Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast #80


Join us for a completely "Riverdale"-free Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast!  That's right, by not talking about our favorite show for an ENTIRE episode, it frees up plenty of time for the four of us - and returning guest, the Mayor Jared Lowe - to share our thoughts on the impact of all these Hollywood scandals, a brand new "Star Wars" trilogy, more on "Stranger Things 2," all those other CW shows and the earth-shaking defection of Brian Michael Bendis from Marvel to DC Comics.  We catch up on an awful lot of news here, so stock up on the spicy pepitas!
