    239: Charlie's Angels with Cian Sullivan

    Good morning, Angels! This week Troy gets to live out one of his tween fantasies, which is to talk really intensely about the 2000 remake of Charlie's Angels for an hour. Cian Sullivan from Sissy That Pod is here and they discuss everything from the insane amount of (sometimes problematic) costumes to the hugely popular "wire-fu" fighting style featured in the film. They also break down how this movie holds up through a 2022 lens and why the chemistry between the three leads works so well. Oh, and the music because duh!

    238: 2007 VMA's with Jacob Frazier

StillWAITING!!!!! ,

Love it

Troy is a poker player (great show!)

Meeeeeeeeeia ,

LOVE TROY!

His takes on everything are always so insightful, articulate, enthusiastic, and spot-on! That’s saying a lot for a host covering the topics he does, because that doesn’t tend to be the norm. Oh, and he’s hilarious to boot! Love his deep dives and his encyclopedic knowledge of all things pop culture. Side note: His Instagram is a treasure trove of all things 2000s that’ll have you constantly going “OMG I remember that!”
