The lines between pop culture and counterculture have a tendency to blur, collide, and cross over each other. Sometimes cyclically as what was once old becomes new again, and sometimes born out of the natural flow of nature and time.
What connects these dots, and just how have these niches grown and evolved as technology grew with them? This is the question that continued to grow between PR powerhouse Chrissy Newton and badass media swiss army knife Marie Nicola, the hosts of Alt.Pop.Repeat! Both have been strongly connected to Pop Culture through their work and social media, while still finding themselves strongly connected to various counterculture ideas that upon further research, they found reached much further then once previously thought.
This is where the idea for Alt.Pop.Repeat was born, the universe had brought these 2 powerhouse creatives together so that they could combine their years of experience like Voltron and take on all sorts of topics, like UFO’s, what is punk anymore, and astrology among many other topics with various pop culture celebrities, influencers and commentators.
So far in season one they have featured the likes of music legend Bif Naked, youtuber Matthew Santoro, filmmaker Jeremy Corbell, and Canadian media icon George Strombolopolous, with more amazing guests on the way as they aren’t even half way through the season.
Marie Nicola and Chrissy Marie join the DTP to tell us about Alt.Pop.Repeat! Along the way we end up discussing covid, aliens, cartoons, nostalgia, awkward teenage phases, tik tok, and all sorts of other counter culture goodness!
