This week on “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, Hazel Cills and Rachel Handler co-host the show with Soraya Roberts, longform culture writer and author of In My Humble Opinion: My So-Called Life, a book about the best show that has ever existed on this doomed planet.
