The Pop Culture Hour with Julia & Kimberley – Episode 8: Things We Did Not Finish


After a bit of a long time between podcasts, we’re back, baby! This month, Kimberley and I chatted about the things we did not finish. You know those books that everyone raves about and you can’t get through the first three chapters? Or that movie that is making box office history so you watch it, but you just sit there the whole time going “…eh.” Or that TV show where the characters just become so bloody annoying and the storyline becomes so ridiculously implausible that you aren’t even hate-watching it, you’re just hating it outright? Yeah, those things.

We both had things we just couldn’t get through and would like those hours of our lives back. We tried and tried, but ultimately we Just. Couldn’t. Finish. And interestingly, we both had a few things we couldn’t do that the other loved! But what we really want to know (after you’ve listened to the podcast, of course), is what couldn’t you finish? What book made you want to set your eyeballs on fire because it would be more interesting than the text on the page? What TV show made you yawn over and over again? What movie did you have to switch off after the first fifteen minutes (or walk out of the cinema)? Do tell, dear listeners – no judgement, I promise.

You can download episode 8 of The Pop Culture Hour with Julia & Kimberley right on Podbean. Listen and share the love!

Until next time,

    I cannot finish Outlander. It’s killing me. It’s not that it’s terrible, it’s just looooong.

    Also I got halfway through Gone Girl, skipped forward to see the ending, then never went back. I’ve see the movie now so I doubt I’ll finish the book.

    Nat, which part in Outlander are you up to? I also wanted to give up on it but kept pushing through, and I found there was a point in the story where things started to move along quickly. She still needs an editor like whoa though.

    I guessed the ending of Gone Girl about halfway through the book, but I kept reading. Don’t know if I’ll ever see the film though, the characters were all such assholes.
