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.

Before Magic the Gathering and Pokemon cards, we used to collects cards for no reason other than to have them. We had shoe boxes full of baseball cards and our binders were covered with Wacky Packs and Garbage Pail Kids stickers. In this episode we talk about our experiences with collectable cards growing up and even do a little research into the history!
