The Most Popular Pop Culture Podcasts Right Now, Ranked

List Rules
Only podcasts currently releasing new episodes and covering pop culture topics like shows, comics and film history.

There are so many amazing movies and television shows right now and almost every one has a podcast dedicated to it, so we've put together a list of the top pop culture podcasts streaming new episodes. From podcasts about movies that look behind the scenes at how a film was made to nerdy deep dives on each new episode of a tv show, there's a podcast for anything you're currently bingeing.

Some of these podcasts, like Pop Culture Happy Hour, focus on the new and now when it comes to movie and tv news. Others, like You Must Remember This and Classic Movie Musts, are history podcasts dedicated to examining key moments and films in movie history. But not all pop culture podcasts are about media, old or new. Podcasts like Thors-Kin and #WhoWouldWin focus on nerdy news and comics while Fatal Voyage straddles the genres of true crime and pop culture.

Vote up the current pop culture podcasts you never miss an episode of! And if you think we're forgetting a show, be sure to add it to the list!
