Sad to see this show end

I always loved this show and am sad to see it go :( This show was a great weekly does of pop culture with a diverse, intelligent, and engaging group of hosts! The last episode and tarot card episode had me in tears as I have come to really care about he hosts as their voices always brightened my commute to work. I hope they all find other ways to channel their love for pop culture in way that works for them.

The perfect blend for your pop culture fix

This is my first time writing a review for any media, podcasts included. I have been a happy pop-rocketeer for over 2 years and am heartbroken to learn that this perfect mix of personality, perspective, heart, and humor will no longer echo through my headphones.Pop rocket provides in-depth takes on pop culture that I can't find in my everyday life. The panel's diversity begets conversations with the context that is not present on other podcasts of the same ilk, which is very important to me as a queer black latina. I have consistently gotten the best music, movies, and shows recommendations which I would have not discovered otherwise. Also, as a 20-year old, I'm constantly playing catch up when trying to consume media that came before my time. Pop Rocket has been an invaluable tool in helping me close my knowledge gap.I wish everyone all the best luck and success in your careers as well as peace and happiness at home.Much love from a forever fan who will replay the backlogs.

I Cried at the Tarot Reading

I know this review comes too late. And I will forever regret that. Still, this podcast has been a welcome breath of fresh air to my Bro heavy podcast diet.This show has introduced me to a feast of new ideas, books and music. More importantly the crew expertly does what I think every panel show podcast should do which is to blend interesting topics with their own sparkling personalities and unique interpersonal chemistry to make truly fun and enlightening conversations. Jesus, I know that reads like a 10th grade AP English student writing about their favorite NPR show, but time is too short for me to process my love for this show into better prose. Please forgive me.Love, Your worst fan.

Gone too soon

Imagine if you got a pink slip and instead of packing up, flipping HR the bird, and leaving right then, you worked 3 more weeks and actually cared about your work product. Yeah, I’m not that good of a person, but the Pop Rocket team are. This show is consistently my favorite part of the week as the team balances pop culture fandom and cultural criticism in a way that feels effortless.

An Archive to Treasure

Pop Rocket might be going away, but it's a treasure. If you love pop culture, go back and listen to old episodes! The "all abouts" might not age as seamlessly, but the discussions are always worth listening to.

Academic, hilarious, QPOC pop culture podcast

I LOVE this podcast. It offers an in-depth look at some aspect of pop culture, with both queer and POC representation. It’s great and I’m sad it’s going!

Smart and fabulous

I have been listening since the beginning and am so sad to hear that the show is coming to an end. The hosts provide fresh insights on pop culture that can be regurgitated later to sound smart. Save Pop Rocket!

We who are about to cry, salute you

I didn’t realize how much I depended on this show to get me through the week until I heard that Maximum Fun decided to cancel it. The news makes me so very sad, but before it ends I wanted to say how much it has meant to me to listen to such a learned, invested, and diverse group of people talk about pop culture. It’s been informative, amusing, and utterly charming. I will miss the show, and I look forward to what the hosts move on to. I have immense affection for each of them individually and as a group. Thank you for everything.

Love it!

I love the intellectual conversations about pop culture and making silly things smart. I also like Karen’s POV and her voice. I melt every time she say, “Hello Rockteers”
