This week, Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler and Karen Tongson discuss HBO’s Sharp Objects. It’s based on the Gillian Flynn Novel of the same name and is about a woman, Camille Preaker, played by Amy Adams, who returns to her childhood home to combat her personal demons and look into a number of unsolved murders.

Margaret is all about Won't You Be My Neighbor?, the Fred Rogers biopic that’s guaranteed to conjure up feelings of love and kindness even in this divisive time. Karen is all about the second season of the Netflix series GLOW, especially the eighth episode, which may be the show’s crowning achievement. Guy is all about the video game Fobia on Steam, which finally gave him the type of gaming that he can embrace.

The group will give their thoughts on the HBO series Sharp Objects, including why Amy Adams works so well playing a real person. They also discuss what makes the HBO television production model work so well, and why that might change in the future. Plus, they’ll introduce some new elements to the podcast: The Wappler Test and the Pop Rocket seal of approval.

The Pop Rocket 2018 Summer Book Club is a go! We’re reading Crazy Rich Asians. Join the Facebook group and get in on the conversation.

With Karen Tongson, Guy Branum and Margaret Wappler.

That’s My Jam:

Margaret - Kiira - Messy.

Karen - Swingout Sister - Breakout.

Guy - Pitbull - Free Free Free.

We’re in the middle of a holiday week, so it’s a good time to take a look at the greatest holiday for wrestling fans: Ice Cream Christmas! That’s right, we’re looking back in the time of our fandom to once again take a look at a past WrestleMania.

For our previous special member-only episode, Mike, Hal and Danielle looked at one of the best events ever, WrestleMania X-Seven; this time, the gang is taking a look at one of the worst: WrestleMania 2000!

In a year of so many great PPV’s from the WWE, ironically the one show that didn’t live up to standard was the biggest one for the company. But what made it not work? Was it the convoluted main event? Or the lack of any traditional singles matches?

Plus, we’ll talk about the things that definitely did work, like the Triangle Ladder match between the Hardy Boyz, Edge and Christian and the Dudley Boyz, and share some fun facts from the show that you may not be aware of, even if you already watched this show 18 years ago.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

Money in the Bank, Jinder Mahal, NXT, TakeOver, Chicago, WWE, SDLive, RAW, Smackdown, wrestling, E3, New Japan, NJPW, New Japan Pro Wrestling, Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, Aleister Black, Baron Corbin, James Ellsworth, Asuka, Velveteen Dream, Ricochet, Alexa Bliss, Drew McIntyre,

It’s a brand new week in wrestling as Money in the Bank is finally on the horizon!

The stage is set for those who will compete in the ladder matches on June 17th, but who’s in the best position to get that golden ticket for the world title match? And has WWE been building this up the contest for all of the entrants in the right way?

Plus, NXT red-hot angle between Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa has continued to pick up steam, and has now incorporated Candice LeRae, Gargano’s real-life wife. But she’s someone who’s known around the country for standing on her own; shouldn’t she be plowing her own path rather than just following in her man’s story?

All of this, plus a look whether or not the Universal Title is relevant, the B-Team barbecue vs. Naomi and Lana’s dance-off and Julian stan’s for the cruiserweight championship match between Cedric Alexander and Buddy Murphy.

Britney Young from GLOW

The Netflix series GLOW returns on June 29th! Lindsey Kelk sat down with Britney Young who stars in the show as Carmen Wade aka Machu Picchu. Young tells us all about what it was like to make the show in a post-#MeToo world, why she loves Lucha Underground and what it was like to get in the ring with Kia Stevens.

Britney can be found on Twitter and Instagram.

Resistance to this episode is futile. This week, April talks to writer, director, and actress Marianna Palka (Good Dick, Bitch, GLOW) about the undersung Star Trek film Star Trek Generations. Marianna covers what makes this particular Star Trek film so beautiful and how it has inspired her to be a better person. She also talks about her filmmaking process and how there is no reason to be unkind and frustrated on a film set. April and Marianna also dive into the work that Marianna has done to promote awareness for Huntington's disease, a disorder that runs in her family. This is a truly fascinating episode that, of course, goes boldly where no woman has gone before.

Marianna Palka's Bitch is available on Google Play.
And if you haven't seen it yet, go watch Star Trek Generations.

Summer Skool is in session! But not Jeff Sessions- fuck that guy! The Wonder Twins of Podcasting are still talking about the 4th of July, and trying to come up with the lyrics of Stars and Stripes for Ever. Get ready to learn about the game that is changing dominoes forever: Hollywood Dominoes! And what happened when James had a showdown with his Aunties at the 4th of July: a star was born! ... again. Nnekay weighs in about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. And it's Nnekay vs. James in the debate about Bidets... we've been waiting for this! It is the Minority Korner Summer Skool Spectacular Session Quizlet! We hope Nnekay studied: What city is home to the largest Book Fair in the U.S.? Hint it's a place you might want to book for your summer travels- it's a hot place to be LGBT! Are frosted tips making a comeback? Is the gay leather scene dead? Who prefers their mens hairy or hairless, Ladies or Gays? Iggy Azealia & Azealia Banks united together! Then Nnekay walks us through Medicare and what it really is, how it relates to race and gender and what we can do to protect it. Also Jay-Z's 4:44! It's time to get crazy!

**This episode contains spoilers**

This week Guy, Margaret, and Wynter talk about The Big Sick, the new romantic comedy from Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani which tells the story of how they met and fell in love. Because because the film is based in tragedy, with Emily falling into a coma in the middle of the film, some people are hesitant to call it a romantic comedy. But not our panel! They discuss how the usual tropes of a romantic comedy get flipped around, and how those changes allow for a more candid and interesting story. They also discuss why brown men falling for white women on screen is problematic, but maybe not in the case of The Big Sick.Guy talks about why he's all about this season of Big Brother, and Wynter tells us why we should forget about all of the other iterations of Peter Parker and go see the Tom Holland led Spider-Man: Homecoming. Plus, the "Song of the Summer" thread is live in the Facebook group and the panelists aren't too happy with the nominations.
