Mon. May 8: Los Angeles, CA – The Brooker Family POPcast has just announced that Season 2 of the first-ever family-hosted entertainment and pop culture video podcast will launch on May 24, 2023. Hosted by 2-time Emmy Award-winning and Webby Award-winning journalist, actor and comedian Heather Brooker, her husband Chris and their 10-year-old daughter, Channing, this show is the first ever video podcast to bring parents and kids together to talk about entertainment, video games, music, pop culture and more.
This is a family entertainment podcast; it’s not a parenting advice show or children’s entertainment show, it’s a show where a family of three entertaining personalities, all of them in the performing and creative arts, pour over the pop culture current topics and releases. The Brookers have a relatable, unfiltered parenting style and love to share their expertise with lots of laughter. BFP also features guest interviews with your favorite actors, comedians and singers! You can watch the show at brookerfamilypopcast.com and listen on all podcast platforms. Podcasting is not all that the Brooker Family has been working on; Heather Brooker has over 1M followers across her social media, she does stand-up comedy in Los Angeles, and the family hosts events together including this weekend's Great Big Family Play Day. Here they are on NBC L.A.'s California Live talking about the event and some innovative baby gear, and here they are with Grammy Winner Lisa Loeb:
Listen to all of Season 1 of the Brooker Family POPCast wherever podcasts can be heard, and stay tuned for the May 24 launch of Season 2.
