    Episode 25: Stop Trying

    Episode 25: Stop Trying

    Brooke is solo this week so she can try to wrap her head around “The Try Guys” scandal. Before Monday, she’d never even heard of “The Try Guys.” And who is Ned Fulmer, what did he do, and why is everyone talking about it? Brooke digs in. She also talks about her experience seeing “Don’t Worry Darling” in the theater and, of course, our favorite Jewish pop group, the Miami Boys Choir!

    Episode 24: Besties!

    Episode 24: Besties!

    Today, Brooke is joined by her best friend, and someone who inspired the creation of Pop Culture Mondays, Britt Morgan-Saks. Britt and Brooke travel back to crazy times spent at New York’s iconic Bungalow 8 and talk about how Britt, a born & bred New Yorker, made a pandemic move to Jacksonville, Florida, where she’s building a transformational community-based hospitality business. They then dive into the hot topics of the week, from the spectrum of reactions to the casting of Ariel in Disney’s new “The Little Mermaid,” to the tragic death of Mahsa Amini in Iran and the unprecedented protests it has sparked, and finally (of course) the Adam Levine drama. It’s a mixed bag of emotions this week!

    Episode 23: Live from Future Proof with Mick Batyske

    Pop Culture Mondays on Thursdays has its first live show with a studio audience recorded at the Future Proof Festival this week in Huntington Beach. Brooke sits down with pop culture icon Mick Batyske, who’s not only a well-known DJ, but is also an investor and an advisor to startups. Mick has deejayed for everyone you can imagine, from Jay-Z to LeBron James and Michelle Obama. Hear about his journey to the top, what music matters to him most, what he could do without (ahem.. “Wobble”), and how he approaches TikTok tunes. Brooke and Mick also dive into some of the biggest pop culture stories of the moment, including all the drama surrounding the new movie “Don’t Worry Darling,” and talk about tech’s impact on the music industry.

    We also have our very own special playlist for POP CULTURE MONDAYS...ON THURSDAYS made by Mick!

    Episode 22: Cancelled!

    Today, Brooke celebrates the cancellation of Andrew Tate and looks into what got Meta to pull the plug on him — creators like Daz Games played a big part. She also talks about some of her favorite "food fails” made by politicians over the years (hint: the only thing you put on a cinnamon raisin bagel is butter!) And last but not least, Brooke goes through her favorite content right now. Books. Shows. Movies. It’s a rapid fire PCMoT!

    Episode 21: Kara Kara Kara

    This week, Brooke has the iconic tech journalist and podcast queen, Kara Swisher, on as her guest. Kara and Brooke dive into a whole host of topics, including manifestations of grief on social media (aka #grieftok) and some of the ugly behavior we saw online around Anne Heche’s tragic death. They also discuss the Scandalo of the moment: Dr. Oz and his crudités. Brooke and Kara then reminisce about the early days of Silicon Valley and relive Kara’s path to world domination. And finally, who is the bigger Harry Styles Stan? It’s a toss up.

    Episode 20: OH, COME ON!

    This week, Brooke goes solo as she has a lot on her mind. Specifically, a growing trend of toxic masculinity and clout chasing across social platforms like TikTok and Instagram, and she has lots of thoughts on Meta and privacy. One way or another, pop culture is always involved! Happy Thursday!
