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: Walkman & Discman

There's probably not a GenX'er out there who wasn't somehow impacted by the introduction of the Sony Walkman. The ability to carry the music you want to hear and listen to it wherever you go was seen as nothing short of a miracle in technology. In this episode, we talk about the Walkman's history and our personal experiences with this life changing piece of tech.
