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!
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 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!
In this new episode, we’re joined by our resident children’s literature expert Heidi to talk about children’s author Roald Dahl. We discuss the life, work, and impact of this great man and share some of our top favorite moments from his books.
To be or not to be? That is the question—at least according to William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. This week, we’re joined by Erin to discuss the tragedy of the Prince of Denmark, as well as notable adaptations, parodies, and references.
This week, we explore Ian Fleming, the man turned spy turned novelist. Join us as Courtenay attempts to stump Shannon with Ian Fleming trivia and we talk about the fascinating details of the man who created the most most widely recognized spy franchise of all time.
How’d you do on our Fleming trivia questions? Be sure to let us know in the comments!
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.
