This week, we are jam packed with everything you need to know about the latest in pop culture! We start off with a roundup of new trailers for Game of Thrones and Spiderman: Homecoming- do they live up to the hype?

And speaking of hype- we discuss our "Hype Songs" - the tracks that make us turnt up, get us energized and keep us in a good mood to conquer the day or rule the night.

Then, we discuss Sofia Coppola's win at Cannes Film Festival for Best Director of the upcoming film The Beguiled, and the controversy surrounding the female only screenings popping up around the country for Wonder Woman this coming weekend.

Plus, Sean returns to the House of Hyperbole to discuss the most sexual sex scene he's ever witnessed on television in the new series, American Gods.

And Amita gives her review and rating of last week's Big Sell, British singer songwriter, Laura Mvula and suggests another unique soulful voice- Earl St. Clair.

  • Chris Cornell died last week and Amita Patel shares her feelings and memories of the singer and also provides a guide to finding some of his best work online.

This week we react to the first four masterful episodes of Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang's, Master of None. Amita shares the particular joy that comes with watching this South Asian auteur do his his thing!

Then we explain why watching the current season of Scandal is the equivalent to having Pity Sex!

Next we introduce a new segment, Way Into, in which we present a guide for you to become as 'Way Into" a piece of pop culture as we are. In this inaugural segment, Sean presents a Way Into. . . Twin Peaks - and tells you everything you need to know and do to prepare for the Twin Peaks premiere on Showtime on Sunday May 21st.

Then we celebrate our 75th episode in a very special way!

And as always, we end with The Big Sell. Amita rates and reviews Sean's Instagram Big Sell from last week and sells him on a YouTube series that involves chicken, celebrities and hot sauce... Spicy!

The Pop Insiders never lie! As promised - May is lit and in this episode we dive into the unbearable 'litness' of pop culture in its first week. We discuss:

  • Mary J. Blige's new album, Strength of a Woman.
  • The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu.
  • Our ecstatic experience seeing The Revolution live in NYC.
  •  The passing of the great director, Jonathan Demme.
