‘Speed Dial,’ Episode 11: Stranger Tings

Also discussed: Where in the world is Frank Ocean, and the fraudulence of Trump’s KFC photo

Hello Speed-Dialers! Ira Madison III and Doreen St. Félix return with another episode of “Speed Dial with Ira and Doreen,” MTV’s bicoastal podcast about music, pop culture, sex, and race.

Ready to go through the portal of the upside-down? This week, Ira and Doreen explore the spookiness and nostalgia of the Netflix show Stranger Things. [Spoiler alert: Skip to 17:30 if you haven't watched yet.] Part adolescent caper and part adult thriller, Stranger Things is the show of the summer, and your hosts can't stop making up conspiracy theories about it.

Next up: Frank Ocean. Ira and Doreen break down (again) the alleged news that Ocean is dropping Boys Don't Cry this Friday. This week's episode ends with a brief but impassioned ode to the supremacy of Popeyes over KFC, in light of Donald Trump's recent fake-ass fried-chicken propaganda.
