    Abby’s back this week (then off for a few, European-summer style) with notes on the glorious union of Ben + Jen at long last, Harry’s new video for Late Night Talking, and that college class about him that she, frankly, finds lacking and unimpressive. Plus, Real Housewives, First Kill, Boo Bitch, the DB Cooper docuseries on Netflix, and that HBO Max one, The Anarchists.

    Let's Take a (Rodeo) Break (with Alexander Mae)

    Let's Take a (Rodeo) Break (with Alexander Mae)

    Abby has a few notes on the awfulness that is the Roe decision. Then she's joined by her friend Alexander Mae, of Rodeo Break and the new Talk Rodeo podcast, aka a millennial lil sister in all things pop culture and beyond. They get into so very many things: One Direction, Hailey Bieber's new skincare line Rhode, Kim Kardashian's SKKN, why we love the Kardashians but can acknowledge when they are problematic, some notes for Kravis, a detour into breast reduction surgery, Pete Davidson, Gwyneth + GOOP + Apple Martin, the utter cool of Dakota Johnson, The Summer I Turned Pretty, Taylor, Jonah Hill + Seth Rogen, wedding season, and cats...the animal not the musical. As one does. There is truly something for everyone.

    You Know I Love a London Boy

    You Know I Love a London Boy

    Why yes, Abby did indeed survive two nights of Harry Styles at Wembley. She's sharing all the manic fangirl details and some other London recommendations. But there are also notes on two new obsessions: Beyoncé's "Break My Soul" in all its '90s house music glory and The Summer I Turned Pretty on Amazon Prime, which is so charming and wonderful.

    First up, some nostalgic (and spoiler-free!) notes on the glory that is Top Gun: Maverick and the slow-starter but ultimately super fun new season of Stranger Things. Then Abby is joined by writers/producers/showrunners Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch to talk about their latest show Roar on AppleTV+, their gone-too-soon GLOW on Netflix, their creative process, telling women's stories, working with Nicole Kidman, and much more.

Fun weekly convos with pop culture fans

Abby’s podcast is such a fun listen. She brings the latest pop culture news with insights from a variety of other pop culture-obsessed guests.
I’ve discovered a lot of new shows to explore - and gone down Memory Lane with so many of her Gen X pop culture references.
…And I’ve learned to appreciate Harry Styles. 😉

All killer, no filler

Abby is so smart — her references, her taste, her insight are all amazing. So many podcasts that claim to be about “pop culture” are just messy rambling about likes and dislikes with little consideration for the audience — this is thoughtful and concise but still a lot of fun, and you’ll get a lot of great recs when you listen. Time well spent.

My perfect podcast!

I am loving this podcast so much! Abby is fantastic and her guests are wonderful! This is such a fun listen! All of the pop culture and music references make me happy!
