Podcast – The Pop Culture Hour with Julia & Kimberley: Episode 11 – Pilots

Well, all of August went by in a freezing cold blur and we just couldn’t get out from under our nice, warm blankets to get a podcast done. But we have a good reason! We were busy prepping for episode eleven by watching a bunch of pilot episodes!


Kimberley and I wanted to watch the pilot episodes of critically acclaimed shows and cult hits to see how they hold up. Some of these shows were new to one or both of us (The Wire, Breaking Bad), and some of them were new to just me (Roswell) or to Kimberley (The Americans). We also rewatched some of our favourite shows from the nineties to see just how dated they were, which was a lot of fun. So much bad fashion! So many interesting hair styles! So all that TV viewing kept us pretty busy. You know how it is – Netflixing it up, trying to clear everything on the Foxtel box, dabbling in a little Fetch TV. Keeps a couple of pop culture loving gals busy these days.

This was a really fun little experiment, and it’s made me want to revisit some shows that I haven’t watched in a reeeeeeaaallllly long time for nostalgia’s sake, plus it’s introduced me to a couple of really great shows which is even better! We both had a ton of fun discussing the pilots, and we’d love to know which TV shows had pilots that got you from the get-go, or took a little longer to pull you in. Even better, go back and watch the pilot from your favourite nineties show and see how daggy/amazing it is!

Our podcast is now available on iTunes under Julia & Kimberley’s Pop Culture Hour, and it’s FREE! So download, listen, love, and go back to iTunes to rate it! Share the love, people, share the love.

Until next time!

This month’s podcast was a fun one! It’s all about fierce female characters and why we love them. These are the women who are smart, sassy, and unafraid to follow their gut and fight for what they believe in. They don’t wield a stake, or have a super cool spy get-up, but they kick ass… Continue reading ->

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.

It’s almost the end of 2014, so it’s only fitting for Kimberley and I to talk about our top 5 movies and TV shows watched in 2014. We both had very different lists, so it was great to compare notes on our top picks for the year. We also discuss our favourite earworms, most of… Continue reading ->

Podcast – The Pop Culture Hour with Julia and Kimberley: EP01


So, a while ago, maybe at the end of last year or earlier this year, I started listening to a few podcasts. Usually about things like TV and film, but mostly just general chit chat ones. I kept thinking “This is so cool, just a few people sitting around, talking about stuff they like and… Continue reading ->
