Feedback: Ryan, the director of AMC’s Corporate Communications wrote into the podcast in response to our Spider-Man popcorn mystery argument: “Hey Peter – I heard the podcast yesterday and the discussion about the Spider Man popcorn. I know that sometimes the debate is more fun than the actual answer, but I figured I’d ask around here to get the definitive answer. In case you wanted to know, the flavor (both colors) is Vanilla Kettle Corn.”
