What happens when you strand 15 or 16 people on a beach with few to no resources and make them compete for a million dollars? Reality TV gold, that’s what. Join Courtenay, Shannon, and our guest Genevieve as we discuss the grandpappy of all reality shows, CBS’ Survivor!
We’re sorry about the delay this week. We took a little break for Labor Day weekend, but that just means you get two episodes this weekend, right? Join Courtenay, Shannon, and Lenore this week as we discuss the longest running variety TV show ever: Saturday Night Live. It’s just a barrel of laughs!
This week, Courtenay, Shannon, and guest Andrew bring you an extra long episode of Pop Culture Footnotes! Is an hour and a half long enough to cover everything you need to know about The Simpsons? No. Not even close. But we do go over the top 10 episodes of all time (according to Andrew) so…
PS. We forgot to mention it on the episode, but our podcast name was actually inspired by a line from The Simpsons! Check out the clip that started it all:
We want to believe…that this is one of our best episodes yet! We are thrilled to have Tana back this week as we discuss a favorite show of nerds everywhere: The X Files. Tana guides us through five different episodes and fills us in on everything you need to know about Mulder, Scully, and the gang. The truth is out there!
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!
Sorry the episode is going up a little late this week! Someone (*cough* Courtenay *cough*) just couldn’t wait to watch the newest season of Stranger Thingsand consequently didn’t finish editing the episode in time for our typical Saturday release. To make it up to you, here’s a picture of Shannon recording this week’s episode on the evolution of zombies in cinema:
Anyway, we hope you enjoy this episode, in which Courtenay, Shannon, and Tana discuss zombie movies through the years and how they reflect the cultural fears of their time.
