Alex Schmidt is joined by Adam Tod Brown and Chet Wild, the hosts of Unpopular Opinion's "The 90s Sucked" podcast. They're exploring huge, meaningful, world-altering ways the 1990s never stopped happening to us. They'll also reveal which element of the '90s stuffs the nation's landfills to this day, which '90s band happily played a show in a living room, and which '90s after-effects are most worth looking out for in 2020, 2024, and beyond.
