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.

Here's what comes of putting a TV in your child's bedroom: Kids tired for school the next day, a lack of punishment available when they are sent to their rooms, and an unending love of the man they call Coco. Kevin and our guest, journalist Isa Jones, LOVE Conan. He is "their guy" as Marc Maron would say. Join us as we discuss the gigantic, red-headed weirdo we let into our homes every night, not to mention the crazy world he creates around him.
