Episode 16: The Force Awakens

Pop Culture Footnotes_The Force Awakens

The Last Jedi comes out this week. Are we so excited we’re practically reduced to tears? No. Why would you even ask that? Regardless of who’s crying and who’s not, we at Pop Culture Footnotes are getting geared up for Episode VIII in a big way. So join Courtenay, Shannon, and special guest Corinne as we miss Tana while they’re sick and fill you in on everything (we think) you need to know to go and see the next installment of the Star Wars saga.

And as always, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.  Remember to rate, review, subscribe if you’re listening on iTunes. And let us know what you’d like to hear about in future episodes; send your ideas to us at popculturefootnotes@gmail.com!

Episode 15: The Room

Pop Culture Footnotes_The Room

With The Disaster Artist coming out this week, we figured we’d take a little time to discuss the best worst movie ever made: Tommy Wiseau’s trainwreck, The Room. Shannon sums up the film’s overly complicated and often nonsensical plot, and we share our favorite lines and moments, play a little trivia game to test our knowledge, and generally have a rollicking good time.

Episode 14: The 1st Annual PCF Thank Party

Pop Culture Footnotes_PCF Thank Party

We know it’s a couple of days past Thanksgiving, but we feel we’d be remiss if we didn’t express a little gratitude. So join us as we celebrate our 1st Annual PCF Thank Party, where we discuss some of the pop culture things we’ve been grateful for in the past year.

While you’re here, we’d like to express a boatload of gratitude to you, our listener. The three of us have had a ball putting on this podcast for the past few months, but it’s been incredibly gratifying to get feedback and comments from all of you. Thanks for being here with us, and thanks for listening. We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

Hold the phone! Before you run out to see Justice League, join Courtenay, Shannon, Tana, and special guest Andrew from the Pop Pop Culture podcast as we discuss the comic book versions of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg. We also give our opinions of the new movie so you can (hopefully!) avoid having to go and see it yourself.

Bonus! We also take the following quiz to see which DC superhero we are. Follow along by taking the quiz here.

PS. We are super grateful to Andrew for coming on this week to fill in the gaps in our comic book knowledge. Be sure to give him and Pop Pop Culture a little love at any of the following links:

Episode 12: Murder on the Orient Express & Agatha Christie

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS

Join us this week as Courtenay, Shannon, and Tana review the new Murder on the Orient Express movie. We also talk a bit more about the OG OCD detective, Hercule Poirot, some of Agatha Christie’s other works, and the influence that this prolific writer has had on the murder mystery genre.

Also, if you liked the short Stranger Things preview we gave you on last week’s episode, check us out on this week’s episode of Pop Pop Culture! We sat down with host Andrew Stevens to talk recent pop culture news and give our thoughts on the latest season of Netflix’s hit show, Stranger Things. You can find the episode on iTunes and the Pop Pop Culture website. And if you like what you hear, please give Pop Pop Culture a little love on Facebook and Twitter.

Enjoy!

Episode 11: V for Vendetta

Pop Culture Footnotes_V for Vendetta

Some ideas are indeed bulletproof, including the idea that Alan Moore’s classic V for Vendetta deserves a podcast episode. Join Courtenay, Shannon, and Tana as we celebrate Guy Fawkes day with a discussion about the man, the mask, and the ideas they both represent. We see no reason this talk about “treason” should ever be forgot!

Episode 10: Ah, Real Zombies!!!

Pop Culture Footnotes_Ah, Real Zombies!!

Sorry the episode is going up a little late this week! Someone (*cough* Courtenay *cough*) just couldn’t wait to watch the newest season of Stranger Things and consequently didn’t finish editing the episode in time for our typical Saturday release. To make it up to you, here’s a picture of Shannon recording this week’s episode on the evolution of zombies in cinema:

Anyway, we hope you enjoy this episode, in which Courtenay, Shannon, and Tana discuss zombie movies through the years and how they reflect the cultural fears of their time.

Happy Halloween, everyone!
