With police using entrapment on gay dudes having sex in a public park in Washington DC, at what point does a "raid" start to feel like something more insidious? Then, Guy Branum -- comedian, writer and all-around shining beacon of light, hope and wisdom -- joins the guys to talk about the issues: hypocrisy in politics, Karamo Brown normalizing Sean Spicer, and what is and isn't defined as GOOD wedding cake. And finally, when it comes to self care, find out what Brent, Eliot and H. Alan do to find inner peace. But don't be surprised when The Golden Girls comes up more than once.

**Warning - this episode contains lots of tears** For the final episode of Pop Rocket, the panel convene to give listeners one last All About, one last Jam, and they look back at the past four and a half years, and all the various milestones they’ve shared with one another and their listeners while doing the show--marriages, deaths, birth, book deals, finding a new home, and so many other memories. It’s raw. It’s wonderful. In addition, we’ll hear phone calls from listeners and friends of the show about what Pop Rocket meant to them. Plus, Guy shares the best abortion joke he’s ever heard. Lastly, Wynter and Karen reveal their new, upcoming podcast, and how you can stay in touch with them beyond Pop Rocket.

**Angelenos: Tonight (May 17th) at 7pm Guy and Karen will have a conversation about Why Karen Carpenter Matters at Book Soup in West Hollywood.** In this penultimate episode, the Pop Rocket panel seeks guidance from The Oracle of LA, Amanda Yates Garcia. Each panelist pulls a card from the Oracle’s tarot deck, and gets an individual reading. What’s next for everyone? The answer’s in the cards. Also, Karen Tongson tells us about her phone call with Elizabeth Warren this week. Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren called Karen Tongson on the phone. Personally. Listen to hear how it went down. If you were as impressed with Amanda’s reading as the panel was, you can subscribe to her podcast Strange Magic. Lastly, if anyone wants to ask the panelists for advice--about anything!--you’ve got less than 24 hours to call and leave a message with Guy’s mom: (530) 237-4108 That's My Jam Margaret: Weyes Blood (Natalie Mering) -A Lot’s Gonna Change Guy: Carly Rae Jepsen - Cut to the Feeling Karen: Vampire Weekend (wth Danielle Haim) - We Belong Together Song: IN: 1:38 - Fade 2:19 Amanda: Alice Coltrane -Govinda Jai Jai With Guy Branum, Karen Tongson, Margaret Wappler, Wynter Mitchell-Rohrbaugh, Amanda Yates Garcia, The Oracle of LA Produced and edited by Laura Swisher for MaximumFun.org.
