Cancel Culture is the hot topic that seems to be in an endless cycle of debate, but that’s not why we’re here. To us, Cancel Culture is often the consequence of your actions, but unfortunately ‘Consequences’ isn’t as catchy.

This new scripted weekly podcast series is your one-stop shop to catch up on the full story of who, what, or where has been cancelled. We’re not here to judge or take ourselves too seriously and while some stories will have complicated themes that will leave us thinking, others will have us laughing out loud. Hosted by Cameron Bernard Jones.

    Jamie Lynn Spears

    Jamie Lynn Spears

    2007 was a hellish year for Britney Spears. It began with the breakdown of her marriage and culminated in a patchy buzzcut, stalking and public humiliation at the hands of the paparazzi, and a bitter custody battle. By the close of the year, she was widely reported to be no longer speaking to her family, an estrangement more significant for the fact that it was Britney’s success that lifted her family out of financial difficulty. The (celestial) stars were clearly not in alignment in 2007 for the Spears family because that same year the other Spears sister, Jamie Lynn,  would face her own crisis in front of the public’s glare. And as Succession so expertly showed, the most scintillating of stories is often those built on blood.

    Blurred Lines

    Blurred Lines

    It’s 2013. Miley Cyrus has dramatically shed her Disney Channel persona with her hit track, Wrecking Ball. Daft Punk are dominating dancefloors worldwide with Get Lucky, and Beyoncé has broken all records by dropping a 14-track album with no advance warning.

    Despite all this, one song looms large over the year - dwarfing all that came before or after it. Its name? Blurred Lines.

    It’s a cultural flashpoint. The court of public opinion spins into overdrive, with the song’s creators Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I., hurled into the dock. Before long, Robin Thicke has become the poster child for provocation. His appearances generate headlines and record-breaking twitter storms, and his name becomes synonymous with sleaze. But who does his controversial cancellation serve – and did he know exactly what he was doing?

    Sinéad O'Connor

    Sinéad O'Connor

    At the beginning of the 90s, mainstream pop belonged to a handful of female artists; Madonna, Whitney and Mariah Carey all owned the airwaves with their provocative posturing and emotive power ballads which dominated the top 40 chart. Also emerging at this time, and striking a match amongst her contemporaries was the Irish singer songwriter Sinéad O’Connor. Sinead O’Connor broke the mould and the mainstream with her reworked version of Princes’ classic ‘Nothing Compares To You’. Her voice and image sent shockwaves around the globe. Coming from an Irish Catholic background, the autonomy over her own body had, up to a point, always been restricted due to the theocracy and dominant religious landscape she grew up in. But being Sinéad O’connor, she wasn’t going to allow that to prevent her from speaking her truth...

    H&M

    H&M

    Like most 21st century corporate crises, this one started with a tweet. On 8 January 2018, New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow took to Twitter to vent at H&M over their choice of model and product on their UK website. The model was Liam Mango, a Black boy. The product was a £7.99 hooded top emblazoned with the slogan ‘coolest monkey in the Jungle’ ‘@hm, have you lost your damned minds?!?!?!”, Charles digitally barked at the second-largest global clothing retailer. Cue the unholiest of backlashes...

    James Charles

    James Charles

    James Charles felt, in a way, entirely original. And of course, for someone at the cutting edge of the internet, his cancellation had to feel unique too. Enter Tati Westbrook, James Charles (full name Dickinson) erstwhile mentor-turned-maker. A stalwart of the online beauty-influencer empire, a perceived slight on her honour led to influencer warfare - untrodden ground for which this conflict paved the way. Long before Oprah’s legendary “were you silent, or silenced” line came to prominence, the question was about Breaking Your Silence. I.E. How James Charles, and his mentor, Tati Westbrook, came to be at loggerheads - and how it unravelled.

    In 2021, a record 493 new people became billionaires – on average there was a new billionaire created every 17 hours. Meanwhile in Britain, over the crisis, the poorest 30% of adults gained an average additional wealth of just £86, compared to £50,000 for the richest 10%. The rich have lined their already deep pockets further, while the poor have only gotten poorer. So, when multi-millionaires chime in with hot takes that essentially shame those on the losing end of wealth inequality for their lack of “success”, it usually doesn’t end well. That’s something reality star Molly-May Hague can attest to after a series of tone-deaf comments that read like the infamous Paris Hilton “Stop Being Poor” t-shirt meme made her public enemy number one...

Disappointingly Shallow

I was initially pulled in by the concept of the show, but there’s little-to-no criticality. Realistically, these are quick 20-minute (more like 15 once you factor in all the ads) gossip sessions during which you listen to a partisan diatribe about why someone was cancelled, with virtually no critical analysis of the situation. It’s a shame because the concept has the potential to be a true deep-dive into so-called ‘cancel culture’ but it’s really missed that opportunity. On a more positive note, the narrator has a fantastic voice for podcasts - very easy on the ear.

Dire.

Latest show filled with ads for business class flights and other drivel before you realise much of the podcast time has been taken up with self promotion and cashing in. Seriously. Seems it’s key audience is no longer wanted while it searches for the listener willing to pay £10k for a flight to NYC. What cost of of living crisis ? Next ‘

2.6 is a bit sad
