Looking for thoughtful analysis and friendly banter to navigate the pop culture waters? Have no fear: Maclean’s The Thrill pop culture podcast is here! Every week, Maclean’s arts writers Adrian Lee, Emma Teitel and Julia De Laurentiis Johnson will gather to discuss and break down the hottest topics in TV, film, books and music. Expect discussion, analysis, and interviews, all replicating the feeling of having a coffee and chatting with your friends!
On this week’s podcast we discuss the ABC sitcom Fresh Off the Boat, which stars an Asian-American family for the first time in two decades; the controversial To Kill a Mockingbird sequel from Harper Lee; and, because we’re starting the show on the eve of Valentine’s Day, we riff on our favourite love stories in pop culture: what works, what doesn’t, and why?
