Hop on the PARTY LYFT as we jam out for the long-awaited return of our favorite newlywed Wynter Mitchell-Rohrbaugh. She joins Karen Tongson and frequent favorite Pop Rocket guest LA Times Film Reporter Tre’vell Anderson as they get into their thoughts on season 3 of HBO’s Insecure.
The crew touches on the careers of the leading ladies- specifically white privilege problems at Issa’s nonprofit We Got Y’all, Issa’s side gig as a Lyft driver, and Molly’s experiences at her new black corporate law firm. They also talk about which characters they want moved from periphery to center. Do they miss Issa’s ex, Lawrence? And do they buy into Molly’s polyamorous relationship? Or is she’s really just a glorified side b****?
Wynter is all about the horror film Hereditary. Tre’vell is all about the new musical covering the life and times of the Motown group The Temptations called Ain’t Too Proud. Karen is all about more Asian American representation in Hollywood via John Cho’s new thriller Searching.
That’s My Jam:
Tre’vell – Teyana Taylor – WTP
Wynter – DJ AM – Unreleased Mixes.
