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.

The Space Race

From the mid-1950s the Soviet Union and the United States were engaged in a race to be the first to conquer outer space. When President Kennedy challenged the country in 1962 to go to the moon and come back within the decade, it seemed like an impossible task: something that was science fiction. But the United States met the challenge and succeeded. This week we talk about how the space race affected us growing up Generation X.
