GenXGrownUp

You have to grow older, but you don't have to grow up...

We're Generation X'ers who spent our childhood immersed in the music, movies, games, and pop culture of the 70s, 80s, & 90s, and all that stuff shaped who we are today as adults. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Gen X'ers who refuse to grow up.

Backtrack: Y2K

Y2K really turned out to be a whole lot of nothing when 2000 came around, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about it! Reactions ranged were from “whatever” to “we’re all going to die.” Join us as we talk about what the whole thing was about, some real concerns that most people were not paying attention to, and what actually happened when we rolled over into the new millennium.
