PCP Episode 010: Best of 2010 Avery Awards

19 Jan

Now that all the self-serving smug of the Golden Globes is over and done with, we can get to some award show where you don’t buy your way in – PCP’s Best of 2010 Avery Awards. The “Avery’s” if you will. To be clear, you can in fact buy us out but, we have no ceremony, credibility or actual trophy (sorry to ruin the illusion). Just to let you all know, there are some candidates that got robbed. We’re talking unforgivably so. But, our format is that we can only vote on the media we’ve actually experienced first hand. It’s not the best system but, it’s near the worst. Not much of a pardon, I know. But, if you’d be so kind, take it easy and enjoy us wax poetically about the best dramatic film, game console, manga, animated series, indie comic book, music video and so much more. We do mean more. Seriously. I’m talking defenestration and at least one of us in traction.


PCP Episode 009: X-Men

12 Jan

Your favorite band of merry mutants is back. No, not the disciples of Professor X, but us over at the Pop Culture Podcast (I know, a grand statement of hubris on our part). This one is a spin-off of our previous comic books episode and focuses on the house that Wolverine (whom Avery hates by the way) built into a multi-million dollar franchise. We talk mostly the books this time but, we get into a taste of the shows and movies here and there as well. Check it out, comment and subscribe to us on iTunes if you’d be so kind. We’d be ever so grateful.

PCP Episode 003: Comic Books

5 Jan

This episode, the Pop Culture Podcast crew discuss comic books (which one should be able to infer from the title). We talk our origins in comics, the states of Marvel and DC, our favorite comic book characters and comic hype (plus what it means to be hardcore vs casual).

PCP Episode 008: Autumn Movies

5 Jan

The rebels of the Pop Culture Podcast are going back to where it started and doing a seasonal review of the recent movies to come in the last 3 months or so. There’s a lot to discuss but, a couple of members were loafing this season so there’s actually some calm discussion this time. Yes, it surprises me too. There some good discussion from Let Me In to Tron: Legacy with a whole lot of utter foolishness. If nothing else, you’ll love shots we take at each other. Alas, this episode is fail horn-free.
