Pop! Pop! Ep. 11 – Tom Hardy as Wolverine?

This week on Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast!  The LA Nerd and Taylor welcome back their friend David Bornstein to talk about a hefty weeks worth of Nerd News.

They riff about Eli Roth’s new gory flick Green Inferno, reminisce about their childhood with Jimmy Fallon and his 20th Anniversary Good Burger sketch, cry over the fact that InBev has bought out LA’s local Golden Road Brewery and debate whether or not Tom Hardy could be the new Wolverine – Huge Jacked-Man (Hugh Jackman) seems to think so! Find out what we think and MORE  on this week’s episode of Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast!
