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.
Christmas season is upon us and toy shopping in high gear. And while most of that shopping these days is done online, we’re devoting this episode to remembering the nearly-extinct brick and mortar toy stores we enjoyed growing up!
