Popmatic Podcast for March 30, 2016: Woo! College!

By , March 30, 2016

I Am Charlotte Simmons by Tom WolfeMarch Madness is reaching peak hysteria. The more bookish among us know basketball teams often have colleges attached to them so on this show—college! Sarah joins us. I don’t think she mentions Butler once. Part of me admires her restraint. Another part of me fears she has been traumatized by their recent loss. Somehow a fruit themed pun contest breaks out. All this and more on this week’s episode of the Popmatic Podcast.

Popmatic Podcast for March 23, 2016: Super Buckley vs. Bat Vidal

By , March 23, 2016

DC Marvel Crossover Classics IIBatman v Superman is coming out so on this show we talk about rivalries. Jeremy and Mike do there best to explain to me how Batman and Superman could be rivals, but I’m not sure if I get it. I am greatly disappointed there was no mention of Holmes and Moriarty. Things get better later in the show when we learn even weather can be sexy. It sounds like this episode was recorded in a closet!
