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.

    Jade Goody

    Jade Goody

    It’s January 2007: at least ten years before ‘cancel culture’ will become a part of our everyday life. The world is a less connected place. Twitter is yet to celebrate its first birthday. The iPhone is nothing but a rumour. Yet, we are about to witness cancellation on a global scale. In January, a new series of UK’s Celebrity Big Brother begins. On its third day, Jade Goody, a fan favourite from the civilian Big Brother House, enters. Over the next two weeks, her life changes forever, for a second time. Quite unexpectedly, she triggers an international incident that results in debates in the Houses of Parliament and effigies of her face being burned in India. In just 14 days, her reputation is left in tatters. She goes from the nation’s sweetheart to public enemy. In other words, she is well and truly cancelled.

    Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark

    Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark

    December 20th, 2010. It’s pitch black on-stage at the Foxwoods Theatre in Broadway. Stunt performer Chris Tierney attaches himself to a safety cable, and takes a deep breath. The centre of the stage lifts, creating a ramp. He’s done this many times before. Breathing out, he runs up the ramp and leaps from its edge. Immediately, it’s clear something is wrong. The cable hasn’t gone taut. There’s half a second as he floats in the air, realising that the other end of his safety line is unattached. Then, he’s in freefall, plummeting thirty feet towards the concrete floor of the orchestra pit. He hits the ground with a sickening crunch. Someone screams. The audience is deathly silent. Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark is a cautionary tale...

    Jimmy Carr

    Sometimes, those who get cancelled predict their own fall. They tempt fate, because to risk cancellation usually means to incite infamy. Some look for hatred -  and then brandish it as their weapon. Say or do something abhorrent, endure the criticism, and then cry that they’re under attack from the feral woke mob. But in the case of Jimmy Carr, it’s more complex. Comedy is always a dance with the devil. Sometimes, inevitably, you cross the line. To be a comedian is to be a shapeshifter - from entertainer to polemicist and back again. But then, he crossed a line too far. And the backlash was a stain that wouldn’t come out...

    X factor

    X factor

    “You’ve got 3 minutes to change your life”. This is the sentence that Simon Cowell used as words of encouragement to contestants of television singing contest, X Factor. With its title referring to star quality that you can’t quite put your finger on, the show vows to take ordinary, everyday people to the top of the music industry.  For every rare appearance of a competitor praised as a superstar-in-the-making, there were thousands of wannabes who were mocked, ridiculed, and in some cases, had their entire lives defined by an unsuccessful audition. But it was the show itself that would end up facing the most scrutiny. While allegations of everything from manipulative editing, to fixing of votes would begin to fly like wildfire, X Factor’s demise would ultimately boil down to its power to change someone’s life in just 3 minutes - for better or for worse…

    Abercrombie & Fitch

    Abercrombie & Fitch

    Originally founded in 1892 in New York City, by David T. Abercrombie, the fashion brand started as an outfitter for the elite outdoorsman. By the time we reach the 2000s, American mall culture is everything and Abercrombie & Fitch’s preppy clothes have morphed into the ultimate accessory for a US teen. After all, A&F aren’t just selling their customers apparel. The company's brand image is heavily promoted as a near-luxury lifestyle concept. For many teens desperate to fit in, donning any garment with the brand’s signature moose logo is a quintessential status symbol. But behind the fantasy sold to millions lie many dark truths. And it’s only a matter of time before accusations of racism, illegal employment practices, misogyny, sexual assault and elitism will shatter the “All American” aesthetic we’ve been told to strive for.

    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.

As deep as the average mud puddle

Poorly researched, little if any context established for each story, corny writing and the narration style … yikes. Definitely won’t be subscribing to this.

I like it but please take out the high pitch background music/noise

I enjoy hearing the stories behind being cancelled, but please please take out the high pitch haunting music that overlays the narration. It’s really awful on the ears. Besides that I love it!

Bostonchamp ,

Uncompelling

I just don’t find the concept of this podcast anything more than gossipy and pessimistic.
