Last month, the latest podcasting effort from the Hawaii couple behind one of most successful podcasts devoted to the TV show “LOST” was launched. It’s a new daily pop culture show called “Popspotting” and it is available at their
Honolulu husband and wife, Ryan and Jen Ozawa, hosts of “The Transmission,” launched “Popspotting” on May 23, exactly one year after “LOST” left the airwaves. As my listeners may know, their “Lost” podcast was my inspiration for launching my own show for “Hawaii Five-0!” Ryan and Jen are friends who helped me with my podcast and I interviewed Ryan when I was in Honolulu last winter as part of my “Hawaiian Blogger Series.” Ryan told us then he was working on the new show and I’m excited to see it has finally launched! You can also subscribe to it on iTunes, of course!
An article on their website describes it, “…instead of devoting over an hour of conversation a week to a single show, “Popspotting” serves up a bite-sized chat every weekday, and covers movies, television, music, books, and much more.”
In their May 31st episode, #59 they chose to review “Hawaii Five-0,” the reboot of the classic cop show on CBS, and NBC’s “Chuck.”
As the description they wrote of this show describes, they “…harbor no illusions that “Five-0″ is a gripping, original cop show, and Jen only watches when she’s in the mood for its particular brand of melodrama. Scott Caan is the standout star, and his chemistry with both Alex O’Loughlin and Claire van der Boom makes for some great scenes. We only wish Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park had more interesting things to do. Still, we’re having fun, and we loved the first season finale.”
So to see how great they are as a podcasting team and their perspective on a show that’s shot in their back yards, check out the full podcast below or at their website!
