The popular podcast sees host Joseph back with more of her sharp-witted analysis, special guests, and insights into what’s trending
Having explored everything from the truth behind reality TV, the fallout from Harry and Meghan’s bombshell Netflix series and Jameela Jamil’s exasperation with the return of size zero to the fashion runways, the new series provides more unique takes on the latest pop culture stories and what they mean for us day-to-day.
The first new episode is available for listening now. With the return of the Oscars and its lingering controversies, Joseph talks to author and Hollywood expert Michael Shulman about the awards campaigns that go on behind the scenes, the criticisms from actors and why young people just aren’t watching anymore.
New episodes will be released every Thursday.
Joseph said: “It has been a dream come true working with all the team, and I am so overjoyed that we’re back for a second season.
“I already know this next series will be even better than the last. We have so many exciting new features to be revealed and more stories to explore.”
Nicole Jackson, head of audio at Guardian News & Media, said: “Pop Culture has proved to be another great audio offering from the Guardian. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Chanté and the whole team who have made the podcast possible. I’m looking forward to listening to Chanté and her guests covering the highs, the lows and everything in between in this latest season.”
