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.

I don't know if I'm unhappy because I'm not free, or if I'm not free because I'm unhappy." - Patricia Franchini. Ahhhh, French cinema. If you are looking for existentialism, casual sex, talk of love and hate, and heaping spoonfuls of ennui, you've come to the right place. Join us as we talk to journalist and comedian Byron Graham about Truffaut, Godard, and all the other men of the late 50s and early 60s who experimented in the auteur style and who changed filmmaking forever.

Kevin and Taylor aren't often around kids. This could be the reason they thought it would e a really fun idea to ask a 3 year-old her thoughts on the Disney movie Frozen. It wasn't a terrible idea, they just got more slobber and less insight.

Join us as we chat with musician Michael Saul and his adorable kid Miranda (with cameos by her twin brother Oliver) about their fave, or at least most watched movie! Parents around the world can relate.

We LOVE Mr. Gborie. If you've never seen David Gborie do stand-up, we just don't know what you're doing. Likewise, if you've never seen Shaft or Foxy Brown, or Super Fly, or any number of Blacksploitation movies, you gotta get on that , like, yesterday.

Join us as we talk to David about his love of the genre, about how you to can have a race catharsis, and how when it comes down to it, ain't nobody better than Pam Grier.

All we really want to do is list Dennis Hopper from Blue Velvet quotes in this summary. Unfortunately, the FCC might come after us even though they have no jurisdiction over podcasts. Such is the insane world of David Lynch. A seemingly upstanding citizen embroiled in a world of drugs, sex, gun play, violence, profanity and blatant lip syncing? You better believe it's Lynch. Join us as we talk to filmmaker Joseph Kolean about one of his favorite directors, and about how to be a director in 2015 is to be influenced by Lynch. There's no avoiding it. It's happening
