POP DNA TRACES THE LITERARY AND HISTORICAL INFLUENCES OF YOUR FAVORITE WORKS OF POP CULTURE. Your hosts, Erin and Rhonda, use their pathetically detailed and trivial knowledge of movies and television, as well as their otherwise useless degrees in liberal arts and literature, to bring you monthly discussions of selected pop culture works, geek outs over long-dead authors and historical figures, jokes no one else will think are funny, and literary allusions no one asked for. Listen, or don't, we don't care, it's your life.

    Indiana Jones with Keith Watts

    Welcome to Season Two! We are starting the season off with a bang and talking about everyone’s favorite professor, Indiana Jones, joined by Rhonda’s brother and longtime Indy fan Keith!

    We look into the film franchise’s roots in adventure serials from the 1930s, dabble in the history of archaeology, and discuss what the Nazis were really doing all that time, plus try our best to answer the burning question: is Kingdom of the Crystal Skull good?

    Beauty and the Beast – LIT(erature) Summer

    Beauty and the Beast – LIT(erature) Summer

    It’s our last LIT(erature) Summer episode and the end of Season One! We’re looking at the original 18th Century French fairy tale Beauty and the Beast and trying (unsuccessfully) to not reference Disney. We delve into other Beast and Beauty tales and the lasting impact of the story on literature, film, and culture.
