Description

We're Generation X'ers who spent our childhood immersed in the music, movies, games, and pop culture of the late '70s & '80s. All of that stuff has shaped who we are today as adults. And those nostalgic things are still very much a part of how we live our lives & see the world in the 21st century. Through this show we look at yesterday and today through the eyes of Generation X'ers.

To many kids who grew up in the ’70s and ’80s, the mall was a favorite hangout, an entertainment center, a cafeteria, and even a date night destination! In this episode, our parents have dropped us off at the front entrance where we start reminiscing about the Generation X mall experience.
