Inside Pop

This week, we're talking about the recent announcement of TV cancellations and renewals- which shows were chopped (Quantico, Rise) and which ones were surprisingly revived by another network (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Last Man Standing?!) and the one show that Sean may just start a Twitter campaign to save.

Then, we discuss the two unique songs that Andre 3000 recently released that are dedicated to his late mother and father and what we think of his new sound.

And Sean shares his experience at a recent Florence + The Machine concert.

Plus, Amita reviews and rates last week's Big Sell, the Japanese Anime series on Netflix, Aggretsuko and sells Sean a new R&B acapella artist, Madison McFerrin.

Andrew Ti

This week, Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler and Andrew Ti are joined by British actor and comedian Humphrey Ker. The gang takes a look at the biggest transatlantic pairing of the year: The Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Humphrey is all about Eurovision, the global music competition that showcases some of the best singing--and host banter--in the world. Margaret is all about the podcast Cocaine and Rhinestones, which tells the history of country music, warts and all. Guy is all about The Party, a movie he was certain he would hate, but it flipped his expectations in the best possible way. Andrew is all about the cancellation and swift revival of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

The panel will discuss the upcoming Royal Wedding, why this sort of extravaganza captures the attention of a global audience and why it was worth a Lifetime TV movie.

With Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler, Andrew Ti and Humphrey Ker.

That’s My Jam:

Humphrey Ker - Françoise Hardy - Comment Te Dire Adieu?.

Andrew Ti - The Fitness - Day Job

Margaret Wappler - Liz Phair - Fuck and Run.

Guy Branum Mohammed Assaf - Dommi Falastini.

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to our Spotify playlists.

Very Podcast this week. Sage Francis and B. Dolan, separately amazing road warrior MCs and together THE EPIC BEARD MEN supergroup you’ve been waiting for came and sit down with Jonah, Cash, and a commute harried Neil Mahoney.
