Since we are halfway through the year, Nick reveals his lists of the Best and Worst Movies of 2024 so far in this episode. He also welcomes TV critic Dan Fienberg from The Hollywood Reporter, who shares his list of the best TV of the year so far. Nick and Dan discuss the new season of “The Bear,” Amazon’s “Sausage Party,” and “Sunny” starring Rashida Jones.

Then, Esmeralda Leon joins Nick to continue their fun 2000s Pop Culture quiz/tour. They chat about The Pussycat Dolls, the “Twilight” books, and the incredible world of MySpace, featuring everyone’s friend: Tom. They also taste a very delicious, but VERY pickled snack from the UK. [EP260]
