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!
