Movies! Music! Celebrities embarrassing themselves! KEEP IT has it all.
Each week, Ira Madison III, Louis Virtel, and Aida Osman are joined by comedians, journalists, actors, musicians, activists, politicians and more to discuss the latest ways pop culture and entertainment are intersecting with politics and society. Expect accents (is that Catherine Deneuve?!), Oscars trivia, and endless amounts of shade. New episodes drop every Wednesday.
Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as hosts have everyone looking forward to the Golden Globes, while Kevin Hart’s Oscar hosting gig implodes after a series of unearthed homophobic tweets. Plus, Cardi B dumps Offset, Beyoncé performs at a wedding in India, and D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place) joins the panel!
Ira, Kara, and Louis are back in LA together to talk about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' two over the top weddings, Jameela Jamil's detox tea crusade, and why it's perfectly fine for the victims of his presidency to speak ill of George H.W. Bush. Plus, bootcut jeans are back, the Pope should mind his business, why Call Me By Your Name 2 is unnecessary, and guest Franklin Leonard (creator of The Black List) joins to talk diversity in screenwriting.
Kara is out of town, so Ira calls in from London (where he’s hunting down an interview with Meghan Markle) to talk to Louis about Amanda Bynes’ comeback, Lena Dunham continuing to be Lena Dunham, rumors about Shawn Mendes’ sexuality, and the transphobic conversation surrounding Dwight Howard’s alleged scandal. Plus, Ira sits down with British pop singer and producer MNEK to talk about the legacy of Mariah Carey and writing for Beyoncé, Madonna, and Little Mix.
Ira’s back in New York, so he’s joined by Aminatou Sow (Call Your Girlfriend podcast) and Hannah Giorgis (The Atlantic) to discuss Pete Davidson bringing David Crenshaw on SNL, Victoria Secret’s lack of inclusivity, and the woes of travel in the social media age. Kara and Louis call in with some urgent thoughts on Jill Scott and Gwyneth Paltrow. Also, playwright Jeremy O. Harris joins to discuss the midterms, black voter responsibility, and his provocative new work ‘Slave Play.”
