Pod Meet World Podcast Review

Nostalgia is a funny thing. It can take you back to who you were at the moment in time. But there is also an element of understanding how the passage of time can change your perspective.

The new podcast Pod Meets World stars three actors from the 1990’s sitcom Boy Meets World. In the same vein as Zack to the Future, Danielle Fishel (Topanga), Rider Strong (Shawn), and Will Friedle (Eric) talk about their memories of making the show, watching it through adult eyes, and interviewing their costars.

This podcast is so much fun to listen to. I remember watching it as a kid and loving the program. Growing up with these characters, the experiences of my teenage years was perfectly reflected through Corey’s eyes. It was the perfect mixture of reminiscing and having the understanding of now being an adult.

What made me feel quite old was the episode with William Russ, who played the father. At the time of the show, Russ was the same age that Strong is now. Where have the last thirty years gone?

Do I recommend it? Yes.

New episodes of Pod Meet World are released every Monday and Thursday.

Girl Meets World Review

My young adulthood is about to come back in a big way.

Girl Meets World,  the sequel to Boy Meets World had it’s world premiere on June 27th.

The pilot starts 14 years after the first series ended. Corey (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) are now living in New York City with their two kids, Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and Auggie (August Maturo). Topanga is a lawyer and Corey teaches junior high school history. Riley and her best friend Maya (Sabrina Carpenter) are Corey’s students.

I enjoyed the pilot, if only for sentimental value. My generation grew up with Corey, Topanga & Co, so it’s kind of surreal to see them as adults with children as their own.

Will I watch? I haven’t watched Disney channel in years and I don’t get Disney anymore in my cable package, so probably not. But for the tween set, I can see this show taking on a life of its own separate from Boy Meets World.

And if any adults want to watch (and I know you want to), the pilot is on Itunes.
