This week on One Bad Mother, we are excited to share our live show from San Francisco (May 2017) where we talk about bad habits. What makes a bad habit and do we have any control over what habits our kids have? Probably not but that won’t stop Biz from trying to keep her child from becoming the class “booger eater.” Glynn Washington of Snap Judgement joins us and serves as the voice of reason and experience with his parenting perspective with older kids. We need it! Plus live genius and fails!

Note: This week corporal punishment is mentioned in the discussion.

UFO summer is BACK, baby! We leave the Ozark Mountains, and head home to sunny southern California, where we drive deep into the Joshua Tree desert for some serious alien contact with a California hippy vibe. Contact in the Desert, a massive festival featuring presentations on extraterrestrials; alternative history; lizard people; and more, awaits. First up, we hear about the Navy's Secret Space Program, meet one of the most famous abductees in the world, and learn the secrets of the pyramids.

It’s a very special episode of Pop Rocket. We throw Margaret Wappler a baby shower before she takes an extended leave of absence to become a mother. There were games, tears, laughter, joy and even a guest appearance by One Bad Mother’s Biz Ellis.

The gang talk about their favorite lullabies, share what tv shows affected them the most as a child, and Margaret reveals how she would stage her pregnant photo shoot. Plus, Karen brings in an old school Summer Jam, Guy and Margaret are still gaga for Game of Thrones (no spoilers), and Wynter is in love with Ready Player One.

We all love you and wish you the best, Margaret!

With Guy Branum, Wynter Mitchell, Karen Tongson and Margaret Wappler.

That’s My Jam:

Margaret Wappler - REM - Untitled (Track 11)
Karen Tongson - Flo Rida - My House
Wynter Mitchell - Brandy - Baby
Guy Branum - Demi Lovato - Sorry Not Sorry

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.

You can let us know what you think of Pop Rocket and suggest topics in our Facebook group or via @PopRocket on Twitter.

We decided to go with this episode title because it's the literal only premise of the two-hour-long episode of primetime television we watched earlier this week. Also: The remaining suitors meet the family, and begin their journey to the Fantasy Suite.

Inside Pop

We've had a busy pop culture filled week- starting with an exclusive screening of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power followed by a Q&A with Former Vice President Al Gore! We weren't sure if we should bow or curtsy upon seeing him on stage.

Then, we analyze some of the most talked about trailers featured at San Diego Comic Con- including The Defenders, Thor: Ragnarok, Justice League and Star Trek: Discovery. Do they stir up excitement or fall flat?

Plus, we chat about the season two premiere of Insecure - guess how many times Amita mentions Lawrence?

And we bring you another installment of "Way Into . . ." with our guide to get way into one of our favorite Brits- Idris Elba.

And Amita gets her wish- Sean FINALLY watches one of her favorite episodes of the critically acclaimed Donald Glover FX series- Atlanta in The Big Sell.
