Still haven’t seen Spider-Man: Far From Home? We got you covered with this brief overview of all things Spider-Man, from his comic book origins and various alternate-dimension iterations to his ill-fated TV show and multiple movie adaptations. Basically, we give you everything you need to know before you head to the theater (plus a little extra to help boost your nerd cred).
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!
Ve vant to suck your blood! In part two of our Tana double header, the PCF crew discusses that age old question: “What makes a vampire a vampire?” Can they handle direct sunlight? Are they susceptible to stakes, garlic, and/or decapitation? We try to get to the bottom of it all by discussing the many ways vampires are depicted in pop culture.
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:
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!
