Throwing Shade's Bryan Safi and Erin Gibson take over Pop Rocket as part of MaxFun's #GreatSwitcheroo.

With Bryan Safi, Erin Gibson, Drew Droege and Jessica Jardine.

Every week we start the show by taking a question from a listener about our own pop culture tastes. This week: What piece of culture (movie, song, TV show) do you most find yourself introducing new people to?
Bryan Safi - Karina Longworth's You Must Remember This podcast. Especially the series of episodes about Charles Manson's Hollywood.
Erin Gibson - Brock O'Hurn on Instagram
Drew Droege - The documentary Finders Keeper
Jessica Jardine - The Russ Meyer / Roger Ebert movie Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
Thanks to Jamie Tyler in the Pop Rocket Facebook group for that question.

That’s My Jam:
Bryan Safi - Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli performing He's Got the Whole World In His Hands
Erin Gibson - Strange Things Happen Everyday by Sister Rosetta Tharpe
Drew Droege - Let's All Chant by The Michael Zager Band
Jessica Jardine - How Deep Is Your Love by Calvin Harris and The Disciples

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