Ep. 2 – Oscars 2016

Oscars 2016

This week we’re talking all things Oscar, but before we get into that, we’d love it if you subscribed to our Podcast on iTunes! For our Oscars special, Jeffrey Bryan is our Pop Cult Leader, and he takes us through this year’s nominees, the lack of diversity among the nominees (and what the Academy is doing to address the problem), and we take a deeper dive at the writing categories.

We close out with all of Jeff’s picks for the major categories. Also, Lauren can’t seem to let go of how freaking good Mad Max: Fury Road was. Of course, the GIF we discussed totally exists:

At the end of our show, we discuss whose pop culture Kool-Aid we’re drinking this week. Jeff recognizes that this is just Bey’s world, and that we are all lucky to be living in it. Check out the full link roundup we did about Queen B last week for more to drink in. 

Lauren’s been drinking in so much Sondheim-flavoured Kool-Aid this week, and thinks you should check out the HBO documentary Six By Sondheim if you are just getting into it. Of course, you can also just put this, this, this, this, and this on repeat.

LIke, you really can't. Oscars 2016
Like, you really can’t.

Check back on March 3rd for our next episode, all about RuPaul’s Drag Race.
