The Popcast is the Denzel Washington of podcasts: solid, dependable, hard-working and charmingly humorous. More specifically, it is a weekly conversation between Knox McCoy and Jamie Golden about all things pop culture. Frequently we discuss silly celebrities, inexplicable trends, and the most conversation-worthy TV shows and movies.
Just like any great creative pair, Knox and Jamie met on the Internet. Learn more about their story by listening to Episode 224: The Business of The Popcast.
