Ross and Carrie Await the End Times (Part 5): The End Is Here

| 0 comments

Things get exciting at Amazing Facts, as our faithful teachers finally admit what we've suspected all along: that they are here to bring us into their particular branch of Seventh Day Adventism, complete with end-times prophecy, vegetarianism, and an admonition against jewelry. Cringe along as Carrie, Ross, and their friend Jim awkwardly decline to join the remnant church. Plus, Ross takes the guys on a tour of Disney Animation Studios, before finding out that Disney is actually teaching kids to disobey all that is good and holy. And we invite David on the show! It's our final Amazing Facts episode, and it's a doozy!

This week we have an all women episode of Pop Rocket! Karen is hosting, and the gang is talking about the new Hulu series of Margaret Atwood's 1985 classic novel The Handmaid's Tale. Margaret tells us about the differences between the series and the book. They explore whether or not Offred's internal dialogue works when portrayed as voiceover, and whether the racial make-up of the show was intentional. Does the music work, and does the show reflect anything from our current political climate? Margaret's all about is relishing in the dismantling of Fox News by the hands of its key contributors and Wynter talks about Netflix's Dear White People. Plus, the panel shares some light, vintage jams to help cleanse our palates after a particularly heavy discussion.

Read Margaret's interview with Margaret Atwood for the Los Angeles Times and don't forget to listen to Guy's interview with Atwood on Bullseye from 2015.

Jams:
Karen: Summertime - The Sunday's
Margaret: Perfect Strangers Theme Song
Wynter: California Girls -
Katy Perry

Karen Tongson, Margaret Wappler, and Wynter Mitchell

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.

After talking about it constantly during the span of this podcast, we're FINALLY discussing Bachelor Pad, the short-lived offshoot of the franchise we know and ... tolerate. Specifically, the second season of Bachelor Pad, which pops off very hard in the premiere and never really stops.
