When she was 17, Dame Angela Lansbury quit her job at a department store to take a part in a movie, as 17-year-olds are wont to do. She played a young maid to Ingrid Bergman’s character in Gaslight, a film that garnered seven Oscar nominations and two wins, including one for Best Actress for Bergman. It’s the typical tale of a young actress trying to make it big and having to struggle, role after role after role after role, to hold her own on screen with the most celebrated actors in the world, on Oscar-winning film after Oscar-winning film.

She’s now 93 years old and has been in the business for nearly eight decades, dominating the big screen, the small screen and the stage.

For this episode of Pop Rocket, we felt it important to give Dame Lansbury’s career a discussion worthy of the legend that she is, and we couldn’t do it by ourselves. We needed to bring in the biggest Fangelas we could find outside of her immediate family: April Wolfe and S.A. Smythe, two individuals that get positively giddy noting which Murder She Wrote episodes comment on on colonialism and the prison industrial complex.

You guys, this is such a great episode, and that’s not even including everyone’s All Abouts!

It's about to get real emotional and philosophical up in here as these two water signs jump into it. In the guest cohost spot from the MASkulinity Podcast we have Samantha Nzessi. Remember that governor who you thought was racist well it turns out his wife just might have him beat with her own flavor of racism. We discuss what is truth these days, do we care about facts- which leads us into a conversation about Jussie Smulllet- what the fuck happened!? Finding Neverland documentary, yikes, is this the end to Michael Jackson? We canceled R. Kelly after the 'Surviving R. Kelly' doc, are we willing to do the same to the King of Pop? First Black Oscar winner Hattie McDonald was a controversial figure in her time and still to this day. James dives into the history of this controversial figure, her history, and who she really was. You think you know... but you don't know! Is Steve Harvey yucking Monique's yum. Samantha takes us on a tour in a conversation around her podcasts main premise of masculinity. What is masculinity in our culture? What does it mean to be a man? How did we get to Trump? Where do we go with dealing with the culture of masculinity? Plus James saw Green Book- and he has notes- Samantha did not see it- and still has notes... just who was this fantasy reconstructing of racism for?

Jimmy Carter Always Stealing This Show! (Wedding Cakes, Supreme Court, Gentrification, BBQ Becky, Jogger Joe)

Did you know that June is African American Music Appreciation Month?! Well now you do! The Wonder Twins try with all their might to talk about this, but Jimmy Carter just keeps showing up to steal the show! James needs tips on how to leave a date early and Nnekay has dubbed herself the Date Referee giving tips and calling it when the gig is up! Should James trust a "walk up dentist?" Nnekay says no and tells a tale of caution. In James' Korner he addresses the Supreme Court ruling in favor for Jack Phillips- who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. What does this mean for the future, what has happened in the past, and how we can stay woke to discrimination with love and respect. Inspired by the recent Oakland, Ca events involving BBQ Becky and Jogger Joe, Nnekay talks gentrification- what and what not to do.

Kells blows the house down on this joint. Looks like there's a new king of retro-soul.
