Popcast brings families together

I began my (long overdue) journey as a BFOTS over Christmas because my 16 year old and I were driving from NC to TX to se family, and the Popcast is the only thing we can agree on. He loves Knox’s take on things, but his favorite is the “Erin of Grievances” - we rewind and listen to those over and over! I started with the 7-day free trial to get us through the 17 hour drive, but then loved it so much I made it permanent. Thanks Popcast for bringing me and my son together over some good laughs!

Not the same

This used to be a podcast about poking fun at celebrity and pop culture. Now it’s more about making fun of regular people who the hosts find beneath them. This makes it more difficult to enjoy or find funny. There’s usually something in each episode that’s a “punch down.” But I’m not es enlightened as Knox and Jamie so what do I know.

Good time

I don’t care or know much about pop culture but I listen to the Popcast every week because Jamie, Knox and Erin are such a good time. Bonus: I’m now proficient enough in pop culture that I surprise my teens by sometimes knowing more than they do. This team is so fun- thanks y’all!
