The Sleepover Club: Will We Ever Stop Romanticising The Past?

Tired of the remake of the remake? The love of nostalgia is everywhere right now, from fashion and music to films and tv. We're taking a deep-dive into why exactly we love to look back on the past, in a special episode co-hosted by our deputy editor Gina Tonic.

Is capitalism to blame? Is it easier to dwell on what's already happened instead of looking to the future? Where is the line between making stories diverse for the better versus checking a box without enacting any real change? Come on the journey with us as we try and work out how exactly nostalgia culture got so big.
