20th Century Pop! 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.
BINGE AND PODCAST "Its like High School but with more stakes." (1997) High School can be Hell ... especially if its built on a Hellmouth. And today Bob and Tim are bellying up to The Bronze with author Bonita Guiterrez to relive their youth through the pop-cult goggles of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. But with their conflicting opinions and varied impressions .. it may not be all three that survive the semester.
