    Saturday Morning Adventures: A Bluey Momcast

    This week on Saturday Morning Adventures, Pop Break goes down under to explore the worldwide phenomenon known as Bluey!

    In the first of this two-part run, Pop Break's editor-in-chief Bill Bodkin sits down with some of the moms of Pop Break -- former music editor Lisa Giampapa and Michelle Chapman, co-host of the Roses & Rejection Podcast.

    In the episode, Michelle and Lisa discuss their love for the series, how they relate to Chili Heeler, their other favorite moms in the series, how the depiction of Chili has impacted their roles as moms and how Chili has made them feel seen as moms. They also discuss their favorite episodes, how they got into the series, Michelle goes in-depth on what episodes brought tears to her eyes and how Lisa uses the "Curry Quest" episode as a teaching tool for her 7th grade class. 

    They also talk about the series flash forwards and flashbacks and throw out some pretty bold predictions for the series' future.

    Stay tuned next week for another exciting episode about Bluey, this time just for the dads, and don’t forget to check back in next month when we book our summer vacation at Owl House!

    Good Eats is one of Food Network’s most popular and longest running shows. It won a Peabody Award in 2007.

    Not Couple Goals: Hit Man (2023)

    Not Couple Goals: Hit Man (2023)

    Welcome to “Not Couple Goals” where co-hosts Allie Nelson and Tyler McCarthy do a deep dive into a different ridiculous romantic thriller from the vantage point of their long-term relationship.

    Allie, a TV writer/producer and actress, has an affinity for romantic thrillers, the more salacious the better. Tyler, an entertainment reporter and critic, often finds himself drawn in despite his better judgment. Join them as they explore all the ways it’s possible to love too hard… like WAY too hard.

    Allie and Tyler return once again to tackle the super steamy new movie “Hit Man” starring Glen Powell and Adria Arjona and directed by Richard Linklater. Listen along as they unpack whether this is a star-making role for Powell, dive into how sexy Arjona is in her role and definitely don’t advocate for murder-for-hire. In the Trivia section, they also get deep into the real-life Gary Johnson who inspired the movie (who did not actually kill anyone). 



    Special thanks to Mallory Johns for the introduction music.

    To see more of our hosts, check out Tyler’s writing at USA Insider, SYFY and NBC Insider. Find Allie’s work at Parade and Business Insider!
