After that massive episode #100, Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast is back doing what we do best, bringing you news and reviews for as much pop culture as we can possibly squeeze out of a week.  Free Comic Book Day is almost here again, and we preview a lot of the titles that will be available at your friendly neighborhood comic shop this weekend.  Plus, Cliff reports on scaling the berm to check out the Star Wars construction at Disney, we highlight the new "Lost in Space," talk "A Quiet Place" and "Ready Player One" and are actually pretty chill about "Westworld" coming back.
