Welcome to our whimsical adventure of idioms and other turns of phrase. Each week, we delve into the origins of phrases to find out how they came into the English language. We tell the story of how the phrase got from its beginnings to where it is today. Shauna and Dan are two big nerds, so expect some geek culture references, random trivia facts, and loads of laughs!
 
We honor the quirky( outcast, weird, "different") pop culture characters in TV and Film and other areas. We also try to apply social science to our discussion. The views expressed by guests on this podcast are their own, and do not necessarily represent the views of Quirky Pop or it's host.
 
From two movie obsessed brothers comes the ultimate celebration of cinema and the largely pointless yet magnificent joy of making lists about it. Opinions, Top 10’s, random facts and anecdotes all drawn from the brains of men who can quote Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars, Zulu, The Princess Bride and yes, Midnight Run from beginning to end. Tell your friends, tell people you are slightly indifferent to, tell people you actively despise and remember, there’s no such thing as a guilty pleasure.
