Samm Levine Pop My Culture Podcast

Cole, Vanessa and special guest Samm Levine (“Freaks and Geeks,” “Inglourious Basterds”) talk Oscars, unobtainium, dancing Buzz Aldrin, measurement beans, Paris rooftops and Vanessa’s unhealthy obsession with Zac Efron.

Let us know what you think in the comments (that’s like a modern day “suggestion box” for you old timers. But hey, listening to a “podcast” is pretty modern. Way to go! You can DO THIS!)

Freshly Popped



Samm Levine, Vanessa Ragland, Cole Stratton

    Inspired by the podcast (and, since I’m probably not gonna get the chance to be on it,) I wanted to share my own concert/R rated movie firsts…

    Concert: The first one I was taken to by my parents was more than likely The Statler Brothers. Ironically, I still enjoy them today. The first one I went to by myself was Billy Joel on the Innocent Man tour. Still one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.

    R rated movie: Other than the ones I snuck into the living room to watch on HBO after Mom & Pop went to bed (I’m looking at you, Morgan Fairchild’s “The Seduction”,) the first one I negotiated to see in the theater was Beverly Hills Cop.

    Big fun guys…thanks for letting me play along.

    Cole and Vanessa Strike gold! Awesome!!! Anytime I can hear a Paul Riser/ Aliens reference I’m all set! LOL Cole, I’ll be playing your tune Friday and pushing all my listeners (all 6 of them *rimshot*)to listen to this podcast!

    Love it guys! You made an aging obscure refernce aficionado proud, keep it up…

    Pretty sure that I’m in love with Vanessa, but Cole’s pretty cool too.

    Amazing. But next time you bitches go to Paris without me you will die. You know how much I love ‘tards (uni), being naked, and snails. ass.

    This hour was jam-packed, filled to the brim with entertainment and fun. It’s the start of something wonderful surely. Vanessa’s voice is absolutely lovely and her Efron admiration is hilarious. And hearing Cole say “Stay out of it, Nick Lachey” will always make my day. And Samm just knows his stuff and was great of course. And I told all my nerdy girlfriends about it and one already downloaded this one. PMC cheerleader, check out my pom poms!

    Thanks for all the awesome comments guys! Can’t wait to keep poppin. And my new motto is, “every show we do is one show closer to the show in which I interview Zac Efron.” It’s a clunky motto, but I have to start somewhere.

    Yeah, guys, thanks much for listening! We’re excited for all the episodes to come! (look for one next week on Tuesday or Wednesday). I have a feeling we’ll get Zac for episode 100, when Vanessa is well into her Cougar phase.

    I too have an unhealthy obsession with Zac Efron, Vanessa!!!! I just am so happy that he is over 18 so I don’t feel creepier than I already do.

    “Unobtainium” So evil, Cole. Evil.

    Every body admits that life is not very cheap, however different people require money for various stuff and not every one earns big sums money. So to receive good loans or just bank loan would be a correct way out.
