A weekly pop-culture breakdown show based on Jezebel's daily column Dirt Bag. Each week Madeleine Davies and Megan Reynolds dig deep on the shallow industry of celebrity gossip, giving you an inside look at how famous people, publicists, tabloids, and even things like Scientology come together to create the celebrity news you love to hate.
This Is the End
Dirtbag is going on an extended hiatus, to return eventually with something new and fresh and fun, so for the last episode, Madeleine and Megan talk about Elizabeth Holmes, 90 Day Fiance, and some other stories we wanted but were never able to cover.
Cardi B Does What They Say She Can’t
You know what we’ve somehow never done a podcast about? The meteoric rise of everyone’s favorite rapper/Instagrammer/joy bomb, Cardi B! Joining us to discuss her career and power are Jezebel Culture Editor Clover Hope and Deadspin Managing Editor Samer Kalaf, who Cardi once flirted with on camera.
The Agony and Ecstasy of Reality TV Dating
WE’RE JOINED BY SPECIAL GUEST AND CO-HOST JOANNA ROTHKOPF!!!!!!!!!!
Peach Pit After Dirt
Before Riverdale, Gossip Girl, and The O.C., there was Beverly Hills, 90210, an Aaron Spelling nighttime soap about sexy teens (played by very old adults) living in America’s wealthiest zip code. This week, Madeleine and Megan take a break from their shifts at the Peach Pit to look back at the series, the cast drama, the reboots, and where everyone is now.
Hester Prynne of Calabasas: the Story of Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson
This week, Kardashian scholar Mariah Smith joins us all the way from foggy Londontown to discuss the alleged affair between Cavs bench warmer Tristan Thompson, the father of Khloe Kardashian’s daughter, and Jordyn Woods, Kylie Jenner’s best friend and unofficial co-parent to her daughter, Stormi.
Awards season is nearly, finally over and to discuss the highs (?) and lows (??) of the movies, people, and things nominated for the Academy Awards, Maddie and Megan are joined once more by Rich Juzwiak, senior writer and staff curmudgeon, to discuss what we will even happen on Sunday and WHY.
i am so bummed
this was my favorite podcast and i still think about it and what madeleine and megan’s hot takes on today’s dirt would be . i miss you guys ! please come back .
Parting is such sweet sorrow.
First the toast, now dirtcast, what’s next???
But know that I’ve enjoyed it all. Proud of the effort you put it in to make it and thank you for the going away episode and not ghosting is.
Funny and smart
I love this podcast and it’s pretty much the only one I listen to that literally makes me laugh out loud. I was so sorry to hear this was the last episode for a while. And it was even more disappointing when Madeline and Megan revealed their love for my #1 guilty pleasure “90 Day Fiancé.” I can’t wait to hear what comes next for this show.
