‘Speed Dial,’ Episode 19: The Lady And The Trump

Also discussed: the sly liberalism of ‘Will & Grace,’ and Drake’s short film ‘Please Forgive Me’

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.

Our long national nightmare is ... just beginning? This week, Ira and Doreen discuss the comedy and horror that was the first presidential debate. Ira tells Doreen a little bit about what it was like to canvas on a weekend in Nevada. Next, they discuss the (brief) comeback of Will & Grace. The cast members got together to make a hilarious ad for Clinton, and their brilliant chemistry reminded your hosts of the way that show, more than others, challenged the “liberal New Yorker” trope. After watching Drake’s short film, Please Forgive Me, Ira and Doreen try to parse why his work is so impersonal. Finally, they give Feedback to a totally adorable “Speed Dial” listener who wants to know how to become a writer.
