Looking for thoughtful analysis and friendly banter to navigate the pop culture waters? Have no fear: The Thrill, Maclean’s 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 talking pop with your friends!

On this week’s podcast, we do an extra-long segment about Sunday night’s Academy Awards, and we bring in film critic John Semley to help us make our picks and figure how much accuracy a biopic owes us. And to discuss the film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey, we’ve invited Colin Munch, the writer of the internationally touring show Spank: A Fifty Shades Parody, to figure out who the movie was even for.
