This week, Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler and Karen Tongson are declaring their independence from screens, push notifications and batteries. That’s right, it’s all about the pop culture that you’ll still be able to experience after the grid goes down.

Margaret is all about The Moment app which displays just how much time you spend on your phone every day, which she hopes will help keep her phone out of her motherhood. Karen is all about LeBron James being signed to the LA Lakers and everyone celebrating something good finally happening for the Lakers. Guy is all about the Amazon Prime movieThe Little Hours which features plenty of effective comedy and just the right amount of Aubrey Plaza.

The group will take an extensive look at modern media that doesn’t require a screen; everything from drawing, tarot cards, The Joy of Cooking, the card game Set and so much more

The Pop Rocket 2018 Summer Book Club is a go! We’re reading Crazy Rich Asians. Join the Facebook group and get in on the conversation.

With Karen Tongson, Guy Branum and Margaret Wappler.

That’s My Jam:

Margaret - My Bathroom Is a Private Kind of Place.

Karen - 10,000 Maniacs - These Are Days

Guy - Betty Who - Taste.

Everything's Coming Up Simpsons Ep. 144: The Critic w/ Al Jean

Al Jean

We're doing something a little different this week! Al Jean – yes, that AL JEAN – swings by the Max Fun studios to discuss the short-lived cult classic series "The Critic."  In 1994, Al co-created the series alongside Mike Reiss. The animated show follows the life of film critic Jay Sherman, voiced Jon Lovitz. He'll break it down for us, including: why the show was originally planned to be a live action sitcom, how the series came to be, what it was like to work with Lovitz, and why the premise of the show would only work in the 90's.  Plus, he'll also sprinkle in some Simpsons trivia throughout our conversation, and discuss how he thinks "The Simpsons" series might end. Trust us, this episode doesn't stink!
