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.
It happened. Last week a nightmare became a reality, and we'll be in it for the next four years. After taking a week to regroup, Ira and Doreen are back. First, they discuss some of the white liberal and conservative fantasies that have been bubbling under the surface for years. In the interest of being proactive, your Speed Dial hosts also offer some reading and viewing suggestions, from black creators like James Baldwin, bell hooks, and Ava DuVernay, to help you prepare for survival. Next, Ira and Doreen lighten things up with conversations on the birth of our lord and savior, Dream Kardashian, and the uncomfortable comedy of Leslie Jones. Rounding this episode out are two feedback questions from our listeners.
