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’re diving into two different TV happenings from 2001. The Tribute to Heroes Telethon happened this week 20 years ago, and we dive into how telethons just aren’t a thing anymore. We also talk about the series premiere of Star Trek: Enterprise and Evan dives deep into nerdom.
Speaking of being nerds, in 2011 Moneyball was released. Imagine taking sports and making it about math. What nerds! We also talk about the debut of New Girl and the world getting a heavy dose of Zooey Deschanel quirkiness.
