About This Show
25 years ago, a 12-year-old boy kept a diary. He wrote in it every single day of the year 1993. This year – 2018 – that boy is now a 37-year-old man, and he's going through that diary, week by week, to see how he's different, how he's the same, and what we can learn by figuring out who we used to be.

We finally make contact with the elusive Mrs. Waring! She gives us some insights into the mind and motivations of a 12-year-old. Joining Jedediah and Torrey for this episode is the oft-mentioned Matt, and together they tackle topics like sleepovers (which there’s a lot of talk about this week), alarm clocks (are red or blue ones more disruptive?), The Incredible Crash Dummies (the toys, not the band), Little Jed’s 12th birthday party (which happened 25 years ago today despite it being Matt’s actual birthday yesterday [Happy Birthday, Matt!]), and the surprising and salacious and unsuccessfully redacted events of that night. Along the way, Little Jed messes up calling a phone number, is SUPER sleepy, and almost kills his pet bird. Drew the illustrations? Torrey Paquette. Wrote and performed the theme song? Marshall York. Guest hosted? Matt Sacco. #releasethetapeWCAX
