Susan Orlean is a staff writer for the New Yorker and the author of books like The Orchid Thief.

Paul F. Tompkins is a comedian whose voice you’ll recognize as the character Mr. Peanutbutter on Bojack Horseman.

In this episode, we learn about why Paul can’t stop spoiling upcoming episodes of Bojack Horseman for his wife, and why he should be considered the king of coining new catchphrases. And we’ll also learn which animals in Susan’s life have been named after characters from Bojack (hint: not horses), and why it’s important to learn the title of an author’s book before interviewing her in a public forum. Plus, Susan explains more about her upcoming book and Paul discusses what makes him love podcasting so much.

We're heading straight to Harlem for this special Luke Cage edition of Inside Pop. We've seen the second season of Marvel's Luke Cage and we're bringing you an exclusive preview of the first two episodes. We'll also provide some fascinating behind the scenes info about the show's music and production crew and theorize why vocal fans of the first season may have inspired the more volatile Season 2 Luke Cage. Plus, we question why we're anti-shipping Mariah and Shades.

Then, Amita reviews the new documentary, Won't You Be My Neighbor, about legendary children's TV host Fred Rogers.

Plus, we have a brand new Big Sell that tackles one of the ugliest, and sadly most prevalent problems in Hollywood.

We have an embarrassment of pop culture riches this week!

First up, Amita provides a spoiler free review of the box office record breaking Deadpool 2. Sean hasn't seen the film yet, but it doesn't stop him from asking deep probing questions (you guessed it - Josh Brolin's physique is a point of discussion!).

Then, Sean and Amita discuss Janet Jackson's appearance at the Billboard Music Awards. They rate her red carpet look and give what may be considered a surprisingly objective review of her performance.

The Pop Insiders also discuss their time at the two-day pop culture celebration in New York City known as Vulture Festival. They share the inside info they heard at panels featuring the stars of RuPaul's Drag Race, Younger, Queer Eye and Queen Sugar.

And in The Big Sell, Sean rates Madison McFerrin's song, "Insane," and sells a new cover song by the one and only Angelique Kidjo.

Plus - a surprise announcement about an appearance the Pop Insiders are making this summer!

This week, we're talking about the recent announcement of TV cancellations and renewals- which shows were chopped (Quantico, Rise) and which ones were surprisingly revived by another network (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Last Man Standing?!) and the one show that Sean may just start a Twitter campaign to save.

Then, we discuss the two unique songs that Andre 3000 recently released that are dedicated to his late mother and father and what we think of his new sound.

And Sean shares his experience at a recent Florence + The Machine concert.

Plus, Amita reviews and rates last week's Big Sell, the Japanese Anime series on Netflix, Aggretsuko and sells Sean a new R&B acapella artist, Madison McFerrin.
