The Socially Distanced Podcast is a podcast hosted by two pop culture obsessed dads who were stuck in quarantine and decided to take their Facebook messenger conversations and turn them into a podcast. In 2022 they brought their friend, a pop culture obsessed mom to the show, and things got even better!
Join hosts Al Mannarino, Amanda Rivas and Bill Bodkin 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 podcast is powered by ThePopBreak.com.
While there may be no mushroom daddies this week, we’ve still got plenty to talk about when it comes to The Last of Us Episode 6 entitled, ‘Kin.’
Host Bill Bodkin is rejoined by Amanda Rivas (fresh off a weekend of cosplay and wrestling in Las Vegas) and the #1 commander of our hearts Ben Murchison to discuss this snow-covered episode of HBO’s smash hit series. As a programming note, next week begins our “All Pedro Pod” as we’ll be discussing both The Last of Us and The Mandalorian.
Before we visit our favorite space daddy next week, Amanda, Ben and Bill discuss Joel’s anxiety, the amazing Joel meme, the beauty of Jackson Hole (and what job they would have there), Pedro Pascal’s Emmy reel performance, his attitudes towards Tommy, if the series is bordering on misery porn and some of the issues they had with the pacing of the episode as well as the cliffhanger ending.
In the pre-game segment they discuss Disney’s decision to space out the releases of new MCU shows and films, the reality of Marvel burnout as seen with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and more.
