In this episode, Mike and I discuss Jordan Peele's new film, GET OUT.  We talk about how it works as a comedy, a horror film, and a satire.  Britt also joins me to talk about a true classic, WEST SIDE STORY.  I know, there is no connection here, but last week, we had our awards show, so it's good enough for me!

Well, it's finally here.  Our 2nd Annual Pop Culture Case Study Awards.  As all podcasters seem to think that the Oscars get it wrong, EVERY SINGLE YEAR, I have gathered all of them here to make their own choices!

 

This year, instead of numerous guests, Mike and I talk about all 7 categories, and the result is that our awards show, unlike many others, is about an hour long.  

 

We discuss snubs, awards for the major categories, and 2016 as a whole.  Enjoy!
