Welcome to the Pop Capsule Podcast, where we review the pop culture happenings from 10 & 20 years ago each week. Right now we’re covering 2001 & 2011.
This week we talk about 9/11, 20 years after it happened. We reflect on our own memories of the event, and the massive impacts it had on pop culture. From Big Brother to Spider-Man to Saturday Night Live, many shows and movies felt the impact of the event. We also talk about the major albums that came out that day from artists like Jay-Z, Nickelback, and Mariah Carey.
We also talk about Charles Ingram, the British Army Major who cheated his way to £1 million on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Who cheats on a game show? Apparently this guy, his wife, and an accomplice.
Finally, we wrap by moving to 2011 and talking about more Millionaire, as Regis Philbin announced his retirement from Live with Regis & Kelly this week. We look at the shortlist to replace him and even give our own opinions.
