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!
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!
We are the Footnotes, my friend! Don’t stop us now because Courtenay, Shannon, and guest David Stauffer are going to “take you out tonight” with some facts and info about everybody’s favorite ’80s rock band, Queen. Come join us on this bicycle race and we will rock you until you bite the dust. Bohemian Rhapsody.
Double feature with Tana this weekend! This episode, we’re celebrating the spookiest of holidays by talking about legendary filmmaker John Carpenter—creator of horror classics like Halloween and The Thing. OOOoooooooOOOO!
Honey, honey, how this episode thrills us! In case you missed it, Mamma Mia 2 came out earlier this week. So we are so excited to have Tana back this episode to talk to us about ABBA, jukebox musical (and movie) Mamma Mia, and cover groups. Is Pierce Brosnan’s singing voice as bad as the internet says? Listen here to find out!
Our apologies for posting late this week! Courtenay spaced it and thought she hit “Publish.” Turns out she didn’t. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
This week, we’re excited to have our friend Karla back to wrap up our discussion of the Beatles. We talk about everything from Magical Mystery Tour to “The End” and beyond.
Bonus! Here’s a link to our bonified Spotify playlist, including all the songs we played on this episode plus some of our favorite Beatles covers. Score.
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!
