The One About…Hollywood Scandals, Papa John’s, Justice League Predictions, & Grunt1bComics with Chad Cavanuagh

We know we've been gone for what seems like forever, we know while we've been gone Hollywood has gone to sh*t, and we know that while we've been gone GEOSTORM was nearly #1 at the box office....but all that stops now....




And we're coming back from break better than ever, one of us is even married now! (yeah we couldn't believe it either) There's no better way to come back from break than with one of the best friends of the Pop Not Soda show, Chad Cavanaugh from Grunt1bComics! Chad accompanies us as we catch up on everything we missed during break: Astros winning one of the mose popular World Series in recent memory, Papa John's becoming the official pizza of the Alt Right, and the flood gates breaking on sexual harassment, misconduct, and assault cases in Hollywood. 

With the release of DC's Justice League looming, we all weigh in on our predictions for the film and its success (if any) at the box office. And the guys catch up with Chad, finding out what it felt like to finish his first two comic book series, what he's currently working on, how he'll be when his comics eventually get adapted to film, and what the future of Grunt1bComics has in store!

Make sure to check out this episode and follow Chad and Grunt1bComics at Grunt1bComics across all social media platforms.
