About the show

We Pop Draft pop-culture, just like the mock drafts of sports fans, but we don't draft athletes, we draft everything else.

The rules of The Pop Draft are simple, we draw for the pick order, we select our teams in a serpentine style and we create our lineup. We're creating lineups of movies, comics, music, games, toys, televisions, celebrities, cereals, animals... you name it. As for the picks that were close to getting drafted but didn’t make the cut, we’ll throw in some honorable mentions for them at the end. Those honorables then become a pool that add/drops can be selected from. Throw in trades and steals for drama, and you have yourself an official Pop Draft. Who’s lineup is the best? That’s up to you, the listener.

Every week Drew, James and Andy mock draft a 7 man team comprised of their favorite people, places or things. We draft everything from cereal to serial killers, and all topics in between. Listen to find out if any of their dream teams match your own. Listen to hear news and details about the world of pop-culture. Listen to get turned on to some fun and amazing content being pushed to us in a world of ever-expanding entertainment services.
