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.
Backtrack: Payphones, Pagers, & Passing Notes
It’s hard to image that there was a time where you couldn’t get in contact with just about anybody, anywhere, anytime. In this week’s episode, we look at how our lives were different growing up as GenX’ers and how the way we communicated affected our lives. How did we survive? We did — pretty well actually.
