Over four years and 99 topics, the Great Pop Culture Debate has made plenty of hot takes with low stakes. In this special episode, we channel “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” as we bring in special guests to discuss the history of the show, share our favorite arguments, and rehash the calls we got totally wrong.

Learn about every episode, from the super-secret Season 0 through the currently released Season 7, before Season 8 begins in fall 2023. A great jumping on point for new listeners, and a celebration of where we’ve been for existing fans of the show.
