This week, the Pop Rocket gang gives out pop culture/life/romantic advice to listeners who sent in questions! We learn what movie and dish pairs well with getting to third base, how to deal with breakups, and why DVR privileges should never be abused. Plus, we get a special question from a very lovely Rocketeer with a new lease on life. Get the tissues ready, it gets a little emotional. Wynter finds the last great Vine song, Margaret tells us about her alter OK Cupid ego, Oliver tells us how he deals with his daughter’s creative goals, and Guy explains how writing mean Yelp reviews can help with stress.

With Guy Branum, Wynter Mitchell, Oliver Wang and Margaret Wappler.

That’s My Jam:

Margaret Wappler - LA Priest - Oino
Oliver Wang - Slum Village – We Be Dem (T. Version)
Wynter Mitchell - Denzel Curry - Ultimate

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.
