BUST’s “Poptarts” Podcast Discusses Self-Help Celebs

by Emily Rems

In this episode of BUST’s Poptarts podcast, Callie and Emily are joined by the hilarious hosts of the podcast “By The Book,” Jolenta Greenberg and Kristen Meinzer, to discuss the curious intersection of celebs and self-help. Why are women so keen on taking life, health, and even medical advice from stars like Oprah, Gwyneth Paltrow, and (oy vey!) Jenny McCarthy? We get into it in a way only funny feminists can.

About: BUST’s 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.
