The Thrill: Talking nostalgia with Prozzak, and feminist films

Maclean’s pop-culture podcast takes on nostalgia’s reign in pop culture with James Bryan of 2000s pop band Prozzak, and more!


This week, on Maclean’s pop-culture podcast—Adrian Lee, Emma Teitel and Julia De Laurentiis Johnson—we look at this moment for nostalgia in pop culture. Why is there so much of it? And is it a bad thing? To talk about it, we brought in an artist who triggered a lot of nostalgia for our hosts: James Bryan, perhaps best known as Milo of the 2000s Canadian pop duo Prozzak. Then, we’ll talk about Mad Max: Fury Road and Pitch Perfect 2. What worked—and what didn’t—in these movies receiving plenty of praise for their feminist bona fides?
