You have to grow older, but you don't have to grow up...
We're GenX'ers who spent our childhood immersed in the music, movies, games, and pop culture of the 70s, 80s, & 90. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Gen X'ers who refuse to grow up. "Escape Room" is our 3-part audio drama celebrating Halloween.

In this Backtrack, we talk about the computer games we loved to play growing up, the machines we played them on, and what made them so special to us!
