Backtrack: GenX Future Predictions

10/18/2018
More
When Generation X dreamed about the future, we pictured either a technological paradise with flying cars, helpful robots, no illness and rocket ships or we pictured a wasteland brought on by some human action. Neither came true (luckily in the latter), but we're still a ways off from where we thought we would be by now. In this Backtrack we look at what we thought the future would hold and discuss some of the things we thought we would have and don't, and what we have that we never would...

10/4/2018
More
"Breaker, breaker 1-9, I just eyeballed a bear trap with a bunch of Evel Knievels about 10 miles past the coop. So if you don't want a bear bite back it down." Huh? That was just some CB talk in honor of this week's Backtrack Topic all about Radio Shack! Any GenX'er who was into anything electronic will have a story about visiting a Radio Shack.

Special Edition: Episode Zero

8/17/2018
More
On the date of the one-year anniversary of the launch of our podcast, we offer this special edition release. A few weeks before the first episode you heard, we did a conference call as a proof-of-concept and brainstorming session discussion what the show might and could be. We recorded that and did a test mix as a sort of dry run. Audio quality and editing are sub-par, but if you're a fan of the show, you might get a smile or two listening to the origin of what has become an important part...

Today most of us walk around with hundreds of gigabytes of storage in our pockets and think nothing of it. In the not too distant past, to have a few megabytes of storage was considered a ton!

Special Edition: Billy Mitchell Interview

6/23/2018

All of us at GXG have a love for those classic arcade games we grew up playing in our corner arcades, so it should come as no surprise that we've been closely following the controversy surrounding Billy Mitchell. Mitchell, the first man to ever get a perfect score on Pac-Man, was in the news more than usual recently due to accusations of rules violations in achieving his recorded Donkey Kong high score. His score was removed from Twin Galaxies, the de facto video game high score governing...
