Welcome to the All New Branded in the 80s Podcast, a show that remembers what it was like to be a kid!

Branded Podcast Logo

Back in 2006 when I started the Branded in the 80s project it began as a short-lived podcast.  in 2016, for the 10 anniversary of the site I brought the show back for a short season of 8 all new episodes.  Season 2 just launched at the end of 2017, so join me as I wax nostalgic both on what it was like to be a kid in one of the best decades in recent memory, as well as what it’s like for a kid at heart to enter into midlife.  Click on the cassettes below to be whisked away to the episode pages.
