Welcome to our Adventures in Pop Culture. We are, quite obviously, obsessed with pop culture, and we publish personal essays. That means in these pages you’ll find opinion, news and reviews, of course, but also reminiscences and explorations. We want to explore beyond the critique and delve into what pop culture really means to us as contributors and consumers. Everything is subjective; this site is full of bias.

The Adventure started when Lauren was procrastinating and remembering her previous life as a pop culture reviewer. She missed it – like, loads. She invited in her husband and podcast host Chris, and that’s how we got here.

Over time, more will join the adventure. For now, read more about the adventurers below, and click on the links to hear more of their ranty opinions. None of us get paid for this; we’re in it for the glory.

Meet the adventurers
