Pop! Pop! Ep. 19 – Oscars So White… But Are They?

Another week, another Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast! and another wacky discussion with the LA Nerd and Taylor!

Some dumb ass is starting a petition to make Deadpool PG-13… Over every nerd’s dead body, lady! The Guardians might be coming face to face with a planet… that has a face in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2; the guys are sad to report on another death in pop culture this week as everyone’s favorite Harry Potter villain (?) Alan Rickman has passed away at 69; much squee is to be had over the first official Suicide Squad trailer and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and last but not least the guys tackle the subject of racism with this year’s ridiculous Oscars drama of #OscarsSoWhite… but are they!?
