Welcome to Popculturology. It’s a newsletter about pop culture.

To be specific, Popculturology focuses on movie and television news, trailers, the box office. I’ll also share what my thoughts on the movies and TV shows I’ve been watching, cool stories that I’ve read, and other fun pop culture items I’ve discovered.

On top of all that, Popculturology publishes Deep SNL Thoughts, a special edition after each new of Saturday Night Live, breaking down that episode.

Popculturology is free to read. You don’t have to subscribe, but I’d love it if you did. It’s the easiest way to guarantee you won’t miss an edition.

Who Am I?

I once ran a website called Popculturology. It covered pop culture. I also wrote for TV.com before they disappeared. Between those two ventures (and Twitter), I’ve been writing about pop culture — Star Wars, the MCU, How I Met Your Mother, SNL — for over a decade.

I’ve resurrected Popculturology over here on Substack, just in case Whatshisface blows up Twitter and I no longer have a place to offer my thoughts on pop culture.

When Do I Publish?

Popculturology currently publishes on Mondays and Thursdays. Deep SNL Thoughts publishes on Sunday after a new episode of SNL has aired.

Both editions of the main newsletter cover the things you love — pop culture news, movie trailers, what I’ve been watching, what I’ve been reading and anything else fun I’ve found online.

The Monday edition of the newsletter also looks at the weekend’s box office numbers.

What if you don’t want ‘Deep SNL Thoughts’ or only ‘Deep SNL Thoughts’?

I’d hate to lose a subscriber because they’re not interested in receiving every edition of Popculturology. Maybe you don’t care about SNL. Maybe you only care about SNL. By going to your settings and selecting “Manage subscription,” you can check on/off what you want to receive.

Whoa, it’s a chance to SUBSCRIBE again! This is definitely the universe sending you a sign that you need Popculturology in your life.
