We're thrilled to announce Breaking Pod, the latest creative project of the Vernacular Podcast Network. Each week, Zac Crippen of Vernacular Podcast and Josh Goldman of The Popped Cast break down an episode of the TV show. We're interested in Breaking Bad as a thriller, but we're also interested in Breaking Bad as a work of art that helps us see better into ourselves and understand the nature of our own existence. There's no better modern television drama for doing that. So join us as we discuss each plot development and acting performance--the first episode drops soon!Thanks to Evolution of Music for their awesome cover of Dave Porter's theme.
