Guy, Wynter, Oliver, and Margaret talk about all things Florida. Also, producer Christian gets on mic to discuss E3 and VR! He’s the coolest. Margaret nerds out over Game of Thrones, Wynter has some things to say about The Neon Demon, Guy finds a summer jam he loves, and Oliver chats about Henry Stone’s impact on the Florida music scene.

 

You guys, the search for the Song of the Summer is still on, so look for the official thread on the Pop Rocket Facebook group and send in your submission!

Guy, Wynter, and Margaret are joined by special guests Ricky Carmona and Corin Tucker for our first ever live show! This week's topic, summer camp and campy camp movies. Pop culture trivia! Xanadu! Movie and music advice! All that and more on this special episode of Pop Rocket!!

With Guy Branum, Wynter Mitchell, Margaret Wappler, Ricky Carmona, and Corin Tucker

And special thanks to Nick White for his help during the live recording.

 

NOTE #1: This is a live show, so forgive the audio issues. We tried to clean it up as best as we can, but we're not miracle workers. 

 

NOTE #2: After we taped this episode, someone pointed out to us that Sleepaway Camp is a somewhat transphobic movie. We didn't know that when we taped, so bear that in mind if you plan on checking it out.

It’s our 75th episode! To celebrate, the gang talks 1975 (and some 1974…and 1976) in pop culture. They talk JAWS, Farrah Fawcett, and everything in between! Oliver finally talks about something that isn’t the Golden State Warriors, Guy discusses the beauty of 8-tracks, Wynter is in love with Joan Crawford’s autobiography, and Margaret is all about the newest season of UnReal.
