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: Remembering Pluto

In 1930, a ninth planet was added to the list of planets in our solar system. Then in 2006, it was removed and reclassified as a “dwarf planet.” For some of the folks who grew up in the 1970s and 1980s, this was sacrilege! Join us for this Backtrack as we have a heated discussion about Pluto and its place in our solar system.

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.”

Looking Back on Looking Forward 2019

GenXGrownup
For this show, we’ve scoured every episode from the past year to find anything we were looking forward to that sort of dropped off the radar and we didn’t talk about it again. What happened? Did we see/do that thing? If yes, was it worth looking forward to?
