250. What it was like living in the 1900’s :)

Powered by RedCircle

Today’s episode is a fun departure from our recent more serious topics. Join me and Jesse as we take a lighthearted stroll down memory lane, exploring the quirks and charms of growing up in the 1900’s. Okay, so we were born in 1980 and 1981 to be exact, but it was still the 1900’s and so much has changed since then!

Born before the millennium? Get ready for a nostalgia-packed ride! The inspiration for today’s episode comes from a meme about being from the 1900’s that sparked a flood of childhood memories in our Instagram community. Join us as we reminisce about record players, cassette tapes, and the evolution of technology. From bag phones to the original Netflix to the joys of free AOL discs, we’ve got it all covered. If you remember playing Oregon Trail or had a station wagon with a seat that faced backwards or had a house with wood paneling, hopefully this episode will remind you of the “good ‘ole days”! 🙂
