This week on Pop Rocket, comedian, writer and performer Louis Virtel sits in for Guy while he is away. Louis and the gang discuss 9/11 and the immediate and long term impacts it had on pop culture. Have we yet to chronicle 9/11 in a meaningful way? How has new consumption changed since 2001?
Plus, Wynter discusses the new season of American Horror Story, Karen is rewatching The L-Word, Louis can’t stop watching British game shows, and Alonso wants to let us all know that Episodes is still on and still pretty great.
