IMMP

The Inter-Millennium Media Project, where a GenX dad subjects his Millennial son to 20th century media.

About the show

In each episode of the Inter-Millennium Media Project, Matthew Porter (@byMatthewPorter) and his son Ian Porter (@ItemCrafting) explore a TV show, movie or other artifact from Matthew's youth. What stands the test of time? What doesn’t? And what's still worth binging in the new millennium?

Son learns what made Dad ... whatever he is today. And Dad learns what Son thinks of all this.

What's the fun in having a kid if you can't warp his mind?


New shows come out every other Monday.
