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.

For our latest episode, the gals sat down with Jessica Pimentel aka Maria Ruiz on Orange is the New Black! On the show, Pimentel played the queen of the Dominican used panties trade behind bars. But in real life, she's a Shakespearean actor who also fronts an extreme metal band and studies the Buddhist path. She's full of surprises!
