Pretty Much Pop is a culture podcast. We talk about TV, movies, music, games, podcasts, novels, comedy, theater, etc., exploring why and how we consume these things.
How does pop culture even work in a world that is so fragmented and connected? Where’s the line between trash and treasure? As a wit once put it: “If so-and-so is so famous, why have I never heard of them?” (Or as another wit once asked: “What the deal with [insert the thing you don’t get here]?”) We’ll take a crack at questions like these.
