August 17, 2019

Welcome to your regular walk down the memory lane of nostalgia with Tai and Christina. Mercury Retrograde threw us both for a loop, a bunch of loops actually, but now that we’ve had a bit of time to get everything reset, this week we discuss some of the things steeped in nostalgia that help us get through rough times. We talk about our favorite shows, music, and movies that make us feel better when we’re feeling a bit low. Also on this episode we catch up to our favorite characters on Pose, discuss some fun upcoming reboots, and Tai has a special announcement. 

Dont forget to check us out on twitter at @NostalgiaMixpod for our Pose live tweets, and just ot keep up with our daily nostalgia related conversations.
