Pretty Much Pop #157: The Function of a Pop Culture Podcast

What is media criticism, and is that what we’re doing? For our Season 3 finale (i.e. the end  of PMP’s 4th year of operation), your now officially official hosts Mark Linsenmayer, Lawrence Ware, Sarahlyn Bruck, and Al Baker turn their gazes fully toward their collective navel to think about what purposes are served by discussions about pop culture and how we can do it better.

We talk about our approach to choosing topics should be, when we want to have guests, what kinds of guests, and the potential need to come up with some sort of thesis to guide the discussion. What do you, the listeners, think about all of this? Let us know!

Follow us @law_writes, @sarahlynbruck, @ixisnox, @MarkLinsenmayer.
