‘Speed Dial,’ Episode 18: Angelina Jolie Is Single Now

Also discussed: the Emmys, the irony of ‘woke’ white comedians, and ‘Moonlight’

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.

Are you OK? Because Ira and Doreen aren’t and may never be again. This week, they cover the unexpected end to Hollywood’s most glamorous couple, Brangelina. The story has all the elements of classic Tinseltown drama, making it infinitely more impactful than that Kim/Kanye/Taylor debacle. Next, they recap the Emmys... which weren’t bad? Except for all the awkward quips about diversity a certain white host (*cough* Jimmy Kimmel *cough*) kept making. The jokes seemed even sillier when you realize that even if people of color are finally winning acting awards, the industry isn’t making space for them to direct and produce. Then, they discuss Moonlight, the new film from director Barry Jenkins, which is an emotional masterpiece. Finally, they give advice to a listener whose friends keep pronouncing Beyoncé’s name wrong.
