As Jezebel podcast hosts, writers, and editors (past and present), Madeleine and Megan know a lot about pop culture, their heads stuffed full of random facts about celebrities and their work. But just how much? Are they capable of pontificating about any given prompt, without advance knowledge or time to prepare?
On this week’s episode of DirtCast, the hosts play a game of Pop Culture Roulette, drawing from a grab bag of TV-, celebrity-, and lion-themed topics, testing their knowledge, their speaking skills, and whether they are qualified to host this show. It’s like high school debate, but fun; like improv, but actually fun.
But it’s also a somber installment of the Dirtiest Dirt, in which a bet is won—but love, $5, and a pack of gum are lost.
