Al Mannarino and Bill Bodkin are two pop culture obsessed dads stuck in quarantine. They have decided to take their Facebook messenger conversations and turn them into a podcast. As they discuss everything in the world movies, music, sports, television, and pop culture — everything keeping them sane in this time of socially distancing.
This week, Al & Bill are joined by Lucas P. Jones — podcast producer and senior writer at The Pop Break. Al, Bill and Lucas discuss what the hell Quibi is and why you should care. They also talk about how John Krasinski is bringing “Some Good News” into the world, how brands like HBO and Sirius XM are giving people free content in this crazy time we are living in, and much more. Oh yeah, and we talk about Tiger King again.
