Our childhood's making a comeback and we're living for it. Back in 2006, when we were nine years old, the iconic High School Musical was released and with it came a new era in the Disney world. Now-global superstars like Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, and Ashley Tisdale emerged, and ushered in with them the likes of Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, The Jonas Brothers, and Dylan and Cole Sprouse. All of these (and a few other) legends made up what we like to call the Golden Era of the Disney Channel, which we lived vicariously until we were too old to admit we still knew all the words to "We're All In This Together" in public.

Cut to 2019: …and Zac Efron is still a heartthrob, Vanessa Hudgens is making more corny movies (but on Netflix now), and Ashley Tisdale's musical career woke up from its coma. Miley Cyrus did us all an enormous favour and is now sporting the Hannah Montana look on a daily basis. The Sprouse twins have graduated college and are back in the public eye. And, hallelujah, The Jonas Brothers are releasing music again. Soon, all our favourite and extremely binge-able Disney Channel shows and movies will be mere clicks away on Disney+.

On this episode, we pay homage to the icons who shaped our pre-teen years, and celebrate how incredible it is that they're doing us a favour of being cool again: now that we're in our early twenties. Never forgetting those who allowed the Disney Channel stars to rise, we also talk about our favourite twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (sorry, Dylan and Cole, we still love you), and the "resurrection" of the one and only legend Lindsay Lohan.

Tangents in this episode include a lot of Adam Driver, Katie's personal experiences on the set of High School Musical 3, how likely each of us are to survive the zombie apocalypse, Reese Witherspoon, Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell's parenting decisions, Martha Stewart's time in prison, and whose parents allowed us to fulfill our dreams and see the High School Musical cast and The Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato in concert.

We're passionate about this subject and so we talk a lot. Not apologising for it.

This week's recommendations include on-brand ones like Sonny with a Chance and Hannah Montana: The Movie, as well as newer shows for so-called adults like the absolute gem that is Derry Girls and Aidy Bryant's Shrill.
