So Fun!

This podcast will definitely be a nostalgic treat for anyone who was a kid in the 90’s. The hosts do a great job of keeping the content interesting and entertaining and do not struggle with being over-scripted or scattered like some podcasts. Always look forward to each new episode to see what blast from the past will be represented- be it a tv show, book or film I know I’ll be in for a fun trip back to my childhood. Highly recommend!
