Nolan and Ben are back for the second half of their two part show covering pivitol moments in televison broadcasting history. They picked up right where they left off, starting the show with the Miracle on Ice during the 1980 Olypmics. They also talk about other televised landmarks during the Cold War, popular series finales, and everything in between.


This week Nolan and Ben are bringing a brand new topic to the show! This is part one of a two part episode discussing pivotal moments in television history. Events such as the Apollo 11 Moon landing and how the breakthough musical acts on the Ed Sullivan show gathered the nation around the TV screen. Television also forever changed the political atmosphere with the first televised presidential debate between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon. 


This week Ben and Nolan go back to the Young Nostalgia roots by talking about pop culture. This time they cover the 1980s. Music was huge during this time period and brought forth the emergence of new genres as well as the return of past styles. Music videos became popular and changed the audience and artist relationship forever. To round out the episode, the guys talk breifly about a few blockbuster movies from this decade that have survived in the mainstream to this day. 


This week Young Nostalgia brings a combination of emerging technology and once common place products. Nolan discusses the prominence of artificial intelligence and autonomous robotics before moving on to biotechnology and sustainability. In the second half of the show, Ben brings up several once prevelant products and ideas that have since fallen to the wayside in our modern world. Skate keys, church keys, and milk chutes are just a few of the topics covered.


As promised, Young Nostalgia has returned! Nolan and Ben needed some time to get their lives back together after graduating college but they are now back with an all new "This Month in History." Starting a new trend in historical shows, Young Nostalgia is now focusing on quality of topics over quantity. Rather than hitting the usual large amount of events, Nolan and Ben pick out several key moments in history and expand on their build up and effects. This week's edition includes the Continental Congress, Constitiutional Conventions, entrance of atomic warfare, the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, and the fall of the Berlin Wall.
