Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.
Michael Sheen as Bill Masters on Masters Of Sex

In the Mom On Pop podcast, Bonney Teti—mother of A.V. Club senior editor John Teti—shares her unfiltered thoughts on the pop culture of the day.

Okay, the headline might overstate matters a bit—after her first encounter with Showtime’s Masters Of Sex, Mom’s takeaway is that the show’s Dr. Masters (Michael Sheen) is a “cold fish.” But she has warm regards for the series nonetheless, including Sheen’s portrayal of St. Louis’ iciest obstetrician. Mom got hooked as she powered through Masters’ occasionally squirm-inducing subject matter, captivated by the humane performances of cast members like Lizzy Caplan and Allison Janney.


Mom also weighs in on Project Runway, which still enjoys her loyal viewership in its 14th season—she watches for all the tears, she explains. Plus, we pick a winner and read some of our favorite stories from our “bad road trip” listener context.

Mom On Pop is available on iTunes, and there’s a podcast RSS feed if you want to subscribe to the show in other apps. Never miss an episode!
