Happy New Year! Clocking in at over 90 minutes, we hope episode 205 of Culture Doom makes up for our holiday absence. Speaking of the holidays, 205 kicks off with accounts of our Christmas and New Year’s festivities and thoughts on the post-holiday blues. This includes exploring some other countries’ traditions. Well really just Spain… and really just the strange Spanish preoccupation with Christmas Poop.
Following our usual banter, we take time to give an elongated SPOILER review of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, just as it surpasses Avatar to become the highest grossing film ever in the United States. Yes, we recorded this two weeks ago. Yes it was… well… slightly more topical then. BUT IT’S FINE. EVERYTHING IS FINE. THIS WAS OUR PLAN ALL ALONG.
