Join us for the second ever SECRET EPISODE of Pop Culture Role Call! Once again it's Collin and Wesley's (and Lilah's) secrets that have been revealed, this time in S04E02 of our podcast. Same as last time, this episode was recording before Collin's co-hosts figured him out. Thanks for listening!

Feb 2, 2023

Welcome to season 4 episode 2 of Angel! The goddess Cordelia spoils a secret because....she can do whatever the hell she wants. So shut up. But while she floats around in heaven, or wherever she is, Angel meets a cat burglar with magic hands and kissy lips. Too bad she "kills" Gunn. Thanks for listening!

Jan 26, 2023

Welcome to the first episode of Angel season 4, folks! Wes dredges Angel off the bottom of the ocean with the "help" of your friendly neighborhood throat slitter. Meanwhile, Gunn and Fred are holding things down as best they can. But, money is tight and Angel's progeny is up to no good. Thanks for listening!

Jan 19, 2023

Welcome to the Angel season 3 wrap up! Thank you to all of the lovely listeners who submitted questions. We rambled too much and definitely didn't have time to get to all of them. Tune in on Jan 28th at 1pm central time for our monthly live stream and we will take some time to answer them live. Don't worry, we will still be watching a full episode and doing a live podcast recording. Thanks for listening!

Jan 12, 2023

Season 3 is in the bag, folks! Unfortunately, we seem to be heading into season 4 a few characters light of a full roster. Keith and Gruu are walking off into the sunset. Cordi is some kind of transcendent deity. Angel is trapped in a box underwater.... I sure hope Gunn and Fred have this locked down! Thanks for listening and remember to submit questions for next week's season 3 wrap-up episode.

Jan 5, 2023

Welcome to season 3 episode 21 of Angel! Connor and his biological father are still trying to find a way to connect. Turns out, they both LOVE killing. What a relief! Meanwhile, Wes is getting courted by Wolfram and Hart and something might be wrong with Gru. That's what we get for messing with portals I guess. Thanks for listening!

Dec 29, 2022

Hello and welcome to Angel season 3 episode 20! Welp, Connor is already back it seems. I guess the "impossible to access" dimension was more of a "pretty difficult to access" dimension. Can father and son bury the hatchet? Preferably not in the father's back. Meanwhile, Lila courts Weasley with some old books (swoon). Thanks for listening!

Dec 22, 2022

Welcome to season 3 episode 19 of Angel! A big ol' tear in reality appears in the hotel, driving the phantasmal slug infestation crazy. Wesley is still flying sad-solo wishing he didn't care he was out of the loop. Good thing Gunn has his Fred's back and is willing to talk to the "traitor" for a quick assist. Thanks for listening!

Dec 15, 2022

It's season 3 episode 18 this week and we have a full house (minus Wesley). Cordi and Gruu are back from their vacation and trying to piece the situation together. Meanwhile, Gunn's "deal with the devil" finally comes back to haunt him. Is his relationship with Fred strong enough to survive the turmoil? Thanks for listening!

Dec 8, 2022

Welcome to season 3 episode 17 of Angel! Cordi....well, I hope she is having fun out there sippin' cocktails at the beach. The rest of us? The rest of us are doing about as poorly as possible. Luckily, Producer Brian steps in to give a voice to Gunn! So, that's a positive. Thanks for listening!

Dec 3, 2022

Welcome to the first ever SECRET episode of Pop Culture Role Call! Collin and James sit down to talk about Wesley's recent revelations. These secrets were exposed in the most recent main episode (S03E16). This episode was recorded before he was found out! Thanks for listening and we hope you enjoy it.

Dec 1, 2022

Welcome to season 3 episode 16 of Angel! Collin gets caught in a big ol' lie this week. But, was the lie justified given the whole "The father will kill the son" prophecy? It doesn't seem to have helped a whole awful lot. Maybe Cordi has some helpful insights... wherever she is. Thanks for listening!

Nov 24, 2022

It's season 3 episode 15 of Angel this week, y'all! Cordi and Wes couldn't have had a different episode if they tried. Cordi doesn't have an episode at all now that we mention it. But Wes? Wes has had better days and could really use a hug. Instead, he gets an earthquake. Thanks for listening!

Nov 17, 2022

It's season 3 episode 14 of Angel this week! Dang, this group went from no love triangles to multiple love triangles in a VERY short amount of time. All of this is even further complicated by the addition of another (slightly taller) goofy, brooding, OTP hot-man. Let's see if Angel can suppress his inadequacy complex and focus on his budding fatherhood. Thanks for listening!

Nov 10, 2022

Welcome to Angel season 3 episode 13! It's "will they, won't they" all over the dang place this week. Fred is unknowingly caught in a love triangle with Wes and Gunn, while Cordi and Angel are stuck in a love triangle via ghostly possession. Long story short, lots of kissing. But, what's it all for at the end of the day? Did we kiss any solutions into the world? Thanks for listening!

Nov 3, 2022

Thie week join the crew as we delve into the profit maximization of paranormal investigations. Join us as we debate whether Angel is more reputable coiffed or uncoiffed and if Connor could afford Notre Dame.

Oct 27, 2022

Welcome to season 3 episode 11 of Angel! Unlike most Angel episodes, this isn't an Angel episode... it's a Cordi episode! After a brutal vision almost kills her, Cordi ends up in an out of body experience. Can she get back in the body? Come find out. Thanks for listening!

Phew, 300 episodes. We can't believe how many laughs and tears were contained in those episodes and we can't wait for the next 300. We also want to thank YOU, our loyal listeners would have supported us all these years and without which this could not have been possible. As a thank you, we give you what we have threatened for almost as long as we've been doing this show...FAN FICTION (kind of). Your favorite hosts and producers joined together to record an RPG one-shot set in the Buffy universe, complete with a perilous Jenga cough Dread tower. We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did making it!

You can find a copy of Dread, the system we used, here: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product_info.php?products_id=83854

Oct 20, 2022

Welcome to season 3 episode 10! Angel is in full dad/mama bear mode this week and doing his best in a wild situation. Not many new fathers need to deal with the threat of demons interested in "baby bone soup". Though, he could have an easier time of it if he just let his friends help. It takes a village, sir. Thanks for listening!

P.S. the special episode celebrating our 300th will be out later this week due to technical difficulties. Thanks for being patient!

Oct 13, 2022

Welcome to Angel season 3 episode 9. This is the one with a baby!!! Darla finally gives "birth" and it's a boy. Why did I put "birth" in quotation marks? Listen and find out. We can all get together at Caritas tomorrow and talk about it, right? Thanks for listening!

Oct 6, 2022

It's Angel season 3 episode 8 this week! Welcome to baby drama headquarters, folks. Turns out it is a baby, unless the ultrasound was lying. That said, the specifics of said baby are still a mystery. Can Angel and Darla stay on the same page long enough to get a grip on the situation? If not, I know a vampire cult that's looking to adopt the little miracle. Thanks for listening!

Sep 28, 2022

Welcome to season 3 episode 7 of Angel! Anyone tired of talking about how, when, where, and with who Angel can/can't have sex? Anyone?... Bueller? Well, good. Because Angel is a zaddy now and his...kid(?) is on the way. Maybe to end all life. Maybe to poop and scream. Nobody knows and the show won't clarify. Thanks for listening!

Sep 22, 2022

Three podcasters walk into a room and only one knew it was a trap. This is a bit of a rough one gang. Join us as we slowly put the peices together of the plot.

Sep 15, 2022

Hello and welcome to Angel season 3 episode 5! Who are these texan strangers claiming to be Fred's parents? Fred never mentioned having parents. They must be demons, or eldritch horrors, or Wolfram plants...... something, but definitely not Fred's supportive, loving parents that's for sure. Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this terrible and dark mystery. Thanks for listening!

Sep 8, 2022

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 4 of Angel! Or, wait...is this Angel? Something seems off about our lead. I get a distinct "this is a body swap episode" vibes from him, but I'm sure it's nothing. Let's just hope this "nothing" doesn't ruin his credibility at the workplace. Thanks for listening!
