Hello, and welcome to another Popular Table!

This week, in part 1 of the show, our panel of pop culture analysts (Mike, David, Ibi, Felix, and Vicky), look at Godzilla’s new-found Japanese citizenship, the CDFA Fashion Awards, All-New, All-Different Marvel and Kamala Khan’s animated debut.

In part 2 of this week’s show, the gang ask if Caitlyn Jenner is praised for her bravery, or for conforming to the media’s perception of beauty. Following this, they look at the effects of digitization and if they are all positive.

In part 3 of this week’s show, our pop culture panelists look at bullying in fiction, and how fictional characters deal with it.
