Pop Culture, Autobiographically. Join hosts Kevin O'Brien and Taylor Gonda as they discuss things that matter, e.g. music, movies, books, and TV. We talk to guests and each other about pop culture and its never ending impact on our lives.

"The words. You are good with the words, man." So say we to our returning guest, author William Dewey. In out longest episode yet, we talk about one of our favorite shows of all time, Mad Men. Don Draper, Peggy Olson, Joan Harris, Roger Sterling, Pete Campbell, and on and on and on. We could name 40+ characters that we know and care about over the course of the show's 7 seasons, let alone countless scenes and even more moments of dialogue. Join us as we talk about what makes Mad Men so profoundly effective, enlightening and insightful.

Our favorite composer, Nathan Hall, returns to talk about another ethereal, divine Renaissance lady, Ms. Bjork. Having lived in Iceland for a year, Nathan can give us the lowdown on this small but vibrant land and the woman who in many ways represents all things Icelandic. We explore the ins, the outs, the belts, the whoops, the squeals, the ticks and tones. Oh, to get involved in the exchange of human emotions is ever so satisfying. It's human behavior, guys.

Go, go Power Rangers! Need we say more? We chat to Mr. Pacman's Jim Compton about those mighty morphin kids. You guys remember the saga of the Green Ranger? When all the Red Rangers teamed up? Or any of the 20-something different iterations of the show? Because Jim does, and he's got the convention ticket to prove it!
