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.

POOP CULTURE: "Foul-ups, bleeps and ... wait, why are we broadcasting these?"  Bob and Tim record a pop culture discussion every week.  But what makes it to air is actually a truncated version of their actual interaction.  So if you've ever found yourself wondering what doesn't make it online (mis-spoken moments, unrelated ramblings, tenuous tensions between hosts) here's the proper reel to gag on.

See in the intro that first introduced Tim to the concept of outtakes with this clip from TV'S BLOOPER'S AND PRACTICAL JOKES.

Then watch what his 10 year-old self considered the hipper alternative with Steve Lawrence and Don Rickles on FOUL-UPS, BLEEPS AND BLUNDERS.

Take a break with some sponsored words in this vintage ad for the KENNER TWIN POD CLOUD CARD.

And, finally, lull yourself to sleep with multiple renditions of a real American lullaby from the original animated series GI JOE: A REAL AMERICAN HERO.
