In this special episode, we recap and dissect The 68th Emmy Awards- celebrating the shows that won big including Game of Thrones, The People V OJ Simpson and Veep. We also discuss the great night for diversity including Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang's win for Master of None that had us yelling Asians Represent!!! And we bring you another edition of Slay or Nay and shout out the fashion highs (we're looking at you Rami Malek. No really - we are LOOKING at you. Intensely) and lows. And for the the first time in Inside Pop history we are obligated to issue a retraction and apology. We mistakenly discuss a pregnant actress AND criticize her outfit. Sadly -we discovered that she just had her baby and is not pregnant. Listen to the ep to find out who will shortly receive an official apology and bouquet of flowers from the show. Plus - we are only two weeks away from The Big Sell 30 Day Challenge. Listen to find out how you can join the challenge and experience one new piece of pop culture, every day for 30 days. #BigSell30

Is it hot in here or is it us? Actually - it's all of the incredibly attractive and fit Olympic athletes flipping and flexing in Rio! We are so very appreciative of their athletic endowments that we've awarded our own medals for favorite #OlympicBaes. From hurdlers to swimmers to fencers, we tell you who you need to ogle before the closing ceremonies. Parental warning: The words 'package,' and 'bulge' are used liberally throughout this segment. Plus, as the summer winds down, we review the movie trailers that have us hyped for Fall - including Rogue One, Moonlight, Hidden Figures and La La Land. Then, our very special guests from the Sistah Speak Podcast Network join us for our biggest Big Sell ever!

This week, we're going into the Inside Pop vault! With such a large number of summer binge-worthy series like "Stranger Things," "A Night of," "Unreal" and the upcoming "The Get Down," you may feel like you're at risk of falling behind on the Television everyone's talking about. We feel your pain! Earlier this year we failed to watch "Making a Murderer" when it premiered and were most definitely "Late to the Party." Listen to hear how we manage our TV tardiness. Plus - remember when Joseph Fiennes was cast as Michael Jackson?! Nope - that wasn't a dream! AND mentions of Breaking Bad, The Wire, Prince and this episode is where we discovered the "Discover Weekly" Spotify playlist!

Game of Thrones is ending...wait, what?! This week, we discuss the news from HBO that the hit show is ending after its 8th season and debate whether this is the best or the saddest news of the week. Then, we talk about whether there is an optimum number of seasons for a television series and also whether all TV seasons should be limited to 13 or fewer episodes. We cite some of our favorite shows, Stranger Things, Grey's Anatomy, The Simpsons, The People V. OJ Simpson, and of course Lost, to make our point. Plus, Amita and Sean share the thing they're most excited to see at the Rio Olympics (Hint - it's neither the thrill of victory nor the agony of defeat).

Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan, Marvin Gaye, John Lennon, Patti Smith, Public Enemy, U2, KRS-One --- Pop culture has produced a long history of artists ready to answer the call to protest injustice, rail against ignorance and call out for understanding. But 2016 has produced so many horrors that, if you're anything like us, you may wonder whether podcasts - or pop culture in general, has any place in this new, darker world order. Does it matter what an actor has to say about police brutality? What good does a benefit concert actually do? Can a song make any difference? These are some of the questions we attempt to answer in this special episode of Inside Pop. We discuss the efforts of Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Miguel, Jesse Williams, Jennifer Lopez, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and others to make sense of and affect positive change in this increasingly frightening world.

At the beginning of the year we made bold resolutions we hoped would dial our pop culture fabulousness up to 11!! Now, at the halfway point of 2016, we are holding ourselves accountable to see if we stuck to our promises and kept our cultural commitments. How do we fare? Let's just say at one point the podcast resembles Cersei Lanister's Walk of Atonement. Plus the Big Sell returns!
