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: Lunch Boxes

Sadly, not all of us were able to participate in the joy of owning lunch boxes. Some were not able to show all their friends which TV shows they liked, which cartoons were the coolest, or use that awesome thermos. But at least two of the hosts of GenXGrownUp were part of that lucky group! Come join us as we talk about what made lunch boxes such a status symbol.
