It’s another fun-filled Pop Rocket. This week, special guest Chris Schleicher is all about the Best Documentary Short Heaven Is a Traffic Jam on the 405; Margaret Wappler is all up in season three of Unreal; Karen Tongson wanted to be about Unreal, but Wappler stole her thunder so Karen tells us about the new show Good Girls, and Guy Branum is all about the Great White Way, fresh off his trip to New York with his niece.
Then the gang delve into Oscar talk, sharing tips on how to guess the most wins on the ballot, how they each watched the awards show and all the hot takes they have. There’s just the right balance of reverence and cattiness.
With Karen Tongson, Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler and Chris Schleicher.
That’s My Jam:
Margaret Wappler – Sufjan Stevens – Visions of Gideon
Karen Tongson – Jackson Brown – Somebody’s Baby
Guy Branum – from Don’t Even Know It – Everybody’s Talking About Jamie

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to our Spotify playlists.
