Great show

Always fascinating to see what pop culture artifacts have aged like wine , what has aged like milk, and what simply has vanished from the public consciousness.

My Favorite Podcast

Thirty Twenty Ten is hands down my favorite podcast each week. It’s a great mix of walking down memory lane and discovering new things I missed at the time. Diana, Sarah, and Chris are great hosts and have a fun and authentic chemistry. Diana is a walking cinema encyclopedia and a national treasure, Sarah is hilarious and always has thoughtful commentary, and Chris serves up the funniest celebrity impressions I’ve ever heard. Keep up the fantastic work, gang! Sincerely, a proud Patreon sponsor.
