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.

Infinity War, Cobra Kai, & Zoom H1n

WARNING! We hold a spoiler-rich discussion of Infinity War in this episode, so when you hear us give you the heads-up, skip ahead from 12 min 30 sec to 20 min 53 sec to skip that part of the conversation. If you do skip this part, don’t forget to come back and listen to it after you’ve seen the film!

We have to talk about Infinity War of course, but also in this episode; George talks about Cobra Kai, Jon give his opinion of the new season of WestWorld (which George does not agree with) and Mo talks about two old school strategy board games that are given a modern update. Plus our usual assortment of gadgets, media and games!
