Remember Pogs? The mere mention of them will either be met with utter confusion or pure nostalgic joy.

Pogs were arguably the biggest fad of all time, but if you were a kid in the period of 1993-1997, then you most likely had your own collection of these things (unless of course, you’re Morgan living in Cornwall, apparently).

In this episode, Tom takes Morgan through a history of the short-lived ’90s craze. We look back at Pog history, the rules of the game, what went wrong, and why it was banned from school playgrounds everywhere. We also remember the many Pog-knockoffs, including Slammer Whammers and Tazos.

Tom also recalls a story from his youth that he’s not proud of, that he’s never told before…

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
