20th Century Popcast is a podcast that tries to understand the present by living in the past. Each week hosts Bob and Tim take a sociological look at the pop culture of the '80s and '90s. Its a ruining of their childhood that hopefully explains how they became adults.
LIST-A-RAMA-A-GO-GO: "Another rattled off hit-list of equal in height fidelity." (1993-1996) Previously on 20th Century Podcast, Bob precision-picked the definitive list of impactive '90s albums. It is now one week later and they are going to do that exact same thing again, only this time it's Tim who is embarking on that middling, mid-life act of fading relevance.
