Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast #51


We haven't covered any news for a couple of weeks, so there is plenty to dig into in this episode of Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast.  (And we have to do it all a man down, as a Mad Libs-style ransom note was left for the missing Cliff!)  Be sure and stay tuned to the whole thing, because we also draw the name of the winner of a stylish new Ka-Pow t-shirt in a completely random spot, and save all the spoilers for the star-studded new streaming film "The Discovery" until the very end.  And away we go!
