What are Paula and Adam thankful for? You, dear listeners. You. Which is why we spend some time reading your letters and playing your fantastic submissions to our Theme Song Contest. And then we treat you to a review of a heartwarming Thanksgiving classic so you can decide if it’s worth your time to rush through that second helping of turkey and go out to see “Creed 2.” Yes, we watched the very first “Rocky.” SPOILER ALERT: In the original, the turkey doesn’t make it.

Are interstellar geopolitics a part of a healthy medical recovery plan? Which cast member do you trust an entire page of dialogue to? It’s the episode that requires a brain transplant to enjoy.

Come see us live on tour with Greatest Gen Khan!

This week Pop Rocket celebrates its 200th episode!!! To commemorate this auspicious occasion, Karen, Margaret and Wynter take a look at how each of them has evolved from the quaint, carefree days of 2015 to the unrelenting hellscape that is 2018. Remember the blue dress? Sorry, remember the white dress? They'll reminisce about that fun moment in pop culture, talk Taylor Swift then and now, and how much things have changed in terms of trans visibility from back in 2015 when Caitlyn Jenner sat down for an interview with Diane Sawyer on 20/20, and the strides we've made since then.

In addition, Guy takes us with him to the seaside town of Mendocino and lets us eavesdrop as he attempts to talk to his mother Deb and his niece Olivia about the pop culture they are currently consuming.

All Abouts

Margaret highly recommends There There: A Novel by Tommy Orange.

Wynter is all about Michelle Obama’s new book Becoming, but in audiobook format.

Karen’s into Survivor 37: David vs Goliath.

That's My Jam

Wynter - Rihanna - Bitch Better Have My Money

Karen - Carly Rae Jepsen - Party for One

Margaret - Lower Dens - To Die in L.A.

With Karen Tongson, Wynter Mitchell-Rohrbaugh, and Margaret Wappler.

Overlord

A fresh episode of Who Shot Ya? right out of the oven. We've got the classic crew of Ricky, Alonso, and April, and they're talking about the newest installment in the "Nazi Zombie" movie genre. That's right, we're discussing Overlord. In addition to that, April is only slightly "yawny" this episode. Alonso is excited about Oprah's Favorite Things list. And Ricky is hyped over a Tribe Called Quest and Wu-Tang mash-up album. Plus, the crew discusses the life and work of Stan Lee. We've got another installment of Alonso's Christmas Minute. And, as always, we've got staff picks.

In news, Spike Lee wants to make a musical, FX asks the Supreme Court to throw out Olivia de Havilland's lawsuit, and James Woods has a moment of redemption.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - Life
Alonso - The Other Side of the Wind and They'll Love Me When I'm Dead
April - Zama

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!

Next week we're discussing Widows.

With April Wolfe, Alonso Duralde, and Ricky Carmona.
