This week, we’re fascinated by how Ann Coulter slams became the main attraction of Comedy Central’s Rob Lowe roast. We’re also talking about Roseanne (who has a new documentary out), the premiere of the Mascots trailer, our confusing feelings about Justin Bieber, more confusing feelings about American Horror Story and more. (9/7/16)

episode 19: ‘a brilliant mess’

This week, Coffee and Bars have a lot to unpack. First of all, there’s the VMAs, particularly Beyonce’s domination of it. Then there’s also the extremely ugly hacking of Leslie Jones, the debut of Netflix’s The Get Down, Tom Ford’s misogyny and so much more. (9/1/16)

episode 11: ‘pride & orlando’

As we mourn the victims of the Pulse Nightclub massacre in Orlando, we discuss how to deal with community grief — how music can help, how allies (like Nick Jonas) sometimes cross a line and nostalgia in the form of our own “first gay bar” experiences. (6/21/16)

episode 9: ‘espresso shot: maya & marty & tina & amy’

We don’t know about you, but this start to summer has been exhausting! We’re taking a week to regroup, but we didn’t want to leave you empty-eared, so we hope you don’t mind too much that we had a little less to say this week. On the agenda, a pair of comedy duos: Maya Rudolph and Martin Short (and their attempt to bring back the variety show format) and Amy Poehler and Tina Fey (and their Sisters film, which Joe finally paid $1.50 to watch via Redbox). There are a few other surprises in there, too!
