This month, Gen Pop — my pop culture podcast with Joanna Robinson — will come to an end.
Sometimes I’ll create a podcast that lasts 10 years (and counting). Other times, a show will last 6 months. Unfortunately, Gen Pop was one of the latter.
Out of all my podcasts, Gen Pop was probably the show that I worked the hardest on and stretched myself the most on. And while it didn’t have the largest audience, it had a really impassioned fan base. I’m so grateful to people who donated to the show and who supported us every step of the way.
The folks at Nerdophiles wrote up this lovely retrospective on the podcast, and it’s awesome:
I’m sad to see Gen Pop go, but happy for the other opportunities to catch Joanna and David still podcasting. Gen Pop truly was one of my favorite podcasts that really had its finger on the pulse of pop culture. It delivered a weekly interesting conversation that was topical and well-informed, often times giving me new insight and perspective.
I’m glad that people got something out of the show. It makes me feel like all the work we put into it was not ill-spent.
