Pop Rocket

Once again we’re firing on all cylinders this week! It’s an ultra-packed show covering everything from The Masked Singer, Surviving R. Kelly,
MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. and the need to move beyond moralistic posturing in critiquing comedy.

The panel get into a lively discussion of Marie Kondo’s Tidying Up on Netflix show. One panelist loves it, one panelist thinks it’s “sinister”, and a panelist named Guy is so obsessed with one of the families featured on the show he couldn’t stop talking about them.

All Abouts
Margaret shares her thoughts on the heartbreaking and disturbing six-part series Surviving R. Kelly

Guy is all about the 1998 film The Opposite of Sex, and explains how Terry Gross’ recent conversation with Kevin Hart made him appreciate it more.

Wynter is all about the M.I.A. documentary.

And Karen loves the new reality singing competition show The Masked Singer.

That's My Jam

Margaret: Sharon Van Etten’s - Seventeen

Guy: Carol Channing - Before the Parade Passes By

Karen: The Beths - Future Me Hates Me

Wynter: Tom Tom Club -Wordy Rappington

With Guy Branum, Karen Tongson, Margaret Wappler, Wynter Mitchell-Rohrbaugh

Bohemian Rhapsody

Don't stop me now! We're talking about the new Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. We are so lucky this week to be joined by friend of the podcast, film critic Katie Walsh. This episode was recorded the night of the election, so you can certainly hear a level of optimistic anxiety in all the host's voices. The crew dissects all the important parts of the new movie: Rami Malek's fake teeth, the bad jokes, and how many times the band members say that they're a family. Plus, we chat about the phenomenon of straight actors playing gay characters. AND, most importantly, Alonso kicks of the Holiday season with a new weekly segment called The El Mero Mero de Navidad Christmas Minute. Each week Alonso will recap all the Christmas movies he's watched from the past week. The only caveat is that he must do it in under a minute. And as always, we have staff picks.

In news, the titles for the new Avatar sequels are in, the LA Film Festival is no more, and JJ Abrams seeks a "Megadeal."

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - Hip-Hop Evolution
Alonso - Shirkers
April - Memories of Murder
Katie - El Ángel

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 Overlord.

With Katie Walsh, April Wolfe, Alonso Duralde, and Ricky Carmona.
