Alt-White

This week, Ira and Doreen bring back “Keep It,” the quick pop-culture rundown that decrees what greatness can stay and what mess can go. On the docket: struggle plates on holidays commemorating genocide (for the love of Beyoncé, season your mac and cheese), the British comedies Fleabag and Chewing Gum, and the psychologizing of Kanye West. Next, your “Speed Dial” hosts talk about The Weeknd’s interesting new album, Starboy. Yes — interesting. Ira and Doreen also get into a conversation about the semantics of white supremacy and the debates about whether the term “alt-right” is normalizing. Spoiler: It doesn’t matter! Lastly, as always, your voicemails!
