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.

We sat down with the legendary authority on Denver music, Tom Murphy, to talk about his obsession - Denver music. Bands that were, bands that are, bands that are yet to come? DIY for your nerve!

"That John Denver's full of shit, man."

Ain't it the truth, Lloyd Christmas. We hear yah. And so does our guest, comedian Whitmer Thomas. Join us as we discuss all things Carrey. A figure of renown amongst children in 1994. Did you quote Ace Ventura, The Mask and Dumb and Dumber constantly? Did you cry your eyes out at Eternal Sunshine? Of course you did! Follow us, and LEMMIESHOWYAHSOMETHIN on today's episode.

Sometimes we do episodes where we cannot stop talking about the subject due to the absolute obsession of our guest. And then sometimes we do episodes where we talk about all sorts of things including the subject. This is one of those. Drum machines, the 80s in general, dream pop, synthesizers, Joy Division, even U2! When you get Oko Tygra drummer Neil Robertson talking, you go all over the place. Listen in, won't you?

This may be our least on-topic episode yet, which is saying a lot. Join us as we ostensibly talk to Seth and Spencer Stone of The Dirty Few about Britney Spears, but then they don't really care and would rather talk about Mountain Dew, but then they have 6 beers each, but then... oh, just listen.
