'Speed Dial With Ira And Doreen,' Episode 5: The Cult Of Steph Curry

Also discussed: white gentrifiers and public opinion on Amber Heard and Johnny Depp

Hello, speed dialers! It’s Ira Madison III and Doreen St. Félix, back with another episode of "Speed Dial With Ira and Doreen," MTV’s bicoastal podcast about music, pop culture, sex, and race.

This week, Ira and Doreen trade war stories on a modern American dilemma: how white people treat you when they move into your city. You know, the little things, like increasing rent and developing apps to make snitching on poor black and brown people much easier! (Peter Thiel, enemy of Gawker and wannabe supervillain, gets a shout-out here, too.) Next, Ira and Doreen talk about male fandom in sports in the era of Steph Curry. As the Eastern Conference finals draw near, people have a lot to say about the role of colorism in stanning, and Ira and Doreen jump in with the real. Finally, they ask an important question of everyone who felt moved to voice negative opinions on Amber Heard’s assault allegations against Johnny Depp: Who asked you?
