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.
POP PSYCH - "On being Harry, Richard and some kid going into space.“ (1984-1996) It’s an episode of questionable gestures as Bob and Tim embark down the path of relationships past. Along the way they share stories of how they copped their most romantic gestures from the films of their youth. So hold up that boom box, confess those fated feelings and hope they don’t call it stalking. Or the police.
