With the Adam Levine sexts leaking and the Celtics head coach getting fired for cheating on Nia Long, this has been a banner week for shitty straight men. Luckily, on TikTok we have a new healthy model for masculinity: La Bussi, the new mascot for the Sabadell public transit system, a horrifying monstrosity who nonetheless has an extraordinary amount of swagger. Other topics discussed: the Miami Boys’ Choir (and whether or not they...

Is it a good idea to DM your recently dumped Instagram model mistress to ask if it’s OK if you and your supermodel pregnant wife name your baby after her? No, and while you didn’t need to be told that, Adam Levine of aggressively mediocre elevator band Maroon 5 fame apparently did. Other things you probably don’t need to be told: don’t get leg-lengthening surgery (ladies love a short king!), don’t get your sex education from 2 Girl...

After months of speculation that the Palace was soft-launching the Queen’s death, Brittany and Ej break the news, Newsroom-style, that Queen Elizabeth II passed away at the tender age of 96….only to be replaced by her son, a boiled lunchroom carrot who secretly dreams of becoming a Horse Girl’s tampon. This week on DLTF, we talk Queen group threads and death memes (including one featuring a famously very pregnant influencer), the s...

This week for DLTF’s 50th episode (!) Brittany returns from her vacation to dissect Don’t Worry, Darling’s Venice Film Festival fracas, specifically Spitgate and whether Harry Styles spitting on Chris Pine is more than a figment of our collective horny imagination. We also discuss Leo sending Camila Morrone to the Island of Ancient Girlfriends, Lea Michele’s flop of a redemption profile, how TikTok thinks Marco Polo is a front for ...

Most things are fake on the internet, but at least one thing is real: Yung Gravy’s eternal, abiding love of MILFs, as demonstrated by his PDA with Addison Rae’s mom Sheri at the VMAs on Sunday. This week, we celebrate the couple for raising MILF awareness in America as well as dissect the outrageously addictive ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ drama, the stripper pole-centric moral panic gripping parents nationwide, social media platforms’ ob...

(In Stefan voice) This episode has everything: extremely online Tumblr zillennials canceling Elizabethan playwrights for no reason; stupid conspiracy theories about the tragic deaths of Emmy-nominated bisexual actresses; the real reason why Zach Braff made Garden State; dragging pervy That 70s Show stars, and surprisingly well-endowed SNL stars who are not named Pete Davidson. Featuring culture reporter Morgan Sung of NBC News, exp...

The past week has been a maelstrom of toxic masculinity, what with former kickboxer/sentient condom on hair salon floor Andrew Tate taking over everyone’s For You page and Addison Rae’s stepdad threatening to punch anyone who tries to have sex with his ex-wife. As a balm, we read Jenette McCurdy’s much-discussed memoir I’m Glad My Mom Died this week and chat about whether dogs in San Francisco are really addicted to methhead poop. ...

You’re a show-stopper! A bad liar! A homie hopper! This week, Ej and Brittany (back from her two-week birthday celebration) are returning with a discussion of the Satanic conspiracy theories about Beyonce’s new album, potentially misleading TikTok PMS ads, and a pop-punk love triangle for the ages culminating in perhaps the most messy breakup song ever written, Lil Huddy’s “All the Things I Hate About You” (what is a “homie hopper”...

We have a spicy one this week! Producer Liz Garber-Paul sits in for Brittany, who’s on vacation this week, and we’re kicking off with our in-depth explainer of Prince William’s alleged love of prostate play and the tangled romantic web the royals weave, followed by our guest Remy Kassimir, host of the podcast How Cum, chatting about OnlyFans, eating ass on the first date, and how to have an orgasm if you’re poor. Also discussed: th...

Let’s kick off the week with a shoutout to Ej’s therapist, who is a regular Don’t Let This Flop listener and who now, after listening to this episode, will be instrumental in helping Ej recover from her fear of birds. (They poop where they pee, and it’s weird they used to be dinosaurs, and anyone who thinks it’s cool is lying to themselves). The ladies also discuss Brittany’s secret history as an American Girl doll brunch influence...

t’s the summer stretch between July 4th weekend and Labor Day, which means the straight people are out in full force, dabbing vaginal fluids on their wrists to attract mates and attending secret early-2000s power couple weddings. This week, we discuss the “vabbing” trend on TikTok (and the Swiss pervert who may have laid the groundwork for it), Lana Del Rey’s new bisexual himbo boyfriend’s connection to not one but two extremely ch...

Don’t tell us not to live, just sit and puttah! Life’s candy and the sun’s a ball of butta! Don’t bring around a cloud to rain on our paraaaaaade. Listen, as far as we’re concerned, there is only one story this week, and that is Lea Michele being officially cast as Beanie Feldstein’s replacement in the Broadway revival of Funny Girl. Not to be dramatic but it is the most formative event in history since the Indus Valley development...

Who’s the worst person you know to come out against Roe v. Wade being overturned? Whoever it is, scratch that, because the answer is almost certainly OJ Simpson, who came out on Twitter to give his…extremely un-asked-for opinion on the topic. This week on DLTF, we talk terrible men who have surprising opinions on the Dobbs decision, as well as the TikTok internal shower trend (spoiler: it made ½ of us poop), abortion Venmos, movie ...

This week on the internet, a lesbian OnlyFans creator couple found out they may be sisters, a TikToker is very publicly horny for Steve Irwin’s himbo son, and Justin Timberlake continues his downward spiral into cultural irrelevancy with his viral Beat Ya Feet dance (and proves that JC was the best NSyncer all along). Plus, Ej discusses her trip to VidCon (culminating in a hearty dose of petty theft!) and Vox senior correspondent R...

We at DLTF have gone on record as being distinctly anti-Boston on this podcast. It’s a bad city with awful bars, terrible food and racist energy. And yet, Chris Evans on the promo tour for Lightyear is making a generation of millennial women want to pack their bags and move to Beantown. What kind of witchcraft is this? Also discussed: Camila Morrone reaches her Leo girlfriend expiration date, why Elvis is canceled (again) (also, ex...

This week’s ep has everything: breeder fetishes, ASMR, and a himbo who is either sleeping or dead, we’re not sure which one. Brittany and Ej kick off their careers as aspiring ASMRtists with a new Flop or Not? segment to try out TikTok’s “Healthy Coke” trend, aka balsamic vinegar and seltzer water, before parsing the Shein human trafficking hoax, the latest season of Love Island, and explain what serial lady-boofin’-inner Nick Cann...

This week on Don't Let This Flop, we have a special treat of a bonus episode for superfans of Netflix's The Circle: Deleesa and Trevor St. Agathe, the winner and runner-up of Season 2 and Season 4 respectively, and the king and queen catfishes of The Circle. Brittany and Ej have Deleesa and Trevor to spill the tea from last season (and what backstabbing convos didnt make it onto the show), why no woman has ever won playing ...

Why is the Queen the same size as Paddington Bear? What is worse: being a grown man who openly brags about masturbating to Maroon 5 and ironically using the word “hungies”; or being a former First Lady married to a war criminal? And who, pray tell, lied to Liam Payne about his Spotify streams? Plus, Brittany and Ej unpack the inherently homophobic nature of the mere existence of Matthew Morrison, uncover Rush Limbaugh’s past as a P...

Today marks the launch of Pride Month, a time of elaborate parades and trying not to get body glitter in your $11 vodka soda. It is also a time when large corporations pretend they care about queer rights by (drumroll) unveiling Live Laugh LGBTQ and Yass Kween tees. We had Dinonuggets.jpg, aka Connor Clary, on to talk about 2022 corporate pride merch, and how it manages to get more and more cringe each year. Plus: the debut of our ...

Why is Halsey beefing with her label on TikTok? Is a double yellow-headed Amazon parrot on TikTok giving Harry Styles a run for his money? Do we care that the elusive gossip master behind DeuxMoi is just a rich 30-something white lady (allegedly)? This week on Don’t Let This Flop, we’ve got all that plus the breastfeeding vs. formula wars, the Titty Crow from The Witch making his triumphant return, and OnlyFans model Kitty Lixo rev...
