In this ninth episode of “Elton Jim” Turano’s “CAPTAIN POD-TASTIC,” Jim Turano examines the latest pop culture craze — Pokemon Go!, which, literally overnight, has taken the country and the world by storm. In addition, “Elton Jim” shares his latest “encounter” with some racoons that recently took up residence in his garbage can and his garage. During the expanded segment of “Pop Culture Club” with Mick Kayler and podcast producer, Mike Heidemann, the three discuss and dissect the Pokemon Go! phenomenon, how it started and how long it might last — as it becomes Summer 2016’s “Ice Bucket Challenge” fad. Naturally, “Elton Jim” doesn’t understand all the fuss, and of course, can’t play the game — because he can’t download the app on his flip phone.
