Revisiting

Radio Stakhanov

Revisiting is the only podcast you'll ever need for nostalgia. We're talking pink Motorola Razrs, Windows XP and Smirnoff Ice, all topped off with a Von Dutch cap and spritzed with Glo by J-Lo. 20-somethings Laura Kirk and Laura Gallop have decided to mine their digital diaries – old text messages, Facebook statuses, and emails to Mum - in attempt to relive those halcyon days when life was all about whether you had enough money to buy that Paul's Boutique bag. Each week, the girls also explore a cultural phenomenon from down the generations as they spin the Wheel of Nostalgia. What's it going to land on next? Now CDs? Pizza Express? An analytical re-watch of Clueless? The possibilities are almost literally endless, and almost certainly embarrassing. Find out every week on Revisiting, podcasting's most hilarious trip down memory lane. @revisitingpod @laurakirk12 @lauragallop

It's our final episode, and what better way to sign-off from our long stroll down memory lane, than revisiting our favourite ever episode. It's 2010, we've finished our A Levels, and we're off to party in Zante, Malia, Ayia Napa, or wherever there was cheap booze, loud music, and lots of adolescent nonsense. So grab your personalised t-shirt, forget your dignity, and join us for one last hurrah of Revisiting - dancing on podiums heavily encouraged. We'd like to thank all of our listeners...

Isolation Diaries: Lockdown skin, salicylic acid, and Gladiator

5/22/2020
This week, Laura G is stepping into her new role as our resident skin guru as we discuss how being forced to stay inside has affected our skin.
