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: Video Game Arcades
They were dark, noisy, and not usually very clean, but we still loved going to video game arcades. In this backtrack we talk about the experience of the arcade: from scrounging for quarters under seat cushions to how we chose which games to play. It’s definitely something that had its day and will probably never be back but is still the source of many memories for GenX’ers.
