72- Nostalgia Be Damned

The two guests on today’s show are from the titular podcast, Nostalgia Be Damned! Brandon (former guest and co-host of We Need Movies with Jamie) and Zach Warren graciously let Jamie crash their podcast and record a special segment during Jamie’s surprise visit to the East Coast.

The guys simply discuss the lone topic: What is nostalgia? Where does it come from? And why do we feel it? A fitting topic considering Jamie’s run of #52PickUp from this very show.
