This week Bryan gets taught about weed culture, while Erin shares her awkward interaction at a local vegan/Mexican restaurant. Also, a contestant on Survivor was recently outed as Transgender by another contestant during the Tribal Council, and a Missouri lawmaker and allergist was upset about protections for women being passed and claim McDonald's and the Zoo are subject to more regulations than abortion clinics.

This week, the Pop Rocket panel has some extra help to talk about the 5 years and 6 seasons of Girls that ended this past Sunday from the New York based comedy duo Las Culturistas. As you can imagine, the gang has a lot to say during this post mortem. They talk about whether we got closure from the final episode, and whether Lena should have just stopped at the penultimate episode. Did the producers of Girls do enough to deal with the lack of racial diversity on the show over the 5 years? What role did nudity and sex play on show, and why was it so refreshing? Was Elijah used as a trophy or seen as a peer by Hannah? And did we think that this was a genuinely funny show? All of these questions will be answered, plus Bowen and Wynter are all about new video games, and Matt can't stop listening to the new Gaga. In lieu of jams this week, we get a master class in the signature segment on the Las Culturistas podcast, "I Don't Think So Honey"-- things get rowdy.
We also want to thank everyone who donated during the MaxFun Drive this year, and give a particular shoutout to those who donated on our shows behalf. Tweet at us if you made a donation to us and didn't receive your voicemail from Karen Tongson.
If you will be in the Los Angeles area this Friday, April 21st, make sure to check out Matt and Bowen's improv group Pop Roulette at UCB Sunset at 10:30 p.m.
Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.
Micah brings the case against his girlfriend Jenny. Micah would like to buy a 3D printer for their home. Jenny thinks their apartment is too small. She thinks he should wait until they move into a bigger place.
SUBMITTED BY MICAH:
Click here to check out the printer that Micah would like. This is the space where he proposes the printer would live:
He says, "“As can be seen, the printer could comfortably fit beneath my computer desk--I would move the shelf that is currently down there to the place immediately to the right of the desk. The box that is currently in that spot would be moved to a more storage-y place since it's just holding random cords, PC parts, and other knickknacks that don't really need to be immediately accessible.”
SUBMITTED BY JENNY:
“I have made a short video of what our apartment looks like with some cameos from our dog Emmett.”

“I am also including a website with a list of places where you can 3D print. One of our friends has a membership at the Artisan's Asylum and has offered to let Micah used his space there so I've included their wiki on the machines they have.”

With one of Netflix's most popular shows ever being all anyone can talk about recently, we wanted to join in on the conversation too. While the topic is a bit more serious this week and we don't make quite as many goofs, this is just as important to teens' lives as any of the other things we talk about, so we hope you'll enjoy a little bit more serious episode and we promise we'll be back with the goofs next week. And we love you.
