All That Glittered
  • Language: eng
  • Episodes: 36
  • Last: 5 Mar 2018
All That Glittered is a nostalgia review show, where what we're reviewing is our own nostalgia for childhood. Hosts are Carolyn and Dan, husband and wife who came of age around the same time in the mid-90s and have been consuming mindless children's media ever since. In each episode we'll return to something that only one of us loved as a kid and discuss it as we remember it, before revisiting it as adults to see how well it holds up. Only one of will be wearing the rose-colored glasses each time, while the other can approach the selection with clear (or perhaps overly-critical) eyes. New episodes every other Monday!
