100: a grade that almost never graced my high school exams, one of my favorite emojis, an age I will likely not see due to Goldfish crackers and canned dolmas being the foundation of my personal food pyramid, and, last but not least, the number of episodes The Cooler, KQED's weekly pop culture podcast, is about to hit!
Time flies when you're finding deeper meaning in what’s going on in the world of pop culture, sharing quirky history they didn’t teach you in school, and geeking out over interviewing icons like W. Kamau Bell, Matilda star Mara Wilson, the women of Call Your Girlfriend, and RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Bob the Drag Queen!
So how to celebrate such a milestone? My ideal way would be to rent a yacht -- preferably one that Rihanna has made out on -- and invite all you listeners to the Mediterranean to party with us.
But that’s kind of out of our price range right now (maybe something to aim for when we hit 200 episodes?). So we’re going to do the next best thing. We're turning the mic over to you -- our listeners!
Here’s how it’ll work.
Got a nosy question? Need advice? Just want to tell us something? Great! Send along a voice memo featuring your question/problem/comment/profession of love/whatever to firstname.lastname@example.org. You might end up hearing yourself on the show!
We’re also letting you all curate the topics we discuss for that episode, so if there’s something you’ve always wanted us to weigh in on, now is your chance!
But you know what would be really sad though? If no one sent us anything. You don’t want us to Kim Kardashian ugly cry so hard that we can’t continue making the show, right?
So make our dreams come true by contributing a little something to our 100th episode!
