In 2016, Terra Newell killed her stepdad in self-defense. Her stepfather’s scams and Newell’s assault that led to his demise was the subject of the Dirty John podcast and TV show. Now, she’s gone viral on TikTok for reclaiming her story. She joined us for an interview. Plus, we wonder if Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” has resurrected the dance challenge…
 
This week we feature a very special Himbo of the Week: Nick Tobler, aka @cowturtle, a Tiktoker who's gone viral for having a creepy eel pit in his basement (and who has attracted a slew of incredibly thirsty comments from ray-finned fish enthusiasts in the process). We also call out the influencers who have NOT commented on Roe v. Wade potentially …

Did you know that Elon Musk and Amber Heard allegedly had a threesome with Cara DeLevigne? Well, if you didn’t, you do now! You also probably haven’t been spending time on TikTok, where true crime creators have been obsessively tracking the ongoing Johnny Depp/Amber Heard defamation trial, with predictably gross and skeevy results. This week, Britt…
 
In this episode of the HP Lovecast Presents: Transmissions, Michele Brittany and Nicholas Diak interview David Rose about his novella Lovecraft's Iraq and Jonathan Maberry about his dark fantasy novel Kagen.

While the celebs (and Brittany!) were partying at Coachella (and while Timothee Chalamet was allegedly making out with a model/influencer who claims to have invented intersectional feminism), us normies at home were freaking out over the removal of the Snickers dick vein, an iconic American institution second only to the green M&M's slut boots. For…
 
We kick off this week with a classic troll: a viral video of "Spokane-style pizza," a concoction featuring canned salmon, mozzarella, fry sauce, and fresh strawberries that is not at all from the eastern Washington/Coeur d'Alene region. Created by DLTF guest Josh Scherer, a video of him making "Spokane-style pizza" went viral on Twitter and TikTok,…
 
This week has been hell, but fortunately for us, it's been a banner week for Straight People — which is why we decided to do a very special Straight People-themed edition of DLTF, exploring the heteros and their shenanigans. First up on the docket are Silicon Valley's favorite hetero lying liars, Elizabeth Holmes and Sunny Balwani, an embarrassment…

If he does, does he care? If not, should we tell him? Such are the questions raised every week by American Song Contest, the American version of Eurovision that's hosted by a constantly disassociating Snoop and Kelly Clarkson that's currently running on NBC. This week, we mourn the elimination of the absolute bop "New Boot Goofin" as well as discus…
 
When Will Smith slapped Chris Rock over a bad joke he made about his wife at the Oscars, we probably could've predicted that the Takes would be bad. But few could have predicted that it would have spawned an entire cottage industry of pundits comparing Smith to Putin, or clutching their pearls over what would have happened had Chris Rock been Betty…
 
This week the internet has been stuck in a nostalgia loop. "Gangnam Style" is making a comeback on TikTok (albeit as a backdrop for people to share their trauma about cheating boyfriends and being almost-murdered). Pete Davidson is getting branded with his girlfriend's name, again. And TikTok is replete with rumors of Hilary and Haylie Duff, your f…
 
How did Grimes hide a newborn baby in an Airbnb? Are Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz pretending to be in love with each other on The Batman press tour? Why does Denver appear to such a magnet for TikTokers having condom-free sex? And finally: would you join Scientology if John Travolta were still hot? For our 25th (!) (!) episode, Brittany and Ej …
 
When will liberals learn their lesson about sexualizing political figures? From Michael Avenatti to Andrew Cuomo, it never ends well. That hasn’t stopped a new batch of thirsty tweets that’s emerged about Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky after Russia’s invasion of his country. (Spoiler alert: they’re cringe as hell.) We also discuss Pam and T…
 
It’s been a long week — somehow longer than usual. Queen Elizabeth II’s death was falsely reported by a celebrity blogger who may or may not have confused her with a musician from Queens of the Stone Age. Russia invaded Ukraine, and celebrities posted their reactions in the most cringy ways possible. (Except Cher, of course, who is perfect.) Then t…

No sound has captured our For You Page — and, dare we say it, the soul of an entire generation — quite like Julia Fox saying "Uncut Jahhhhhhmz." Fox has gone viral not for her relationship with her now-ex paramour Kanye West, but for her role as Josh Safdie's self-described muse in Uncut Gems (or is it Uncah Jahhhms?), and the interview has got our…
 
For the past two weeks, Kanye West has constantly been posting on his previously dormant Instagram, aggressively campaigning to get his ex-wife Kim Kardashian back. Some of this behavior, such as referring to her current boyfriend Pete Davidson as "Skete" or posting Marvel Civil War memes, has been absurdly comical — but much of it has arguably cro…
 
In this episode of H. P. Lovecast, Michele Brittany and Nicholas Diak discuss the space horror comic book series, Caliban, written by Garth Ennis, art by Facundo Percio, and published by Avatar Press.

We promised we weren’t going to talk about And Just Like That on the pod…..and yet, the first 18 minutes of this episode are devoted to And Just Like That. We bid farewell to the first season of the endlessly divisive Sex and the City reboot, revisiting its best moments from the cringe (every scene with Che and Miranda, basically) to the unnecessar…
 
Why is this season of Euphoria going completely off the rails? What happens to TikTok-famous gay influencer couples when they break up? And why can't playwright and Emily In Paris star Jeremy O. Harris stay off of TikTok? On this week's Don't Let This Flop, we address these burning questions and far more, such as Sydney Sweeney's classic car restor…

How did a 6'4" West Elm furniture designer get our FYPs in a chokehold for a solid week? This week on Don't Let This Flop, we unpack the ethical morass of the West Elm Caleb saga, in which the women of NYC TikTok banded together to put a 25-year-old tall guy named Caleb on blast for allegedly lovebombing, then ghosting, them. Brands got involved, a…
 
On this week’s Don’t Let This Flop, we dissect Julia Fox’s PR-ready whirlwind relationship with Kanye West (and what, if any, involvement Pete Davidson may have; confront the reality that Lin Manuel Miranda is Cringe, and celebrate the return of both HBO’s “Euphoria” and multiple Himbo of the Week winner Francis Bourgeois, who debuted a highly erot…

From sea shanties to “Drivers License” to a lovable elderly pug to Swifties roasting the shit out of Jake Gyllenhaal, 2021 was a whirlwind on our favorite clock app. In honor of the close of this (honestly incredibly hectic) year, DLTF cohosts Brittany Spanos and Ej Dickson did a special end-of-year interview with RS Twitch host Charlie Cooper talk…

On TikTok, there perhaps is no insult more devastating than to be told by a teenager that your content is cringe. If this is the case, then the Jonas Brothers and the White House had quite a rough week. The pop trio teamed up with the Biden administration for a quick TikTok promoting the importance of vaccines by using the Bing Bong audio from a vi…
 
TikTok is not exactly the most sex-positive app, yet sex-worker content tends to go viral, even if TikTok would prefer otherwise. The latest example is a trend using an edited version of a line from Jon Lajoie's song "Show Me Your Genitals," in which sex workers show off their earnings with the audio, "Men are stupid and I don't respect them." We a…
 
On this week's episode of Don't Let This Flop, cohosts Brittany Spanos and Ej Dickson discuss the breakup of Anthony Ramos and Jasmine Cephas Jones in their segment What Are Straight People Doing?, as well as TikTok's obsession with Hamilton and how NYU Tisch kids get over heartache (spoiler: obnoxiously).

For DLTF's very special holiday episode, cohosts Brittany Spanos and Ej Dickson are doing an expanded version of their weekly Himbo of the Week segment, in which they celebrate the hot men of TikTok.

On TikTok, Francis Bourgeois — a gleeful young man who is introducing a new generation to the old-school art of trainspotting — has amassed 1.5 million followers with his highly enthusiastic posts sharing his love of trains. With his trusty GoPro-style camera in tow, he celebrates the glory of "marvelous locos" across Great Britain (including one n…
 
One of the biggest trends on TikTok over the past few weeks is a 2007 video of Hilary Duff dancing poorly to a perfume ad on the Today Show.

It's no secret that Ed Sheeran has historically been considered, for lack of a better term, uncool. The Brit's musical output skews on the schmaltzier side, and tracks like "Perfect" and "Thinking Out Loud" have traditionally been considered wedding dance songs or the soundtrack for freshman high schoolers' first experience with digital penetration…
 
TikTok is a platform populated primarily by teenagers, a demographic that can smell inauthenticity a mile away. So as it becomes more mainstream, how can brands gain traction on it? This week on Don't Let This Flop, cohosts Brittany Spanos and Ej Dickson spoke to the TikTok voice behind the DuoLingo owl itself, Zaria Parvez, the social media coordi…

On this week's episode of Don't Let This Flop, cohosts Brittany Spanos and Ej Dickson take on Noodle the Pug — namely, how his oversaturation has effectively canceled him. (Thanks, Today Show.)

Did Mamma Mia 2 deserve an Oscar? Are Megan Fox and MGK cosplaying Bella and Edward from Twilight? And what is the correct pronunciation for Dua Lipa: Due Lipé or Dula Peep? These are some of the burning questions addressed in this week's episode of Don't Let This Flop, in which we discuss the resurgence of ABBA on TikTok, the iconically horny Brit…
 
What was really going on when Lauren visited her boyfriend Robbie at college, surprising him as he sat on a couch with three girls? It turned into TikTok’s hottest clip, of course, with millions of fans picking apart whether the 20-second clip was definitive proof of Robbie cheating. After watching roughly 6,000 response videos breaking down theori…

This week, we're talking about the resurgence of Twilight on TikTok, discussing "Bella, where have you been loca?" and whether Taylor Lautner is more culturally relevant than Jar-Jar Binks (answer: no). We also parse the universal appeal of the Little Lad and the "berries and cream" meme and explain once and for all why everyone is seeing a sexy ve…
