Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast #74

18Oct

It's a big week for us here at Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast.  The return of the CW lineup of television shows means more "Riverdale" to lose our minds over, a trailer for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" gives us plenty to chew on and a modern sci-fi masterpiece in "Blade Runner 2049" keeps us thinking about it even a week later.  So tune in for our distinctive mix of in-depth analysis and stream-of-consciousness seat-of-our-pants faking-it-as-we-go content!
