A Fanboy and a Know-It-All Talk Pop Culture
About This Show
Two guys -- an intelligent fanboy who happens to be a professional movie reviewer and an overeager, unqualified, and complete wackjob of a know-it-all -- take on a world saturated in movies, television, and myriad pop culture tropes.

Episode 7 // A Fanboy and a Know-It-All Talk Star Wars at 40 (and Brad Pitt)
Star Wars turns 40 on May 25, 2017!
To observe four decades of Star Wars dominating and shaping the cultural and cinematic landscape, Fanboy (Paul Asay) and Know-It-All (Jake Roberson) bring a bonafide Star Wars geek -- Plugged In Senior Editor Adam Holz -- on to the show to talk all things Star Wars. From first memories of the franchise to nostalgia to the behind-the-scenes origin of Star Wars staples like Ewoks, it's an episode chock full of laughter and reflection (and more laughter... and more reflection).
Elsewhere, Brad Pitt frolics through America's national parks, a new dinosaur gets a pop culture-inspired name, and someone walks 200 miles to hatch a Charizard in Pokemon GO.
