This week Hal and Danielle are joined by Travis McElroy! He’s one-third of podcasting’s most famous brotherhood as the middlest brother on My Brother, My Brother and Me and The Adventure Zone.

Travis joins us to talk about his experience as a lapsed fan of wrestling and as a fan of the Netflix series GLOW. With season 3 now available to stream, what did everyone think? Was it as strong as the previous seasons? And how much longer should the show continue?

Plus, Lindsey joins us to discuss the news of NXT officially moving to primetime on Wednesdays at the same time as AEW. With the news of Vince McMahon supposedly taking on a larger role in producing the show, how hopeful are we that the brand will maintain the same level of quality that it’s had for the past five years?

All of that… and we’ll even have some fun about the team names of the XFL.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford, Lindsey Kelk and Travis McElroy.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

This week, Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler and Karen Tongson discuss HBO’s Sharp Objects. It’s based on the Gillian Flynn Novel of the same name and is about a woman, Camille Preaker, played by Amy Adams, who returns to her childhood home to combat her personal demons and look into a number of unsolved murders.

Margaret is all about Won't You Be My Neighbor?, the Fred Rogers biopic that’s guaranteed to conjure up feelings of love and kindness even in this divisive time. Karen is all about the second season of the Netflix series GLOW, especially the eighth episode, which may be the show’s crowning achievement. Guy is all about the video game Fobia on Steam, which finally gave him the type of gaming that he can embrace.

The group will give their thoughts on the HBO series Sharp Objects, including why Amy Adams works so well playing a real person. They also discuss what makes the HBO television production model work so well, and why that might change in the future. Plus, they’ll introduce some new elements to the podcast: The Wappler Test and the Pop Rocket seal of approval.

The Pop Rocket 2018 Summer Book Club is a go! We’re reading Crazy Rich Asians. Join the Facebook group and get in on the conversation.

With Karen Tongson, Guy Branum and Margaret Wappler.

**This episode contains spoilers**

This week Guy, Margaret, and Wynter talk about The Big Sick, the new romantic comedy from Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani which tells the story of how they met and fell in love. Because because the film is based in tragedy, with Emily falling into a coma in the middle of the film, some people are hesitant to call it a romantic comedy. But not our panel! They discuss how the usual tropes of a romantic comedy get flipped around, and how those changes allow for a more candid and interesting story. They also discuss why brown men falling for white women on screen is problematic, but maybe not in the case of The Big Sick.Guy talks about why he's all about this season of Big Brother, and Wynter tells us why we should forget about all of the other iterations of Peter Parker and go see the Tom Holland led Spider-Man: Homecoming. Plus, the "Song of the Summer" thread is live in the Facebook group and the panelists aren't too happy with the nominations.
