All Episodes

Backtrack: GenX Music Platforms

About This Episode As a GenX’er I still remember the thrill of buying a new record album, running home and carefully opening the record, putting it on the turntable, then listening to the entire album while looking through the album cover for behind-the-scenes pictures and lyrics. I’m not saying that this is better than CDs […]

Bandersnatch, Lemmings Mobile, & Oculus Go

About This Episode Happy New Year! The people at GenXGrownUp are thinking some (unusually) deep thoughts going into the new year. George wonders, “Is watching a movie on an Oculus Go with other people in the room rude?” Mo wonders, “What can I build to justify owning a 3D printer?” And Jon has the deepest […]

Backtrack: Bulletin Board Systems

About This Episode There was once a time when it took hours to download a file, when you had to find out from friends and magazines the numbers to the best… well.. let’s call them “sites,” and when your home phone (no mobile back then) was the same line that you used to access remote […]

The Rookie, Anki Overdrive, & Just Cause 4

About This Episode This year is almost over and in this, our last podcast of the year, George tells us of a TV series and movie that are worth your time, Jon and Mo discuss Just Cause 4 and how it’s not a bad game, just not a great sequel, and we each give one […]

Backtrack: Celebrity Charity Events

About This Episode Back in the 80’s Bob Geldof, a singer and activist, started Band Aid to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia. Whether it was intentional or not, that started a wave of celebrity activism which raised millions for various causes and created a few number one music hits as well. In this […]

Creed II, 3D Printers, & The Room 4: Old Sins

About This Episode Last time we’re going to mention Ralph Breaks the Internet — promise! This week Mo finds another disappointing game, Jon tells us of a documentary that dissects one of the most famous movie scenes in history, and George finds something cool while cleaning off his desk! All of this and much more […]

Backtrack: Novelty Records

About This Episode I won’t say that Generation X had the silliest novelty songs, but we sure had a ton of them! Such classics as “Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah,” “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer,” and “Monster Mash” were at the top of our hit list when we were kids! In this episode we […]

The Hollow, Dashcams, & Fallout 76

About This Episode We are almost done with talking about “Ralph Breaks the Internet”…. almost. But besides that George tells us why he thinks Room 104 needs another look, Mo has a non-opinion on Fallout 76 and Jon forces himself to talk about something not Wreck it Ralph related by telling us about his early […]

Backtrack: Video Game Arcades

About This Episode They were dark, noisy, and not usually very clean, but we still loved going to video game arcades. In this backtrack we talk about the experience of the arcade: from scrounging for quarters under seat cushions to how we chose which games to play. It’s definitely something that had its day and […]

Halloween, Fix-It Felix Jr., & Call of Cthulhu

  About This Episode You would never believe this but Jon is still talking about Wreck it Ralph 2! When we do get a word in edgewise, George gives us a surprising update on the #NOFILTER interactive game and Mo talks about the new video game based on Call of Cthulhu. We have other non-Wreck […]

Backtrack: GenX Kids’ Books

I didn’t ask for much as a kid but the exception was when the Scholastic Book Fair was coming to my school! They had so many books that it was difficult to choose! Many of us developed our love for reading back then, so join us as we look back at some of the book […]
