Go on a Gen X pop culture nostalgia trip in the Way Back Machine with Derek, Dan, and Anthony! The dynamic trio has another calm, rational discussion, this time about the wonders and highlights of the TV, movies, games, and other things that helped define the youth of our generation.
They start off with a potentially controversial theory: Gen X suffered to make geek culture mainstream. You’re welcome, kids of today, because we made nerdiness cool so you wouldn’t have to get beaten up for it!
Then, the guys launch into an insightful retrospective that encompasses grunge, the shaming of males who watched Friends, the disturbing conspiracy behind the Smurfs, and much more!
By the way, we still haven’t overcome our dependency on uncouth vocabulary. So don’t let Santa know you’re listening.
