Poptarts is a twice-monthly podcast hosted by BUST Magazine editors Emily Rems and Callie Watts that celebrates women in pop culture. The first half of each episode is devoted to a hot topic in entertainment, and in the second half, a segment called "Whatcha Watchin'?," Callie and Emily dig into all the shows, movies, books, music, videos, and podcasts they've enjoyed since the last episode, and either praise or pan each experience.
In Episode 8, available now, the hosts welcome Lizz Winstead—the groundbreaking comedian, activist, and author who co-created The Daily Show, Air America Radio and The Lady Parts Justice League—into the studio. Of course the threesome read Trump to filth, but they also talk about the role comedy plays in the #resistance, how to make peace if you have republicans in your family, and, as always, what everyone's watching.
