Revisiting

Revisiting

By 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.
