Generation X. If you grew up in the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s, you know just how cool it was to be a kid back then. We had the greatest music, movies, games, technology, and pop culture of any generation, and though we've grown older, we have refused to outgrow our love of everything GenX. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Generation X'ers who have refused to grow up!

Set in a galaxy ruled by an evil empire, Princess Leia, who is part of the resistance, has plans for the Empire’s ultimate weapon: the Death Star. She is pursued by the evil Darth Vader. She hides the plans with two droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO, who escape to the planet Tatooine. Leia is captured by Vader. They eventually meet up with Luke Skywalker while they search for Obi-Wan Kenobi, to whom Leia directed them to deliver the plans. They hire Han Solo and Chewbacca to fly them to Alderaan to deliver the plans, but when they get there, the planet has already been destroyed by the Death Star. Their ship gets captured by the Death Star, but they manage to hide and while figuring out their escape, realize that Leia is being held there. They free Leia and during the escape Kenobi allows himself to be killed by Darth Vader. They escape with the plans, rejoin the rebels, and discover a weakness in the Death Star. They attack the Death Star and just before Darth Vader is about to kill Luke, Han Solo shows up and saves him. Luke fires the amazing shot that destroys the Death Star, but Vader escapes.

GenX Playgrounds
A typical day of fun as a GenX kid might mean exposure to dangerous conditions, devious contraptions, and life-threatening physics. And yet somehow, we survived to tell the tale. Of course, we’re just talking here about the average GenX-era playground! They’ve changed dramatically in the last few decades, and in this Backtrack we’re talking all about playgrounds the way we remember them from our youth!

REWIND: Bulletin Board Systems
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 servers. That was the wonderful, frustrating, and amazing world of BBSes. In this episode, we talk about our first time using computers to access a larger world!
