The Donald Glover Episode
We’re back with another episode of PopCycle for y’all! Special thanks for CJSR for letting us record in their space for this one. The most fun thing about doing a podcast is you can basically do it from anywhere, we prefer studios but that’s mostly because we yell a lot. Podcasting also makes us feel like we’re young again for some reason. Maybe because it’s hip and cool and we’re both hip and also cool. Maybe not.
When it comes to be on the pulse of what the kids are all about, you can usually count us out - but in the case of Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino, we’re all in. Though we weren’t ground floor supporters - not being big fans of Community, we fell hard for his rap skillz after his huge success with “Because the Internet” and “This is America”. Now we can’t get enough of him and base entire podcasts on his life. So sue us.
This episode we talk about Glover’s work in TV and Film, music and more and we end up talking about some pretty cool stuff including the British/Italian sci-fi show, Space 1999 and Nina Simone! My mom always said, PopCycle is like life and I think it’s because Forrest Gump’s momma said, “Life is like a box o’ chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” Unless you’re eating Pot o’ Gold because that stuff comes with a legend.
We hope you enjoy this second episode of PopCycle, if you missed it, our last episode was based on Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood and so if you like what you’re hearing, take a listen to that too! Next month we’re talking Michael Jackson’s Thriller and our episode will drop on Hallowe’en coincidentally. We’re also welcoming our first PopCycle guest as we have That’s a Thing’s Karen Unland on the program. Very much looking forward to all this and more episodes down the pipe.
