Pop Culture Confessions is a podcast about revealing (and atoning for) our greatest movie sins-by-omission. Your three hosts are ready to bare their souls and fix their cultural blind spots for your entertainment. Please be gentle.
||ExplicitEpisode 21 - Wayne's World||This week we're time traveling back to the 90's with a journey to Wayne's World, which Hannah confessed she's never seen. Is it still funny?

||ExplicitEpisode 17 - Halloween||- It's getting a little spooky in the No Shame Zone this week. Amanda and Hannah are watching Halloween for the first time... will the grandfather of all slasher movies be enough to scare these jaded Millennials? - -||10/16/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 16 - Shaun Of The Dead||We're kicking off Spookytober with Shaun of the Dead, which Ryan has been refusing to watch in order to annoy one of his friends.

||ExplicitEpisode 13 - Caddyshack||- - - - - - - - As part of our ongoing quest to ruin your childhood memories, this week we're ripping apart Caddyshack! The movie isn't funny, but at least it's super problematic, so it's got that going for it, which is nice. - -||9/18/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||ExplicitEpisode 08 - Jaws||This week we dive into a movie that both Ryan and Hannah have never seen: Jaws! Did they hate it? Will they ever go back in the ocean? Does this episode reveal all or just some of Amanda's deepest fears? What IS the best way to kick a shark's ass?||8/14/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 07 - There's Something About Mary||The dream of the 90's is alive in this week's episode!

||ExplicitEpisode 06 - The Shining||On this week's episode, Amanda admits that she's never seen The Shining... but strangely feels like she's always been watching it? That's odd.

||ExplicitEpisode 05 - The Little Mermaid||- This week we're deconstructing The Little Mermaid, which Ryan had never seen and which Hannah and Amanda can't seem to stop singing songs from. BE WARNED: we earned our explicit tag on this one. - -||7/24/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||ExplicitEpisode 02 - The Notebook||In Episode 2, Ryan admits that he's never seen The Notebook. After he's forced to sit through it, we debate the big stuff: is Allie annoying? (Yes.) Is Noah a jerk? (Also yes.) Is Lon the best dude ever? (Absolutely yes.)||7/3/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||ExplicitEpisode 0 - Introduction||Pop culture what now? We’ve all been there: a friend makes a reference to their favorite movie, and you’re forced to admit… “I’ve never seen it.” “WHAT???” “I know! I just never got around to it. I’m gonna watch it, I swear.”||6/25/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
This has got to be one of the most interesting and fun podcasts I’ve ever listened to. Well edited, great interaction, and I will definitely keep listening! GREAT JOB!!!!!!
Great new show
Greatly enjoyed listening to the first episode of this new podcast. I heard so many things about the movie that I hadn’t thought of or noticed, I now have to go and rewatch it 😀
Awesome job, keep it up
Much Needed Levity
This is a fun and enjoyable podcast that addresses the links we have in our culture primarily based on common interests in visual media! I know so many conversations at work and with friends that have centered around this podcast's theme, but these good folks do a wonderful job of fleshing it out to produce something fun, enjoyable and ORIGINAL. Thanks so much and keep up the good work!
Oh and they are woke AF, so that's a plus ;-).
