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.
New seasons of Broad City and House of Cards are both stronger than ever, but the TV show that's rocking our worlds right now is The People Vs. O.J. Simpson. Wham Bam Pow's Ricky Carmona joins us to talk it through.
That’s My Jam:
Wynter Mitchell - March Madness performed live on SNL by Future
Ricky Carmona - Am I Wrong by Anderson Paak
Margaret Wappler - Golden Coast by Allison Weiss
Guy Branum - JAP Battle from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.
