It's the day when Pop Culture fans and Sports fans join forces to create what feels like a national holiday! In this episode, we dive into the Superbowl and discuss:

The pre game turn up in Philly that Sean experienced first hand
Justin Timberlake's Halftime performance (guess which Inside Pop co-host couldn't even bring himself to watch the entire thing)
The Prince tribute that should've happened
Then, we seamlessly segue into a review of Timberlake's latest release, Man of the Woods.

Plus, Amita reviews one of the most heartbreaking hours on television, the post Super Bowl episode of This Is Us.

And finally in the Big Sell, Amita reviews an essay on Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri. And speaking of sports - she pitches a softball to Sean with a Hamilton inspired Big Sell.

Minority Korner

This week we are on FIRE! THE SUPER BOWL came and went, but we're not here to talk about sports... we are here for GAGA. She dangled her ass into the arena like a spider and killed it! Also James touches on a Sundance lady brunch of the rich and the famous where they had a moving conversation about race... Celebrities they're just like us! James took himself out on a little Broadway Baby Date with himself to go see Mel B from the Spice Girls sing it up as Roxy Heart. Did she do a good job? Has she improved since her stint as Mimi in Rent way back when Nnekay saw her in the early 00s? Nnekay surprises James with a little information regarding her foray into the world of THEATER. She might just be ready for a new chapter in her life! Now on to the Korners! James is up first this week and is covering The Pomo Afro Homo Theater Troupe- Black. Queer. Theater. 'nough said! They have been producing incredible work work for years, so James breaks it down, by covering selections of sketches, their founders, and the future! Nnekay has a Hodge Podge Korner this week ya'll which she has titled- Just The Tips with Nnekay. She is covering books to help children learn compassion, Ariana Huffington's tips on how to combat outrage but to still stay active, as well as a tip for great cinema, the PBS documentary called Birth of a Movement about 1900s activist, William Monroe Trotter, who fought against the original extremely racist movie, Birth of a Nation. We also have a new Korner where we toss it to the Korner Kids and see what they've been up to! So hold on to your butts, get ready to rumble, and check your lace front, because we are ready to get you PUMPED.
