100% PURE ADRENALINE. We’re back and we’re finally tackling a topic we’ve been wanting to talk about for a long time: Point Break, which is having its 30th anniversary this year.

episode 164: FFR 164: Fame and Fandom

On this topical episode of the podcast we’re tackling fame, celebrity culture, and fandom. While celebrity is nothing new, the modern landscape of social media creates both new avenues to fame, as well as new opportunities for fans to access their favorite stars and content creators.
