Great topics about pop culture from NPR.
For someone who doesn't have a chance to listen to NPR all the time, this podcast gives one a taste of what pop culture related stories/reports where broadcast on NPR that week. Very enjoyable.
Oh, Oh, Oh, Give Me More!
This is possibly one of my favorite podcats because it's got a lot of variety but it's still about one topic. You'll hear things about movies, music, books, tv, and lots of other great stuff that just happens to fit into the "pop" category.
You are the best! I need more!
