Welcome to Zeitgeist Café! To all of you of a certain age, this will help you relive the glory days of growing up in the 70s and 80s. It's even better if your growing up happened to have occurred in the Twin Cities of Kitchener and Waterloo, Ontario. To the rest of you, a fun romp through the history of culture from that era.

We try to publish fortnightly. We hope you'll subscribe and enjoy a cuppa and some laughs with us!

Erik and I spend some time teasing out memories from our time on playgrounds in primary school, and the things that went around it all.

Get out your polyhedron dice! We talk about Erik's love for D&D, and my love for wanting to love D&D. :)

This week's show was a little chaotic. Time limits, people interrupting, FaceTime calls coming in, a dubious and questionable Skype connection, and even a few moments where Erik thought he'd lost his entire recording. There's also a slight, faint echo on my audio for reasons unknown--sorry about that. Still and all, we got it done! We're getting our chops, let me tell you.
