00:0000:00

It's a big week for news around these parts, and Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast is here to cover as much of it as we can.  Things kick off by saying goodbye to Stan Lee, recounting what he meant to the world at large and to us in particular.  Then we peruse the most recent Netflix releases like "She-Ra" and an off-kilter Western from the Coen Brothers, catch up on some of our favorite superhero shows and prepare for this year's upcoming Poobah Awards by watching as many recent movies as possible.  All that and a Perlmutter story about bribing dirty cops makes for one heckuva show.  Excelsior!
