    Kelly Ripa's Aversion to Chewing Foods Is Bumming TikTok Out (feat. Carley and Mercedes)

    Kelly Ripa's Aversion to Chewing Foods Is Bumming TikTok Out (feat. Carley and Mercedes)

    Who’s the worst person you know to come out against Roe v. Wade being overturned? Whoever it is, scratch that, because the answer is almost certainly OJ Simpson, who came out on Twitter to give his…extremely un-asked-for opinion on the topic. This week on DLTF, we talk terrible men who have surprising opinions on the Dobbs decision, as well as the TikTok internal shower trend (spoiler: it made ½ of us poop), abortion Venmos, movie theaters we’ve gotten kicked out of, Horace the naked dancing man, and creepy-ass What I Eat In a Day videos. We also welcome Carley and Mercedes, the OnlyFans influencer couple who may or may not be sisters, to talk about their DNA test journey, what their moms think, and whether or not they’re doing this for clout.For more information on where to donate to abortion fund resources please visit this website:

    Justin Timberlake Is Having His Matthew Morrison Moment (feat. Rebecca Jennings)

    Justin Timberlake Is Having His Matthew Morrison Moment (feat. Rebecca Jennings)

    This week on the internet, a lesbian OnlyFans creator couple found out they may be sisters, a TikToker is very publicly horny for Steve Irwin’s himbo son, and Justin Timberlake continues his downward spiral into cultural irrelevancy with his viral Beat Ya Feet dance (and proves that JC was the best NSyncer all along). Plus, Ej discusses her trip to VidCon (culminating in a hearty dose of petty theft!) and Vox senior correspondent Rebecca Jennings visits to discuss how the Minions became a symbol for the proleteriat. Steve Carell could have written Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, but Karl could never have written Minions: The Rise of Gru.Links we refer to in this episode:

    Chris Evans Is Single-handedly Revitalizing Boston’s Tourism Industry (feat. FaveTikToks420)

    Chris Evans Is Single-handedly Revitalizing Boston’s Tourism Industry (feat. FaveTikToks420)

    We at DLTF have gone on record as being distinctly anti-Boston on this podcast. It’s a bad city with awful bars, terrible food and racist energy. And yet, Chris Evans on the promo tour for Lightyear is making a generation of millennial women want to pack their bags and move to Beantown. What kind of witchcraft is this? Also discussed: Camila Morrone reaches her Leo girlfriend expiration date, why Elvis is canceled (again) (also, exactly how many pounds of poop he had in his colon when he died), why pandas probably aren’t real, and why TikTok is trying to get you to start selling feet pics on FeetFinder. (Girl, don’t do it, it’s not worth it.) Feat. Leia Jospe, the mastermind behind our favorite repository of cringe content, FaveTikToks420. Happy Camila Morrone turns 25 day to all!

    Nick Cannon Is Having the Ultimate Feral Girl Summer (feat. @__mull)

    Nick Cannon Is Having the Ultimate Feral Girl Summer (feat. @__mull)

    This week’s ep has everything: breeder fetishes, ASMR, and a himbo who is either sleeping or dead, we’re not sure which one. Brittany and Ej kick off their careers as aspiring ASMRtists with a new Flop or Not? segment to try out TikTok’s “Healthy Coke” trend, aka balsamic vinegar and seltzer water, before parsing the Shein human trafficking hoax, the latest season of Love Island, and explain what serial lady-boofin’-inner Nick Cannon, Jeffrey Epstein, and a hot professor who sells sperm in a Target bathroom on Atlantic Ave. have in common. Feat. an interview with Feral Girl Summer creator Mollie and a very special Himbo of the Week, a horse named Sugar who is either sleeping or dead.Links referred to in this episode:

    BONUS: Catfish Aren't Always the Bad Guys": feat. Deleesa and Trevor from Netflix's The Circle

    BONUS: Catfish Aren't Always the Bad Guys": feat. Deleesa and Trevor from Netflix's The Circle

    This week on Don't Let This Flop, we have a special treat of a bonus episode for superfans of Netflix's The Circle: Deleesa and Trevor St. Agathe, the winner and runner-up of Season 2 and Season 4 respectively, and the king and queen catfishes of The Circle. Brittany and Ej have Deleesa and Trevor to spill the tea from last season (and what backstabbing convos didnt make it onto the show), why no woman has ever won playing The Circle as themselves, and why everyone uses those cheesy-ass hashtags.

    Charlie Puth vs. Laura Bush Smackdown

    Charlie Puth vs. Laura Bush Smackdown

    Why is the Queen the same size as Paddington Bear? What is worse: being a grown man who openly brags about masturbating to Maroon 5 and ironically using the word “hungies”; or being a former First Lady married to a war criminal? And who, pray tell, lied to Liam Payne about his Spotify streams? Plus, Brittany and Ej unpack the inherently homophobic nature of the mere existence of Matthew Morrison, uncover Rush Limbaugh’s past as a Pizza Hut spokesmodel, and determine once and for all the best frozen pizza brand on the market.Links referenced in this episode:Charlie Puth On TikTok, Dating Apps, & Writing Songs To Turn You On

Love the podcast, I literally hate the theme song more than anything though

Please. The content is so good. But the theme song makes me want to not listen. I guess I can just skip it. But oof. It’s truly rough.

Want to be a part of something that is helping to erode the very fabric of society? This podcast is insulting, ignorant, and will make you stupider every second you listen to it.
