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.

It's intervention time and you know it. Many of us have it: PHONE ADDICTION. And we got your back, even though Nnekay is going to go through heavy withdrawals through out the episode. But first Nnekay and James have a different kind of addiction: binge watching and it is a battle royal between Quantico vs. Homeland vs. Scandal. Also James seems to be quite the socialite these days and witnessed the truth about what happens to a gaggle of girls when they go out clubbing, and who happened to flock towards a gay club: GIRL DOWN! Getting down to business James is going to break down how and why you're addicted to your phone- it's like an addictive casino in your pocket, especially when it comes to your dating apps (aka hookups). Nnekay applauds the social media site Nextdoor because it is FINALLY adding parameters to correct it's users from racially profiling each other! Hooray for change! In this Quizlet Korner Nnekay has much to say about White Feminism especially in regards to Lena Dunham and Amy Schumer. Plus James has your Back to School sex tips!
