We're back to business as usual in this month's Dead Pilots Society episode. Our dead pilot is Sterling, written by Dan Sterling (The Sarah Silverman Program, The Office, Girls, South Park, The Interview, Long Shot). Sterling is about a TV news producer whose life is turned upside down when he is paired up with a beautiful, loose-cannon reporter. Andrew sat down with Dan to talk about his impressive career: Getting the job running The Daily Show after hitting it off with Jon Stewart at a Comedy Central Emmy Party, despite never having worked in late night...The decade long journey from his script Flarsky to Long Shot... Writing The Interview and getting caught in the middle of an international diplomatic firestorm, and why the writer is the only one who doesn't get a bodyguard... How Sterling was partly inspired by his working relationship with Sarah Silverman... and much more!

Did Miss Mary Mack die in that nursery rhyme? Or did James have a dark upbringing? Nnekay investigates! Before we get to the korners we''re talking Stacey Abram giving the response to the State of the Union representing the Democratic Party and what that means for the future of the party. Tessa Thompson is vowing to work for more female directors, and we dig in to a little Celebrity Big Brother and their complicated ass rules. James is leading this episode with a Korner called his State of the Que-Union... see what he did there? He's breaking down the state of affairs for the LGBTQ+ community, including the horrific racism and homophobia that Jussie Smollett endured in Chicago, plus Queer superheroes on the TV screen, will we have our first out gay Presidential contender? What is this new scientific finding, and California law around HIV that is potentially going to change the landscape for those living with the virus?

These wonder twins sure are cranky! Some might even say Crotchety! Not really, though! They're here to first discuss the Emmy's which neither of them watched- and dive into a deep discussion as to where IS the line between being PC and comedy. Next up, something they both did see: Captain Marvel Trailer. Whew Lawd this looks good! Also was it weird for Vulture Magazine to feature a story about Soon-Yi Previn written by one of Woody Allen's friend? On to the main event- It's QUIZLETTE Time, Back 2 Skool edition. James guides Nnekay through some of the hottest topics including, Violas Davis and The Help, Bi-Pride Parade, Julie Chen... Moonves, Bert and Ernie being lovers, Anita Hill the hero, Cynthia Nixon, and... Helen Keller? Don't forget to check out James at Caroline's on Broadway

Pop Rocket Ep. 191 2018 Summer Jams

Between the VMA's and Yom Kippur, we've got our own version of the high holidays here at Pop Rocket: The SUMMER JAMS episode! We will anoint OR NOT anoint the title of Song of the Summer to the most banging artist of the past few months. And yes, the band is back together again. The full panel - Guy Branum, Karen Tongson, Wynter Mitchell (don't forget) Rohrbaugh, and Margaret Wappler - put on their Grammy judge hats and measure up the best cuts from music makers this past season.

What criteria make a tune a summertime anthem? Is it the dance beat? The song's ubiquity? The convertible factor? A dark city feeling? Does the magic of Cardi B's "I Like It" rest solely on its sample of Peter Rodriquez's I Like It Like That? Is Zedd, Marren Morris, Grey's "The Middle" too much negotiation and not enough sex, love, and urgency? Find out which song made Silas get down like no one was watching and which panelist has a knack for converting jams into pet cat lullabies. Shout outs also go to honorable mentions and listeners' suggestions that didn't quite make the cut.

All Abouts

Margaret is all about Mandy Moore's newly remodeled mid-century modern home in Pasadena.

Wynter is all about TV writer and producer Linda Bloodworth Thomason's op-ed in The Hollywood Reporter where she channels a glowing fury and details the misogynistic bullying she faced from disgraced former CBS CEO Les Moonves. Les Moonves, Go fuck yourself!

Karen is all about the post-BBC reboot of The Great British Baking Show.

Guy is all about Cynthia Nixon's appearance at the old school, crusty Brooklyn gay bar The Metropolitan before the New York Governor Primary.

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

Summer Jam Finalists:

Cardi B - I Like It

Zedd, Maren Morris, Grey - The Middle

Ariana Grande - R.E.M.

Maroon 5 - Girls Like You

Lizzo - Boys

Years & Years - All For You
