e247. 36-ish Things You Missed in 2022

Another year is in the books. 2022 has come and gone. Welcome to 2023. But, there’s one last piece of business to finish from yesteryear. Welcome to the annual VoxPopcast Year in Review show. If you’re new to our year in review, we don’t really do a best of show… we did 52 episodes last…

Call For Comments: Is AI art or ‘theft’? Yes and No… probably…

From Mav: So, like a lot of other people I used the Lensa app to make myself a collection of random avatars last weekend. Why? Because all of my friends were doing it and if they were all going to jump off a cliff I would too. And yeah, that sounds silly, but honestly, that’s…

e243. What’s in a Name? (or Several)

Sometimes we come up with an episode idea that we just completely mean to be filler. We have no real agenda and not as much research as normal, but we need to fill a week before a much more complicated show and so we just decide “lets have a discussion topic and see how it…

Call For Comments: Wakanda Forever and Replacing Deceased Actors

From Mav: So, I saw Black Panther: Wakanda Forever last week and without spoilers, it was basically everything I thought it would be. I enjoyed it a lot. Pretty much from the moment they announced they were still going to make the film, without recasting Chadwick Boseman, it was pretty clear that they were going…

e236. Is The Rocky Horror Picture Show a Bad Movie?

If you’ve been following the show the last several weeks then you know we’ve started a series where we have been looking at some of our favorite controversial movies and trying to convince you of the value of them as great films. It’s also October, so we wanted to get some Halloween content in for…

Call For Comments: Do We Need To Talk About Kanye?

From Mav: A few days ago, friend of the show (and host of the Handsome Genius Club Radio Show) Kingdom James texted me asking if I wanted to do a crossover episode where we talk about Kanye West’s recent nonsense. So I sat down to write it, but wasn’t feeling quite inspired, so I figured…

Call For Comments: Then Something Went Wrong

From Wayne: My first exposure to The Rocky Horror Picture Show was back around 1980 or so. I was in college and working as a volunteer teaching assistant for the secondary gifted program in my incredibly rural home county. One of the students had a copy of the Official Rocky Horror Picture Show Movie Novel…

e233. Is Under the Cherry Moon a bad movie?

Have you ever had a favorite movie, that you’ve loved since childhood and then all of a sudden as an adult you discover that other people don’t like that movie? In fact, it seems MOST people don’t like that movie. And then you question yourself. Is the movie any good? Have you been deluding yourself…

e232. Paige v. Ariana: The Right to be Sexy on the Internet

A couple weeks ago, a story broke about a young woman named Paige Niemann turning 18 years old and starting an OnlyFans account. By all rights this shouldn’t be notable to our show at all. Sometimes models have OnlyFans accounts. However, Paige is notable because she has made a name for herself the last few…

CFC: Will the Real Ariana Grande please stand up?

One of these people is Ariana Grande. The other is cosplayer Paige Niemann. Which is which? From Mav: The nice thing about having your own pop culture podcast is that sometimes something happens and you’re like “what the actual fuck” and you just want to be given the opportunity to work things out? Well, I…
