We've all had a discussion or an argument about popular culture. Sometimes it happens on Facebook, Tumbler or Twitter. Maybe it was in a literature, history, philosophy or psychology class in college. Perhaps it was at the local comic book shop. Or maybe it was at a bar and you ended up stabbing someone with a bottle or bludgeoning them with a pool cue. All of these discussions are exactly the same. The tenured professor at an academic conference deconstructing Batman through a Derrida lens is really doing the same thing as a bunch of teenagers passing a joint around in their mother's basement. One just uses bigger words and the other swears more. Honestly, though, we're not sure which.



So why not bring them all together?



Vox Populorum is a blog and podcast devoted to pop culture criticism. We believe that the best way to understand culture is to discuss it. Please join our weekly round table of media critics, academics and fans for engaging discussion about movies, novels, comic books, television, video games, music or whatever else we happen to think of!



Nec audiendi qui solent dicere, Vox populi, vox Dei, quum tumultuositas vulgi semper insaniae proxima sit.

Brilliant

Without a doubt the best pseudoacademic drinking and swearing with discussion on the modern interwebz. With the best theme song. Smart folks with challenging insights and an inability to take themselves too seriously.

From a Loyal but Defiant Listener

They said to stop listening if I hadn't seen Avengers: Endgame, because there were going to be spoilers. I hadn't seen the movie, but I listened anyway because this podcast isn't the boss of me! Take that, social expectation that I experience media as it was intended! I do what I want!

A++. Would self-spoil Avengers again!

A Weekly Discourse of Intelligent and Informed Pop Culture Analysis

What makes this podcast unique and noteworthy is how it intentionally sets out to provide an educated and historical context for each topic, inviting a thought-provoking discussion that aims to bring all angles into proper perspective and keeps conversations and debates relevant. There’s plenty of fanboy moments to be sure, but balanced with rationality and restraint. And they’re not shy about tackling topics within fandom that are often times known to be dismissed without
appropriate consideration.
