Happy Holidays, everyone! Wynter and Karen are joined by special guest panelists Tre’Vell Anderson (Director of Culture and Entertainment at Out Magazine) and 'Who Shot Ya?'s' Alonso Duralde to create the ultimate holiday playlist. Each panelist created a top ten list of their favorite holiday songs, out of which they’d select twenty for inclusion in the official Pop Rocket Holiday Playlist. Well, that was the plan, anyway. In practice, when faced with making the tough choices, they flopped. Whose version of "Sleigh Ride" should be on the playlist: Andy Williams’s, Ella Fitzgerald’s or TLC’s? Spoiler alert: They couldn’t decide.

Plus, the panelists describe their holiday family traditions, and if you’ve ever been curious what the most popular Philippine Christmas song is, resident scholar Karen Tongson reveals the answer.

From Ella Fitzgerald to Donny Hathaway, from the Morehouse Glee Club to Quad City DJs, the variety of musical stylings in this episode will get your feet tappin'.

All Abouts

For the last All Abouts of the year, each panelist picked one thing in 2018, that they could watch, listen to, read, or consume, OVER & OVER again.

Alonso is all about the Amber Ruffin segment on Late Night With Seth Meyers - 'Amber Says Why'

Karen is still all about the series finale of The Americans.

Tre’Vell is awed by EVERYTHING about Cardi B, but especially her recent appearance with James Corden in Carpool Karaoke.

Wynter can’t stop watching Mission Impossible: Fallout.

That's My Jam

For this week’s jams, each panelist picked a song that best summed up the year that was 2018.

Karen: Sound of Music Soundtrack - So Long, Farewell
Tre’vell: Fantasia - Lose to Win
Alonso: Lizzo - Good as Hell
Wynter: Drake - Nice for What

The Spy Who Dumped Me

This is truly a clash of the titans. Drea Clark and Inkoo Kang are featured in the SAME EPISODE! That's right, it's an action packed show where the crew is discussing The Spy Who Dumped Me. Inkoo grills Ricky by asking him, "Why do you hate women?" (She's joking, fyi). Drea cements her status as the show's "wacky neighbor." April can't stop listening to The Tammy's Egyptian Shumba. And Ricky stans for his main man Eddie Murphy. Plus, the gang attempts to name their top 5 comic duos of all time. And as always, staff picks.

In news, Jean-Luc Picard is back, Crazy Rich Asians turns Netflix down, and Steven Seagal is appointed a "Special Reperesentative" of Russian Foreign Ministry.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - Spy
April - Bunny Lake Is Missing
Drea - Skate Kitchen
Inkoo - 1). Crazy Rich Asians 2). McQueen

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!

Next week we're discussing BlacKkKlansman

With Inkoo Kang, April Wolfe, Drea Clark, and Ricky Carmona.
