We may never figure out which "Sex in the City" character we each correspond with, but that doesn't mean this episode of Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast is a total letdown.  Listen in as we celebrate the start of that New Testament film franchise we predicted, chime in on the ugly "Black Panther" backlash, Michael finally sees "The Last Jedi," Jordan starts his year-long countdown watching 100 essential movie classics and as much other pop culture wittiness as we can squeeze into a show.  Go for it!
