segue into another San Francisco set masterpiece "The Room", Alanis Morissette, and, obviously, the attractiveness of Steve from "Blues Clues." The 90s Called, but it was after 8pm. How Rude!

    Episode 009 - Nicktoons

    Episode 009 - Nicktoons

    Ask your mom if you can eat your bowl of Fruit Loops in the living room, because Nicktoons are on! Brian’s sister Jill is on to reflect on Rugrats, Aaaahh! Real Monsters, Hey Arnold, and all the other Nickelodeon-based toons of the 90s! We put our collective memories together to figure out just how Ren and Stimpy didn’t spark a parental censorship campaign, why cartoon characters don’t gradually age, the sunny and fun trend of dead mothers in children’s entertainment, and which end of Cat Dog was the unlucky one that had to deal with #1 and #2. There’s also some bonus discussion on Snick and how Brian somehow psychologically tortured his older sister with a piece of red foam. The 90s Called, and they want to know if you want to go to The Beets concert with them.

    Episode 008 - Video Games

    Episode 008 - Video Games

    Attach your Game Genie and ask your mom for some Capri Suns, because we're getting into video games! Don't try this at home, kids, but I met a stranger from the internet who turned out to be super cool: His name is Curt Moe, and he's on to reminisce about arcade and console games we enjoyed in the 90s. We tackle the rivalry of Mario vs. Sonic, why Brian could not handle the fatalities in "Mortal Kombat", Curt getting blood lust after a few hours of "Grand Theft Auto", and the pangs of regret when your mom sells your old Nintendo at a garage sale for pennies. The 90s Called, and they don't give a crap about the quarters you put down on the machine. Wait your stupid turn. Audio note: Curt has a booming, manly voice while I am apparently a meek flower who didn't talk directly into the microphone, so be warned of volume discrepancies. Or, am I doing a power play and forcing you to listen closely in order to hear me? You decide. Also my dog decided to run a marathon across the wooden floor of our recording space and drink water. Sorry.

    Episode 007 - Spice Girls

    Episode 007 - Spice Girls

    Strap on your platform boots, try on your union jack dress, and slam your body down and wind it all around because we’re talking Spice Girls! Brian’s college friend and certified Spice Girls superfan Lawrence Stahl traveled all the way from Taiwan to be on the podcast and guide us through all things ginger, sporty, posh, baby, and scary. Say you’ll be there as we defend the Spiceworld movie, debate the girls’ solo careers, and divide on who our favorite member was. Also, is there a need for a save haven and community for straight men who love belting out “2 Become 1” unironically? We think so. Join us, Spice Bros: We understand you. The 90s Called, and they’re wondering what a “Zig-a-zig-ah” really is.

    Episode 006 - Fashion

    Close your caboodle for a sec and listen in as comedians Hessley Rey (tuesdaynightcomedyshow.com) and Sarah McPeck are on to take us through the fashion highs and lows of the 90s. Hear all about how to deplete the ozone layer with Aquanet, the best way to accessorize your bodysuit, professional grade makeup application tips, why eyebrows just didn’t matter, and the dangers of walking in off-brand JNCO jeans. This one goes off the rails just a bit, so there is some bonus content about public urination and Gwyneth Paltrow (trust me, it’s worth it.) The 90s Called, and they want the Zubaz you borrowed back like right now.
