Dear 1995

By Gwen Bueno de Mesquita

Welcome to Dear 1995. Every week, host Gwen Bueno de Mesquita, alongside co-host Brooke who brings the brilliant insight, reads aloud totally unedited entries from her 1995 high-school diary.


The diary covers everything from your average teenage angst to a first kiss. Gwen and Brooke delve deep into the roots of the teenage mind and how it relates back to them now as parents and, empowered women who maybe question a few of those lunch time back seat blow jobs in 1996.


Dear 1995 is for teenagers and parents who can relate, Gen X and Yers who remember when Ross told Rachel she was his lobster and Millennials who think they remember, but actually just watched it for the first time on Netflix. It’s filled with references to favourite ‘90s essentials like mix tapes, beepers, getting film developed and 1990 throw-back tunes.


Please tune in weekly and join in for a cringe and a giggle (and maybe some zima) on DEAR 1995!
