First and foremost, make sure to get your pop culture questions in to us by dropping us a line with as many questions as you wish for us to answer about pop culture. You can do so on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or email. We’ll compile them, answer them, and give you a shout in an episode of the podcast in the coming weeks!
For today’s Taking It Down, Donovan recounts his weekend of boating in Texas for a particular parade (1:12) before all three guys chime in on covid (2:03). Adam updates everyone on rumors and news from the casting of The Challenge (2:57), so if you’re spoiler adverse, skip that section to news about the movie Tenet and how drive-in movies are the new thing all over again (10:47).
Donovan gives a deep dive into the story, warts and all, of author H.P. Lovecraft (15:55) before they discuss the 2019 Nic Cage movie Color Out of Space, which is based on a Lovecraft short story (26:58).
After the break, the guys give their thoughts on the third and fourth episodes of the HBO show Lovecraft Country (42:50) and wrap the podcast with some spooky tales from a real Chicago bar (1:01:20).
