Description

Did the movies of your childhood make you the maladjusted and anxious adult you are today? Hosts James Avramenko and JENNICA! seem to think so. Every week they rewatch an old favourite from their past and discuss how it made them the people they are today. Learn about where the movies touched them, what lingering daddy issues remain, and remember the valuable lesson to never kink shame! RBTM is an irreverent exploration of media, nostalgia, and the pop culture that ruined us.
