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

Mom On Pop returns (back in its usual Friday slot after jumping around for a few weeks) with a conversation about Naked And Afraid, a reality show that just wrapped up its fourth season on Discovery. Although the premise sounds salaciousā€”a man and a woman are stripped bare and stranded in a remote wilderness for three weeksā€”Naked And Afraid is more Survivorman than Temptation Island. In any case, Momā€™s a fan. ā€œThat crevice sure looks dark,ā€ she raves.


Mom also reviews the Marvel comics Star Wars: Darth Vader and Star Wars: Princess Leia, giving them high marks despite being a bit rusty on her Star Wars lore. We were going to review Mr. Robot, but Mom decided that the show didnā€™t deserve her attention, and she explains why. Plus, we get the conclusion of the latest post office saga and launch a new reader contest!

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