About Us

Ponders Over Popcorn is a podcast about movies! Every other week, Dora and Emily talk about a different movie they seen recently, and…ponder, if you will, over the movie’s themes and ideas. They discuss a wide variety of films (and make a wide variety of bad jokes) but always like to try and get at the heart of each movie. At the end of the episode, they explain what “kernel of truth” they took away from the movie they watched.
