    This Episode is 100% Video Games

    This Episode is 100% Video Games

    We at the Pop Culture Field Manual podcast love video games. We really do. But we've come to realize a lot of times we end up talking about movies or television shows rather than giving video games the respect and time they deserve. To correct this we've dedicated this entire episode to military (and as always, military adjacent) video games and why we love them. Cam and Iz are bound to bring up one of your favorites, whether it's Call of Duty, World of Warcraft or even something super nerdy like the Lord of the Rings games. It's wall to wall video games, baby!

    The episode ends with a new game called "Gaming the System" where our hosts have to guess the main character of the video game Chris gives them. Israel does a lot of the heavy lifting, but Cameron pitches in as well. Overall, we think you'll be impressed, but just in case you're not, we'll preemptively tell you to go screw yourself.

    The Thanksgiving Episode

    The Thanksgiving Episode

    It's that magical time of year where everyone (in America at least) stops to reflect on what they're thankful for. And although Israel and Cam are superior physical specimens with an intellect an average person can only dream of attaining, they're just like everyone else. This episode is dedicated to giving thanks for all of the pop culture magic they get to enjoy this year and every year.

    They finish the episode with a fine game of 5 Clues, with Cam in the driver's seat and Iz along for the wild, guessing ride. SPOILERS: Israel is good at this game. Happy Thanksgiving!

    PCFM Dream Teams!

    PCFM Dream Teams!

    We finally did it. After months of planning and meticulously pouring over every possibly combination, we sat Israel and Cameron down to tell us their pop culture dream teams. Izzy's is an ODA and Cam's is a Ranger platoon (sort of) but the gang's all here and ready to fight whatever theoretical battle we can think up. Listen in and see how their teams stack up to your OWN dream team that you've written about obsessively in journal. Yeah, we read your journal. What are you going to do about it?

    The episode rounds out with a rousing game of Two Truths and Lie. Can Cameron see his way through Israel's lies? We can't tell you, otherwise what would be the point of listening to the podcast?

    Veterans Day is EVERY DAY

    Veterans Day is EVERY DAY

    Just in time for Veterans Day, our two very own veterans Cameron and Israel sit down with fellow veteran Mike Eckard to share a bevy of cool war stories and talk about their favorite veterans in pop culture. If we tried a little harder, we probably could have fit a few more "veterans" into that previous sentence. Lots to enjoy here from tales of being Special Forces in Vietnam, to everyone dishing about their favorite cadre, to going over Sylvester Stallone's movie career. VETERANS!

    The episode rounds out with a soon-to-be-classic game of "Name That War." It's exactly what it sounds like, unless you think it sounds like giving a cool name to wars that already exist or haven't been fought yet. Hmmm, that's actually not bad. We're stealing that from you.

    Don't Call It A Chick Flick

    Don't Call It A Chick Flick

    Women in the military (and action movies/video games) is not only NOT controversial, but something to be celebrated. Think of all the badass women that populate our pop culture: Jill Valentine, Captain Janeway, and of course, Ellen Ripley of the Alien franchise. Cameron and Israel bring on a special guest, retired Marine Jennifer Brofer, to discuss all things we love about fierce women in movies, television and video games. 

    The gang plays an exciting round of "Lifetime Movie or Military Movie" to polish off this doozy of an episode. Finally, an excuse to tap into our collective love of Lifetime movies!

    A Very Spooky Halloween Episode

    A Very Spooky Halloween Episode

    BOO! Did we get you? Well, don't worry... we will. Israel and Cameron bring new meaning to the phrase "the amount of bodies that get stacked, something's gotta come back" as they bring to you the most creepy military ghost stories from around the U.S. Armed Forces: the terrifying events at OP Rock, haunted tunnels in Vietnam and even a chilling first hand account from Cameron's time at Ft. Benning. 

    The episode reaches its final destination after a light-hearted game of PURE EVIL. Do you know which bad guys live in which movies and games? Yeah, well, so do lots of people. No one likes a bragger.
