On this week’s episode of Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast! The LA Nerd and Taylor welcome their good friend Dayeanne Hutton (Emma Approved) into the studio and the show turns into Pun! Pun! the Pun-Culture Podcast! Puns run rampant as the gang talks about Alvin & the Chipmunks taking on Star Wars; how much money Huge-Jacked-Man and Pan lost in theaters; why Fox is not giving the Fantastic 4 rights back to Marvel; Vin Diesel slaying dragons in a possible D&D movie; and how Wes Anderson must love dogs because his next film is about dogs!

They also talk about Dayeanne’s various adventures (like a dude getting one of her characters tattooed on his arm!) and projects including Hammer of the Witches, playing at Loft Ensemble now through November 1st. Information & tickets can be found at Loftensemble.org.

All of this and so much more on this week’s Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast!
