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.

Holy moly, guys! What a show! We talked to comedians Chris Garcia, Kenny DeForest, Eliza Skinner and Caitlin Gill about their favorite TV show characters and BOY did they have some answers! Jump in for some incredible diatribes about the merits of some fantastic and often overlooked characters!

Thanks to High Plains Comedy Fest for having us back 4 yeas in a row, and thanks to our pals at Hi Dive for always showing us a good time!

We were so excited to welcome Kentucky's own comedian James Fritz to the show to talk Alt Country. Even now that he lives in L.A., Fritz has a place in his heart for Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown, Wilco, Drive-By Truckers, Son Volt, Neko Case, Gillian Welch and The Jayhawks. Not to mention the godfather of them all, Graham Parsons.

Join us as we chat and reminisce and slag off Ryan Adams.

We were busted flat in Baton Rouge when we came upon poet Brian Foley. After many drinks, we had a chat about one of his favorite people, Kris Kristofferson. Join us as we discuss this poet, picker, prophet, pusher, pilgrim and preacher. The walking contradiction himself.

We dare you to try to get "Wannabe" and "Say You'll Be There" out of your head after this episode. Join us as we chat with GUYS WE'VE F**KED podcast's Corinne Fisher about her life-long obsession with the Spice Girls. Did we get our lives spiced up a little bit by Scary, Ginger, Baby, Sporty and Posh? Of course we did. Girl Power, y'all!

We're back! Together! Kevin and Taylor! Taking on the pop cultural world one subject at a time! Today we have radio legend Bret Saunders of the KBCO Morning Show! Anybody who has lived in Colorado over the past 20-odd years knows Bret's voice, but did you know he also writes a jazz column for the Denver Post. How about that!?

We talk to him about his love of comedy auteur Albert Brooks. We focus on Mr. Brook's first three "punk rock" movies, REAL LIFE, MODERN LOVE and LOST IN AMERICA, but really, we span the gamut. Join us! And then watch all these movies on Netflix!
