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).

Bourne, Jason Bourne...oh wait, wrong franchise! The assassin with amnesia is back and Inside Pop brings you your first review! Does Jason Bourne live up to the hype? Is Matt Damon still on Amita's Celebrity Husbands list? We answer both of those questions and find out how many other celeb spouses she has her eye on. We also bring you another installment of The Inside Pop Quiz and then Sean re-enters the House of Hyperbole to discuss a life changing photo taken at Comic Con last week. Plus - Stranger Things and Star Trek Beyond! All that and a super size Big Sell segment in this jam packed episode of Inside Pop!

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!

This week, in honor of Pride month, we welcome our friend, Kevyn Fairchild of the upcoming podcast, The Queer Dilemma, to countdown our top three LGBT TV characters of all time! Characters from The Wire, True Blood, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Grey's Anatomy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and many more) made our short lists. Listen now to hear us celebrate some of the most entertaining, powerful, funny and inspirational characters that have given us pop culture joy over the years. This podcast was recorded before the horrific mass murder in Orlando. The time before that nightmarish event now feels like a slightly more innocent time - both for the LGBT community - and for all Americans. We post this episode in celebration of diversity and creativity and most of all, love.
