On this week's episode of Don't Let This Flop, cohosts Brittany Spanos and Ej Dickson discuss the breakup of Anthony Ramos and Jasmine Cephas Jones in their segment What Are Straight People Doing?, as well as TikTok's obsession with Hamilton and how NYU Tisch kids get over heartache (spoiler: obnoxiously). They also discuss Spotify Unwrapped (a.k.a. the worst day of the year on the internet), a Megan Thee Stallion mashup with Adele's "Water on the Bridge," and the roots of Bing-Bong, the meme taking over everyone's For You pages.
Don’t Let This Flop is a weekly podcast from Rolling Stone, centered around a roundup of this week in TikTok trends and memes, from dances to recipes to makeup challenges to creepy viral videos to celebrity videos to grassroots campaigns intended to raise awareness of social issues. Join hosts Brittany Spanos and EJ Dickson as they unpack their significance, with special guests to break down the latest trends in TikTok. Some of these stories will be silly; some will be more serious. All will have wider implications outside the world of TikTok.
