Backtrack: Going to the Movies

About This Episode The movie-going experience growing up GenX couldn’t be more different than the experience today.

Backtrack: Pizza Arcades

About This Episode Video arcades did not suddenly spring up overnight. They started small, with a machine or two scattered here and there in pizza parlors, convenience stores, and gas stations.

Backtrack: Payphones, Pagers, & Passing Notes

Crackdown 3, Alita: Battle Angel, & Lockly

Backtrack: Retired Advertising Icons

About This Episode Back in the 70s & 80s, nothing sold a product better than a great mascot or spokesperson. Everyone knew Mr. Wipple, Chalie the Tuna, and the Maytag repairman, and they became almost synonymous with the products they represented. We thought that they’d be around forever but times change and many of our […]
