"Time for the charm bomb to explode."




Things are starting to slowly open…the end is in sight!  Are you ready to get back out there in the world?  Michelle has no immune system so she is waiting for the red shirts to get out there first and see what happens. (10 points if you get the reference. I mean…you should…)

We are sharing our geek out for the week as we both are all about the two geeks out that are chosen.

BOBS’S BURGERS IS FINALLY GOING TO BE A MOVIE!!! This is not a test, folks, this is a for real deal! On April 9th 2021, our beloved Belcher family will be hitting the big screen and we couldn’t be more excited!  Fun fact…a couple of years ago we were planning out a whole Bob’s Burgers cosplay…we had the whole family.  Then our Linda backed out…our Gene didn’t want to be Gene as he felt it was a goofy character and he should be Bob.  And it all fell apart. But rest assured, Michelle and Stefanie are pulling out our best Louise and Tina for this movie!!



Netflix announced the premiere date for season two of The Umbrella Academy!!! The teaser is just as fun with the cast, self quarantined, dancing in their homes.  We are so excited for s2.  Are you a fan?  You know that this is going to end up as an episode of our podcast so we can geek out over the Hargreeves family!



What has made you geek out over the last week?  We’d love to hear about it.

More Geeking Out: The Corona-cle Era

We hope you are all doing good still, not going too crazy with Shelter In Place/Stay At Home orders still in effect. It feels like it is coming to an end soon, which means that we will carefully make plans to get together and start podcasting again!! 😃😃

But have no fear, we are here to share with you another week of geeking out!

Stefanie is geeking out over the big news that Boba Fett is going to be in s2 of The Mandalorian! Last time we saw the bounty hunter he was tumbling down the sandy dunes into the waiting mouth of the Sarlaac.


Michelle is geeking out over the latest social media time kill craze, TikTok. Hot Cops, cute pets, crazy dances, and new ways to irritate the people in your life?  She's all over this!!

Michelle's favorite video of how to annoy your family!

See you next week with more geeking out goodness.

Happy Star Wars Day!!



A Rebel and a Sith walk into a bar...

Are we the new dyad, we have to wonder?

Happy Star Wars Day!!

This day is all about celebrating that galaxy far, far away and not paying any attention to the ugly drama that seems to consume this fandom so often.

How are you celebrating the day? We'd love to hear about what you did today.

May the Force be with you!

xoxo,

Stef and Mich

We are still Geeking Out!

While we are still on our unplanned Co-Vid19 hiatus, we thought that we would keep up with you on what we are geeking out about while we are at home.  And we hope that you will share with us what you are geeking out about as well.

Stefanie is living her life back in 2011 right now and has FINALLY given in to the temptation to watch GAME OF THRONES!!  She has been warned that she might as well not get too attached to any of the players in the game as they don’t have long life expectancy for the most part. (And Michelle is NEVER going to not sing the praise of how much she loves Jaime Lannister to her! She doesn’t care if he pushed nosy Bran Stark out the window.)



Stef is also geeking out over the reboot of SAVED BY THE BELL that is coming!  Do you think she is a Zach or Slater girl?




Michelle is living her own past as well and completely geeking out over the NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK VIRTUAL CRUISE that happened over the weekend on Facebook, Instagram, and You Tube.  If you didn’t know Michelle is a die-hard Blockhead and boy band fan for life.  Saturday night, the guys hosted a Glitter Party, that was absolutely hysterical and she spent the night texting and chatting with friends while they laughed over the insanity of the guys.   And Michelle is 100% a Donnie girl.





How about you?  What are you geeking out over while you are in quarantine?  Maybe next week, we’ll share some of the crazy online shopping purchases that have been happening because well, you know how it goes when you get bored…you online shop!

We are still working on doing a bit of a change up for our Patreon and would love to hear what would make YOU want to be a patron of Pop Culture Junkees! 





We LOVE to hear from you!

This Corona Virus business is meh!




We hope that you are all doing well and keeping yourselves safe and at home.  We definitely miss you and are anxious to get back to entertaining you with our crazy pop culture views.  We prefer to record our podcast when we can be in the same room with each other as we work better that way so for now we are on a bit of unwanted hiatus, but have no fear, Pop Culture Junkees is coming back better than ever. 

See you soon!!!

We LOVE to hear from you!

Episode 13 - This is the Way




This episode is one of our most fun to date!!  We have four members of the Arizona chapter of The Mandalorian Mercenaries Costume Club, joining us!! 

Representing the Shonare Vhekadla Clan, we have DJ, Jeff, Tammy and Tiana.   Michelle joined us on the phone as she was sick.  We talked all things Mandalorian...both in the extended Star Wars universe and from the crazy popular Mandalorian TV show.  (Yes, yes, there was quite a bit of Baby Yoda talk going on...I mean how could you not?)

Stef will try not to rub it in to Michelle that she got to wear a helmet.  (Whatever, Stef, whatever....LOL)

If you want to check out the Shonare Vhekadla Clan, you can follow them on Instagram at SVC_Mando

Stefanie is geeking out over FINALLY getting settled in so she can play Star Wars: The Old Republic  (We may have lost her for a bit...)

Michelle is geeking out over Phoenix Fan Fusion guest announcements.  She is most excited over Clark Gregg, who has been a dream guest of hers for a while.  Though she suspects that most people are geeking out over Christopher Eccleston.




We are asking for your feedback on what you want to see for our Patreon for this year...what perks can we offer you to make you want to help support our podcast? We also want to know if we were to offer swag, what would you want to see?  Stickers? Pins? Shirts?  

We LOVE to hear from you!

Episode 12 - Be My Galentine



It's a belated Galentine's Day from Stefanie and Michelle! 

We discuss the best female friendships out there in honor of Galentine's Day.  Did we miss your favorite duo? Let us know!

Then we took a quiz to find out what kind of friend we are.  If you want to take the quiz, here is the link:  What Kind of Friend are you?  Please share your results with us.  Hopefully you aren't a Debbie Downer, like we were. 

This led to the topic of inner diaglogue and the fact that some people evidently do not have dialogue in their heads.  What?  For Real?  NY Post Article about how this is possible. 

We had a conversation about The Witcher and both totally agree that Henry Cavill grunting is exactly what we want. 

Stefanie is geeking out over the new release of B.L. Brunnemer's book in the The Veil Diaries series, When The Dead Come Home.

Michelle is geeking out over the new podcast from Nicole Byer and Lauren Lapkus, Newcomers: Star Wars

We are wanting your feedback on what you want to see for our Patreon for this year...what perks can we offer you to make you want to help support our podcast? We also want to know if we were to offer swag, what would you want to see?  Stickers? Pins? Shirts?  

We LOVE to hear from you!
