Enjoyable conversation, good chemistry, and interesting topics are the formula to a good podcast (IMO) - Y'all have it, so I'm looking forward to hearing more from the Popcast!

Description

Popcorn Culture is brought to you by J and Ben Carlin aka the SuperCarlinBrothers on YouTube. The two are most well known for the The Pixar Theory, Rampant Predictions of your favorite upcoming movies, Harry Potter Trivia Fiends, and for being a pair of man childs. Man children? Men Children. None of those seem right. You get the point. Anyway, they wanted a way to talk more in depth about their theories and BEYOND! And this is their solution.
