Hosts:  Cameron Esposito, Rhea Butcher, and Ricky Carmona
Presented by the Maximum Fun Network

I really enjoy movie review podcasts.  But the podosphere is clogged with them, and most of them, while fine, often boil down to the same thing:  White dudes arguing about Star Wars.  “Wham, Bam, Pow!” is something a bit different.
Hosted by comedian Cameron Esposito, along with her fiancé Rhea Butcher and Ricky Carmona, it is a movie podcast with nary a dude-bro in sight.  The hosts have a different perspective on ‘dick flicks’ like “Interstellar” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” than your typical podcast.  In addition to being refreshing, insightful and hilarious, the hosts tackle issues like gender and race representation in Hollywood.
In addition to reviewing a film each episode, the trio discusses movie news and includes segments such as movie snack recommendations and making fictional movie pitches, which are great, although not quite as sharp as Disasterpiece Theatre.
Wham Bam Pow is a smart, funny movie review podcast that will change the way you look at movies.  It is a part of the Maximum Fun network, and can be downloaded from iTunes or your preferred podcatcher.
