    Cardi, Cazzie, and the Spaces of Celebrity

    Our ideas of who stars are and what they do are changing - Cardi B is Billboard's Woman of the Year, and her critics say she's undeserving - but do they really just want her to stay out of 'their' spaces? Then, Cazzie David is the latest celebrity offspring with a book of essays - but anything you think about her being a spoiled rich kid, she also thinks - and says out loud. Plus, what do you do when your coworkers are COVID deniers and want you along for the ride?

    Shonda Rhimes... and Borat's Crimes?

    Shonda Rhimes... and Borat's Crimes?

    One measly Disneyland pass turned out to be Shonda's ticket out of ABC's Magic Kingdom and into the Netflix universe. On this episode, we discuss how ABC lost the “candy”. And then there’s Borat. What is the work from Sasha Baron Cohen that goes into making and being Borat – and which lines shouldn’t be crossed, even in the name of work?

Sure

I’m sorry but I hate his Duana says “sure”. I think Lainey called her out on it as well.
Aside from this I actually really like their insight. They are pretty fair and I’ve learned a lot from listening to both of them

Thought provoking and fun

Enjoyed the chemistry and points provided. Massive BTS fan myself and appreciate (and applaud) Lainey’s enthusiasm and insights. Along with the undeniable glory a Grammy carries, I also believe such an international trophy might be seen to be on the same level as an Olympic medal, something that could grant them a military service exception.

Gave it a chance

I wanted to like this, but episodes go on far too long. If I’m listening to a pop culture podcast longer than an hour, it has to be way more entertaining.
