Fun, fast paced and very funny - a must for us kids of the 80s & 90s. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!
Juvenalia is a pop culture nostalgia show where Alan Maguire, Sarah Maria Griffin, and Ellen Tannam invite interesting people to tell them about something they were obsessed with when they were young; how they felt about it then and how they feel about it now. We've talked about books, films, tv shows, musicians, computer games; we're interested in it all! It's nice, you'll like it.
Juvenalia is part of the Tall Tales podcast network: Ireland's conversation starters
Discovered this podcast while researching Courtney Love and Hole and absolutely loved that episode - so relatable! Love the premise of revisiting childhood obsessions, especially since most of the topics discussed are very Gen X and chime so well with me
Have listened since some time in 2016 but lazily have never left a review. Particularly love the episodes where the subject matter is really familiar and the ones where I’ve never heard of the subject.
Started with the Pratchett episode and wondered how this podcast wasnt on my radar considering how funny, deep and expansive it is with pop culture. Up there with Wizard & The Bruiser but with a guest rota and robust set of topics n refs
Inviting, intelligent, gas chats that begin from a nostalgic starting point and winds pleasantly through high and low brow topics. One of my favourite podcasts.
A show that makes you want to join in
Juvenalia is just lovely. Listen to it so cool people can keep making cool things. It just feels like listening to some friends have a conversation about something you forgot you loved.
One of the funniest podcast's around. It doesn't matter what the subject matter is on any given week, you know the end result will have you cackling like a maniac. In my case, that's either in work or in my car while people give me weird looks. Every episode is a joy, but the episodes with Father Quigg/Liam Nugent (or Liam 'Nugget' as autocorrect in this textbox was so insistent on) and Alison Spittle are the best in my humble opinion. If you like Adam Buxton, Mike and Tom Eat Snacks, This Feels Terrible, nostalgia, puppies, kittens, cups of tea, nice things and laughing, you'll love this.
A great podcast, with every episode featuring a great deal of tangential and unrelated chat(in the best possible way). Each item brought by a guest is used as a tipping off point for a lovely discussion of all things pop culture and frequently even more. The best podcasts feel like intelligent, well informed chats between mates. That's exactly what you get here. A particular highlight was the discussion of a gender flipped fifth element. Reckon Anna Kendrick'd do good Zorg?
