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.
Socially Distanced returns to a galaxy far, far away as we embark on our Ahsoka review series. Yes, for the next six weeks we’re talking about the serialized adaptation of the wildly popular Star Wars character.”
“The Human Star Wars Encyclopedia” Amanda Rivas is joined by “The Shadow Warrior” Bill Bodkin (Pop Break’s Editor-in-Chief) and special guest Jeff Grettler — a former pro wrestler (who battled the likes of The Von Erichs and Ahmed Johnson) and the host of the Dos Incredibles Network are here to discuss Ahsoka Episode 5, “The Shadow Warrior.”
In the episode they debate whether Anakin Skywalker was a force ghost or not, they bask in the glory of the callbacks to Clone Wars and Rebels, they discuss the brilliance of Arianna Greenblatt who plays young Ahsoka, plus how emotionally impactful the episode was. They revel in the comeback of Hayden Christiansen as Anakin Skywalker and how he went from pariah to perfection. They talk about the brilliance of Dave Filoni — who wrote and directed the episode — and how he should become the full-time Kevin Feige of all things Star Wars.
In the pre-game segment they discuss the news of The Crow starring Bill Skarsgard and FKA Twigs being picked up by Lionsgate Films.
