Who Shot Ya?

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood

Lots of feelings on this show! It's our 100th episode, we say goodbye to our beloved April Wolfe, and we're talking about the controversial new Quentin Tarantino film Once Upon a Time In Hollywood. Plus, we get a phone call from a mystery guest (it's Inkoo Kang). Alonso serenades April with his own version of 'Sometimes It Snows In April.' You get to hear Ify flip out in real time at the realization that he's going to miss the Hobbs & Shaw episode next week. And, as always, staff picks.

In news, Criterion releases the ultimate Godzilla collection, SAG-AFTRA hires an on-set "intimacy coordinator," and The Black List launches The Latinx List.

Staff Picks:

April - The Nightingale
Alonso - Ishiro Honda: A Life in Film, from Godzilla to Kurosawa
Drea - American Honey
Ify - Shin Godzilla and Godzilla (1998)

With Ify Nwadiwe, April Wolfe, Alonso Duralde, and Drea Clark.

Pop Rocket
Guests: 
Guinevere Turner

This is the first of our three final episodes, and we’re joined by screenwriter Guinevere Turner (American Psycho,Go Fish) whose latest film Charlie Says just came out today, May 10th. As “budding cult-ologist” MagWaps notes, “if you think you’ve heard everything on the Mansons, trust me, this movie takes a different view.”

Having grown up in a cult, Guinevere was able to draw from her experiences and insight to tell the story from the point of view of the women who were targeted and groomed by Manson, and killed for him. It’s a fascinating discussion.

Plus, the panel convened once again to vote on another Pop Rocket Seal of Approval. The final three nominees were Sandra Oh, Toni Collette and Catherine O’Hara.

There are two more Pop Rocket episodes to go in its nearly five-year run. If you’d like to share with the panelists what this show meant to you, or tell them about your favorite episodes, you can call Guy’s mom and leave a message at: (530) 237-4108

You can also email poprocketpodcast@gmail.com a recording of your message made with your phone’s voice memo app.
