Episode 65: PCF Thank Party 2, The ReThankening

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!

Pop Culture Footnotes_The English Patient

Join Courtenay, Shannon, and special guest Jenn as we dive into The English Patient this week. We discuss both the book and the film, contemplate the overall skeeziness of all the characters, and generally ponder the question: “How in the heck did this movie win so many awards?” You don’t have to be English to watch this movie, but you sure do need to be patient.

It’s a two-for-one week at Pop Culture Footnotes! This time, Heidi returns to join Courtenay and Shannon in celebrating the birthday of renowned children’s author J.M. Barrie.
