Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast is back for another trip around the television dial, catching up on tons and tons of TV in order to give you a sense of what you should be watching (like "Stranger Things," "Riverdale" and a new gem from Amy Sedaris) and what you can skip (sorry "Ghosted" and "The Mist," maybe in reruns!).  We also run down some of the recent happenings in comics, with overviews of many of the newest DC and Marvel offerings.  So strap on your Binge Racing helmet, pop in your earbuds and geek out with us!
