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 are getting geared up for the release of Detective Pikachu this weekend. And what better way to get pumped up than by having Andrew explain the worldwide phenomenon of Pokémon? Take a listen!
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.
Join us this week as Courtenay, Shannon, and our guest, Mikayla, talk Tomb Raider. We forced ourselves to watch the old movies in preparation for the new Tomb Raider movie coming out this week—all so you wouldn’t have to. You’re so lucky we care about you so much because those movies were rough. We also talk about video game movies in general and why they tend to be so bad. Get ready for a riff-rollicking good time!
