Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast #86

00:0000:00

Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast wraps up the year with a brand new episode, where Michael regales us with a story about being attacked by an elderly dog and we copyright the word "podcast."  There's also some stuff about another underwhelming finale for "The Walking Dead," a nostalgia-fueled documentary on Netflix, a slew of new comic book releases and a peek under the mask of "Riverdale's" Black Hood killer, but really, it's all a bit anticlimactic after the geriatric dog stuff.  Happy New Year, Jesses, and here's to a 2018 even more down with KPP!
