Listening to them talk about how MySpcae and MTV played a large role during the presidential and candidate debates was a slap in the face as to how buckwild 2008 was. Especially with the underlying tone that obviously these platforms were the best way to market such things at the time. Twitter is still going strong and blows up during debates, but the other 2 are obsolete and barely holding on. It's fun listening to things from 11 years ago sometimes

me o honestly the way u word that. who wouldnt want that. but in honest, why is their unearthed series the fan favorite. possibly because it is pure history with no bias. literally exposing what we seek and crave about the past. this is what important, measured and noted by history lovers. the hosts are weak
