  • **We are so sorry about Lauren's microphone quality again this week! Thank you for bearing with us as we figure out what is going on with it!**

    In this week's episode, we dive into the world of deepfake technology after an x-rated deepfake video of Addison Rae went viral. We look at how deepfake differs from other types of synthetic media and explore the threat they pose to women's safety, political stability, and the verification of false information.

  • In this week's episode, we explore the rise of the "clean girl" aesthetic that's recently taken off on TikTok. We discuss the trend's origin and look at the similarities between "clean girl" and other aspirational wellness and beauty trends like "that girl" "main character energy" and "off duty model". We dive into the trend's racist, classist, and elitist roots and look at how the nature of TikTok as a platform has contributed to how toxic the "clean girl" aesthetic has become.

  • In this week's episode, we dive into the Astroworld tragedy. We look at the culture Travis Scott has fostered amongst his fanbase, the violent history of his concerts, and how he exploits his parasocial relationship with fans for hype. We explore the backlash around Kylie Jenner and her response to what happened and aim to answer the question: Who is to blame? Can celebrities control their stans/fanbase and should they be held responsible for when things go wrong? Will Travis recover from this? What PR strategies do we foresee? And what changes to celebrity and influencer culture need to be made to protect fans?

  • In this week's episode, we dive into the saga of RFLCT by Valkyrae— the skincare brand developed by YouTube's biggest female streamer that was forced to shut down before it even launched. We explore the backlash surrounding the brand's claims that the products offered blue light protection and aim to answer the question: Why did the gaming community respond so severely to these claims when beauty brands have been formulating products with blue light protection for years? And could blue light skincare really be a scam?

  • In this week's episode, we explore Trisha Paytas' latest cancellation and why it feels different from the countless other times they have been "cancelled." We look at the role Frenemies played in redeeming Trisha's image and how that redemption arc has made this latest scandal worse, while also questioning the role digital culture reporting (like our brand!) has played in amplifying problematic figures like Trisha. We end with our thoughts on if Trisha can actually ever be cancelled, or if Trisha really is "uncancellable".

  • In this week's episode, we look at how influencers are becoming increasingly comfortable with placing psychiatric labels on each other like "gaslighter", "narcissistic" and "sociopath" to drum up drama and win fights. We look at how these labels have transcended the field of psychiatry into internet culture and mainstream vocabulary while examining the implications of this shift on the stigmatisation of mental health. Finally, we consider why influencers are so quick to use these "buzzwords" despite the backlash and share some solutions to this rising issue.

  • In this week's episode, we explore Emma Chamberlain's decision to take an indefinite break from YouTube as she chooses to nurture her mental health. We look at the longevity and sustainability of a YouTube career and aim to answer the following questions: Do the benefits of being a successful creator outweigh the drawbacks of living your life in the public eye with little-to-no career progression and a lack of structure in your work environment? What happens when your success plateaus and you're deemed "irrelevant"? And can a career on YouTube really be the endgame?

  • In this week's episode we dive into the latest beauty trend to sweep TikTok: Brazilian butt lifts AKA 'BBL'. We cover what exactly is a BBL, how this procedure rose in popularity, the deadly impact it has on women around the world, and how TikTok has played a major role in glorifying it. We also share our opinions on whether or not plastic surgery of any type can be considered "feminist" when women are going under the knife in hopes of achieving the beauty standard— a standard determined by the male gaze.

  • In this week's episode, we explore the rise in queer ambiguity amongst Gen Z icons such as Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Harry Styles and the like. We discuss how celebrities use queerbaiting to their advantage and the implications for mainstream LGBTQIA+ representation. We also look at whether fans put too much pressure on their faves to put a label on their sexual orientation and how that might impact the artist's own personal exploration.
