Inside Pop

It's all about our two favorite places on this week's episode; New York City and...Westeros!

We recap the Game of Thrones season seven finale, “The Dragon and the Wolf,” and celebrate the Stark Siblings' team work, analyze the Kings Landing Meet-Up Royale and question the ramifications of Jon and Dany's union (and when we say 'union' we mean they SMASHED!) We also tell you where we think this season ranks compared to others and let you know how long you'll have to wait for the 8th and final season of this epic series.

We also talk about the jam packed week of pop culture consumption we experienced in our hometown of NYC (the greatest city in the world – just ask the Schuyler Sisters!). Our 7 days of being out and about include:

AfroPunk - where we saw live performances from Solange, Sampha, Soul II Soul, Raphael Saddiq, Michael Kiwanuka, Macy Gray, Nao, Blitz the Ambassador and hung out with hundreds of people representing Black Girl Magic and Black Boy Joy!
Dave Chappelle & Solange at the iconic Radio City Music Hall.
An exclusive screening of the new doc, A Suitable Girl, that explores arranged marriages in India.
Fellow Max Fun podcasters The Greatest Generation's live Show (and after the live show there was the after party!).
Kendrick Lamar live!
And Amita Big Sells Sean something to help him - and you - deal with Game of Thrones withdrawal.

Plus - we review the new single and music video, "Sky Walker," by singer, songwriter and mutual object of Pop Insiders' affection- Miguel.

Chris Tucker Returns to the Stage, Launches Stand-Up Tour

| 0 comments

The folks who attended this year's Wild 94.9 Comedy Jam on August 13th are some of the luckiest comedy fans ever.

Not only did they get to witness Chris Tucker's return to stand-up, but also a performance by the brilliant and long-absent Dave Chappelle.

I am seriously jealous.

Thankfully, if you are a devoted Chris Tucker fan, you will have another opportunity to see him. This week, Tucker launched an eighteen-city stand-up tour that will run until mid-November. You can find the full schedule and ticket info here. He is appearing in Phoenix tonight.

And while you are waiting for Tucker to arrive in your town, check out this interview he did with The New York Times about his career path and his decision to return to the stage.

If you can get past the inane jokes that the DJs make, Dave Chappelle has some interesting things to say in this, his first radio interview in years.

So, uhm, if you don't like rape jokes, this ain't for you.

But it's nice to see Chappelle on stage being funny.
