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!
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.
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!
New episode! This week, Courtenay and Shannon talk about the Emmys. We explain how the awards work, who the major nominees are this year, and who we think will win. Place your bets now!
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:
