We really love Orphan Black, and we think more people should watch it. We’ve kept spoilers to a minimum (early season one only). Jeff and I are joined this week by our special guest panelist, Taryn Cheal, and we spend the first segment singing the praises of the show, from its deft world-building techniques, to engaging procedural elements, to making very believable clone interactions on a small(er) television budget.

We roundly agree that Tatiana Maslany deserves all the awards, including special ones that we create for her.

We know the movie’s been out for a while, but […]

Lauren is our Pop Cult Leader this week, and she takes Jeff through what the show is, why we should watch it, […]
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 […]
Welcome to our new podcast, the Pop Cult Podcast—you may notice that in the actual podcast we called it “The Pop Cult Leaders”. We already changed the name, because it’s a pilot and stuff changes. Cool? Cool. In this pilot episode, we have Pop Cult Leader Lauren (me) spreading the word about my passion for […]
