MY NEW FAVORITE PODCAST!!! 10 STARS!!!

I stumbled across this podcast after someone had posted a link to their Gremlins episode on a Special Effects page I follow on Facebook. I thought it was a fun show and decided to check out some more of their episodes. At first I only downloaded the ones with the topics that interested me most, but then ended up listening to all of them in order from the start. I work in Visual Effects, and it is so great to hear these fellow artists of the same super young age group as me discuss and analyze all of this pop culture phenomena from our childhood onward.

I want to thank Becky, Seth and Chris for keeping me awake and laughing on my monthlong road trip across New Zealand. You three are life savers! I love how they don’t always agree with each other, and sometimes have completely polar opposite opinions. (Buffy was a fun example, sorry Chris!!! Lol) The playful teasing from these three good friends reminds me a lot of sitting around talking crap with my friends about a lot of the same stuff.

I’d like to suggest episodes on Indiana Jones and Back To The Future!!!

I look forward to more episodes and more laughs. Keep it up!

Best. Podcast. Ever.

If you’re looking for a podcast full of pop culture, humor, and incredible nostalgia, then look no further!! I listen to When We Were Young every day on the way to work. Every episode has its own charm and the hosts are full of personality and charisma. They each bring their own style, sense of humor, and pop culture knowledge to the table each episode. Thank you guys so much for making this show! It truly is always one of the highlights of my day!!

A 'must listen' for the nostalgia junkies!

I could not be happier to have stumbled upon this podcast. I have plowed through probably a dozen episodes the past few months, keeping me wildly entertained while commuting or recently on a long road trip. I’m admittedly a sucker for pop culture nostalgia, but these folks hit the sweet spot with mostly 90s movies and music. The themed episodes are amazing where several similar topics are discussed, compared, and looked at to see how well they have (or have not) aged with time.

The hosts bring a critical view, personal stories, and non-stop humor to the table. I related over my love of several seminal CDs from my youth (Alanis, No Doubt, etc), fondly re-watched classic movies like League of their Own and Jurassic Park with a new perspective, and again laughed a lot along the way. Their take of the now cringe-worthy movie Ladybugs nearly had me peeing my pants, while their track-by-track review of Now That’s What I Call Music! had me reliving all the awkwardness of junior high. And I pretty much lost it when the Pure Moods completion CD was covered…apparently I was not the only person to lose my virginity to that mood-setting ‘masterpiece’, lol. That poor, poor girl.

Becky runs the show, bringing sharp analysis, reflection, and wit. Meanwhile, Chris has impeccable taste, is hilarious, and I could just tell is sexy as could be. Seth is OK too.

This podcast is a must listen, and I look forward to more episodes to come!
