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 6, "The Get Down!," available now, the hosts examine season two of the Netflix hip-hop series through a feminist lens. They discuss some of the unheralded women who were making moves at the dawning of the rap game, and break down the systematic sexualization of the series' only major female character, Mylene Cruz.
