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 2001 brings us a phenomenal movie in Training Day. We talk about Denzel Washington’s legendary performance and the crooked cop who inspired it. Plus we learn how much six pounds of cocaine is worth. Spoilers: it is a lot. We also talk about Barry Bonds breaking the single-season home run record. That dude could smash home runs, but we talk about the special stuff that probably helped him.
In 2011 we talk about a remake nobody needed: Footloose. We also dive into the first season of American Horror Story which debuted this week. All of this before our recording is derailed by tech issues. We still have a ton of fun on the way!
