If We Gave Out Oscars

Standard
Original air date: Monday, February 23, 2015
Episode Description:

We’re all caught up in Oscar Fever! Of course, if WE were in charge, things might look a little different. Your Pop Conscious pals, Malayna and Stacy, will not only discuss their Oscar-related opinions, but will also create their own categories and criteria, and dole out virtual awards of their own imaginary design! Join in the fun and maybe you’ll even come out a winner.

Malayna’s Tweets and Notes from before the show: but LISTEN for Stacy’s great Pop Conscious Oscar Awards!
