Guy, Wynter, and Margaret are joined by special guests Ricky Carmona and Corin Tucker for our first ever live show! This week's topic, summer camp and campy camp movies. Pop culture trivia! Xanadu! Movie and music advice! All that and more on this special episode of Pop Rocket!!

NOTE #1: This is a live show, so forgive the audio issues. We tried to clean it up as best as we can, but we're not miracle workers.

NOTE #2: After we taped this episode, someone pointed out to us that Sleepaway Camp is a somewhat transphobic movie. We didn't know that when we taped, so bear
that in mind if you plan on checking it out.
