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!

Love it!

This is one of my favorite podcasts about things that were popular when I was young! It's funny and I like the hosts, I often find myself saying the same things they say at the same time. I like when they argue and show me a different perspective too. You keep casting and I'll keep listening!
