Description

Generation X. If you grew up in the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s, you know just how cool it was to be a kid back then. We had the greatest music, movies, games, technology, and pop culture of any generation, and though we've grown older, we have refused to outgrow our love of everything GenX. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Generation X'ers who have refused to grow up!

The Greatest American Hero

The Greatest American Hero

2023-01-1901:03:19

In 1981, a Los Angeles school teacher and a mid-level FBI agent encountered aliens in the desert and were given a super-powered suit. Together, they worked to use the suite to fight crime and corruption, but things could’ve gone smoother if only they hadn’t lost the instruction manual. In this backtrack, we remember the adventures of Bill and Ralph as seen in the GenX television series, The Greatest American Hero!

Gallagher

Gallagher

2023-01-0555:20

Leo Anthony Gallagher, Jr. was one of the most popular and recognizable comics of the 1980s. He was known for his keen observational humor, but even more so for his own special brand of prop comedy that featured an over-sized sledgehammer that sent bits of watermelon flying into audiences around the world. In this episode, we remember the life and career of legendary GenX-era comedian, Gallagher!

REWIND: Going to the Movies

REWIND: Going to the Movies

2022-11-1701:00:47

The movie-going experience growing up GenX couldn’t be more different than the experience today. Waiting on long lines for hours, racing to get the good seats, only being able to get a soda, popcorn, and candy, and mostly relying on word of mouth and a few reviews to help you select what to see were the norm. In this Backtrack, we have a ton of fun talking about that experience, how the movies themselves have changed, and how they compare to today!

GenXGrownUp sat down with legendary Atari developer, Howard Scott Warshaw, to discuss his book, Once Upon Atari, his history at Atari, details on the forthcoming Yars’ Revenge Sequel, and how he made the migration from engineer to therapist. See the Video Interview » youtu.be/fYrs7sLJxP8 ONCE UPON ATARI is an intimate view into the dramatic rise and fall of the early video game industry, and how it shaped the life of one of its key players. This book offers eye-opening details and insights, delivered in a creative style that mirrors the industry it reveals. An innovative work from one of the industry’s original innovators. This is a detailed look behind the scenes of the early days of video games, with particular attention to the causative factors leading up to the video game crash of the early 1980s. It is also the journey of one industry pioneer, and how his experience creating some of the world’s most noted pieces of interactive entertainment reverberates throughout his life. It is a compelling tale of innocence, hubris, joy, greed, devastation and ultimately redemption, told with a fresh voice and unorthodox style.

In 1982, faith in the Star Trek franchise was waning. The lackluster performance of 1979’s Motion Picture could have marked the end for Kirk, Spock, & company. But just in the nick of time, a second film hit theaters and it was not only good, but so remarkable that it set box office records and re-invigorated the entire franchise. In this episode, we’re celebrating the fortieth anniversary of one of the best sci-fi films of all time, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan!
