In an age where nearly all information is a Google or Wiki search away, it’s easy to forget that real, first-hand experiences of what the world used to be like are right in our own families and communities.

That’s the mission of the subreddit r/AskOldPeople. It’s a place for members of one generation to gain perspective from those who came before. The result has been some deep conversations about politics, personal finance, technology, and the timeless personal wisdom you just can’t get from the news or a textbook.

This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet content on stage) speak to GetOffMyLawn, a moderator who curated some of the best conversations the subreddit has to offer.
