Evergreen Podcasts Partners with GenXGrownUp and Drawn and PaneledCategory:Press

Evergreen Podcasts (Evergreen), a Cleveland, Ohio-based podcast publisher, is proud to announce a partnership with GenXGrownUp. This partnership adds two fun podcasts, GenXGrownUp and Drawn & Paneled, to Evergreen’s growing catalog.

Founded in 2017, GenXGrownUp is a content creation organization dedicated to celebrating the nostalgia of growing up in the 70s, 80s, and early 90s. The content is focused on media, games, tech, toys, comics, and pop culture of yesterday and today through the eyes of Generation X'ers who refuse to grow up.

The show alternates each week between a look at current topics, and the nostalgic highlight show: The Backtrack. In The Backtrack, hosts pick a single nostalgic topic from their youth and dig in deep to explore it. They epitomize the motto, "You have to grow older, but you don't have to grow up."

Drawn & Paneled features Generation X’ers who rekindle their passion for the ink and paper medium of their childhood through the emerging market of indie comics. This podcast offers news, reviews, and interviews you crave each week. Listen in as hosts and guest panelists discuss Marvel, DC, Image, Aftershock, Scout Comics, Dark Horse and many more comic publishers

"When we started GenXGrownUp in 2017, our two key pillars were to produce quality entertainment and always have fun. We found both of those guidelines align perfectly with Evergreen Podcasts. Each show in the Evergreen family is from talented creators passionate about the content they publish. We couldn't find ourselves part of a better company, " says Founder/Owner of GenXGrownUp, Jon Reddick.

"All of us at Evergreen Podcasts could not be more thrilled to be adding the GenXGrownUp and Drawn & Paneled podcasts. Both are provocative pop culture podcasts that merit a long, hearty listen and capture the essence of being a member of Generation X,” adds Evergreen CEO, Michael DeAloia.

Episode List
Both of these shows are available for listening now. GenXGrownUp episodes are available every Thursday and Drawn & Paneled episodes are available every Wednesday on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Play Music, and EvergreenPodcasts.com.
