Should old pop culture be forgot and never brought to mind? Certainly not! That’s why Shannon, Courtenay, and Andrew have come together this week to bring you a recap of the biggest pop culture moments from 2018. Happy New Year, everyone!
Happy Holidays from all of us here at Pop Culture Footnotes! To celebrate, we’re covering a longtime holiday pop culture favorite: Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. Yeah, we covered a ballet. We classy like that.
Buffalo gals, won’t you come out tonight and dance by the light we shed on Christmas classic, It’s a Wonderful Life? Join Courtenay, Shannon, and this week’s guest Andrew as we dive into what makes this movie such an iconic part of the holidays.
In every pod that must be done, there is an element of fun. And finding that fun was a snap this week, thanks to special guest Shannon (not to be confused with Shannon Prime, our regular co-host). Join Courtenay and Shannon Squared as we explain everything you need to know about Mary Poppins before the new movie comes out this weekend!
We’re getting ready for the release of Mary Queen of Scots this month with a little history refresh. What was the deal with that king with all the wives? Are Bloody Mary and Mary Queen of Scots the same person? Is Elizabeth I officially our hero? Let us be your Tudor tutors, with answers to all this and more on this week’s episode!
It’s a bright cold day in December and the clocks are striking…one, I guess. With the recent elections and all the politics talk, we figured the time was right to cover the oft-referenced George Orwell classic, 1984. Enjoy!
We at Pop Culture Footnotes have so much to be thankful for this year, so we are keeping up with our now-yearly tradition of hosting a Thank Party to celebrate the pop culture-related stuff we’re grateful for.
And while we’re on the subject of thanks, we wanted to say thank you again to all of our many contributors from the past year (many of whom are on this episode!). Without you and your expertise, Shannon and Courtenay would be completely and utterly lost.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
