Keep It!

By Crooked Media

Ira Madison III, culture critic and columnist, is joined each week by comedians, journalists, actors, musicians, activists, politicians and more for a conversation at the intersection of pop culture and politics at a time when we're all obsessing over both. Movies! Music! Terrible tweets by celebrities trying to seem engaged while bragging about their latest project! This show has it all. New episodes every Wednesday.
