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.
Video arcades did not suddenly spring up overnight. They started small, with a machine or two scattered here and there in pizza parlors, convenience stores, and gas stations. They grew into the full arcades and ultimately moved on to create places like Chuck E.Cheese’s and ShowBiz Pizza. In this episode, we talk about our experiences growing up and seeing this happen firsthand and how they are still evolving and around today!
