Attention 90's kids, it's time to dig out your secret Boy Band memorabilia because we are talking about all things *NSYNC on this week's episode of As If: A 90's Fancast!
We're back with another fun anniversary. It's been 20 years since the movie Matilda hit theaters in August 1996. We're digging in and talking about our favorite parts of the film: Miss Honey's cottage, Lavendar, the sound mixing, and of course libraries. We are also in disagreement over the chocolate cake. Speaking of cake, here is a link to a similar cake from Delish.
We are mere hours away from the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. To fill the gap, we are geeking out over probably our favorite thing from the 1990s. That, obviously, is the Harry Potter series by the queen, J.K. Rowling.
Bust out your slammers because this week we are talking about the fabulous 90's game POG! We're hitting all of the highlight: Playing for keeps, promotional POGs, POG cases, and of course the infamous banning of POGs from schools the world over. J
Be still our 90's hearts. This week on As If: A 90's Fancast, we are remembering the film that made us all fall in love with poetry and Heath Ledger. 10 Things I Hate About You will forever have a special place in our hearts, and we're not shy about telling you why. We may also reminisce a little about our own high school experiences, because why not.
Michelle really really really wants a pet, but unfortunately her landlord has a 'No Pet' Policy. To help sooth her pet-starved heart, we decided to record about the digital pets that plagued our childhood. That's right, we're digging into the magical world of Giga Pets and Tamagotchi!
This is an extra fun episode because you not only get to listen to us be nostalgic about Dear Diary, the toy every 90s girl needed, but you also get to listen to us know nothing about modern toys. That's right, we've hit that point where we know more about things that are twenty years old than we do about something that came to market about a year ago. Yay!
It's the episode that Michelle has been most looking forward to recording! Rainbow Brite may not technically be from the 90's but since we watched it in the 90's, we're saying that it counts. So, pull up a chair and get ready to get colorful!
In the 90's this podcast would come with an accompanying commercial featuring a group of girls aged 6-9 playing with various, girly toys. Gender neutral wasn't really a thing in the 90s so you'll have to pardon us as we totally go crazy geeking out over every 90s girl's favorite toy, Polly Pocket. We also mention a few of our other favorite girl toys, but, I mean, Polly Pocket!!
