Pop! Pop! Ep.7 – The Podcast Awakens

Disney’s annual D23 Expo was last Saturday and on this episode of Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast the LA Nerd and Taylor break it down!  Spoilers: there’s a shit ton of Star Wars news!

Were you hoping that Michael Shannon would be in Batman Five Superman even though Zod died?  Were youalso hoping that he’d be part dolphin?  Well you’re in luck! Tune in to find out what the hell that means…  Other high points are us trash talking Ronda Rousey’s acting skills (please don’t kill us), trash talking Colin Trevorrow’s directing skills (not afraid of you, Colin), getting wasted at Disneyland’s future Star Wars theme park and how the #1 poster artist of all time says that The Force Awakens is the best Star Wars movie ever made!
All of this AND MORE on Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast!
