Description

We Don't Wanna Grow Up is a nostalgic podcast about pop culture, toys and fond memories of the 80s, 90s and 00s. We want to take you back to that feeling of strolling down the aisles at Toys R Us, flipping through the J.C. Penney catalog so you can ear-mark everything you want for Christmas, cozying up in front of the television on a Saturday morning with a big bowl of cereal, or waiting hours for a certain song to play on the radio so you can hit record on your tape player and have the song forever. We want to recapture the feeling of the moment your dELiA*s catalog arrived in the mail, looking at the album art in your new CD and sitting on your inflatable furniture. Remembering all of this has been a comfort and has helped us get through the stress and anxiety that has come along with everything happening in the world lately, and we hope it helps you a little bit, too.
