The Jake John Howard Drink with Jake John Howard (@jakejohnhoward)

She Didn't Funk With Me 'Til I Got It Poppin'
1:22:36The original idea for this episode was a game - which, yes, Sol (@solthompson), Michael (@_smithstagram), and John (@johnhogeboom) eventually play - but conversations involving Funko Pops managed to derail basically the entire episode. So, here's what I'll do: I'm going to do quick descriptions for both. The boys are back, discussing Freddy Funko, Leslie Knope, and obviously, the best investment money can make: Funko Pops! Join Sol, Michael, and John as they discuss cornering the market, best investments, and grading their rarest Funko Pops on this episode of the Pop of Kings Popcast!It's time for some AI-generated fun, as Sol, Michael, and John link up to play "That game Sol talked to us about a couple of weeks ago that he said he wanted to play, but he needed all three of us to be available and John was kind of busy searching for a job." The rules are simple: Sol prompted the world's premiere, non-sentient (we hope) artificial intelligence with some questions about popular fashion items and/or brands, and John and Michael play to see who can break through the technology-powered veil to score points and prove their knowledge!It's an absolute blast of an episode - which includes a spit take - and we hope you enjoy listening as much as we did recording.
