Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast #64


With Cliff out on an important assignment, we recruit the Mayor, Jared Lowe, to step up and fill his seat, while Michael creates a new alter ego pretty much on the spot.  Jordan and Seth both happened to see the movie "Passengers," and feel the need to rake it over the coals a bit.  We've also got a lot of news, including the return of "Rick and Morty," some parting thoughts about "@Midnight," controversy in the comic book world and new trailers for "Justice League" and "Ready Player One."  So remember to #MakeMineKapow, because we are the Pop-Cultured Podcast that keeps you on the ledge of your chair!
