Joining us for the original Fyre Fest—the Beverly Hills, 90210 episode where Steve Sanders Management set a rave party ablaze—is the multi-talented Mickey Keating! Mickey is a full-time contributor to Instinct Magazine, and his debut short horror film Daddy’s Girl is available to watch online at Crypt TV. More importantly, he’s a burgeoning game show and talk show prodigy, and you can watch his appearances on Joker’s Wild with Snoop Dogg, and The Wendy Williams Show. His book Paused is available on Amazon.
Kat is joined this week by Blaze family members Kim Hoffman and Leeni Ramadan to scalp tickets to the Rolling Stones show at the Rose Bowl and start an online flame war. This episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 was originally titled “That Voodoo That You Do,” and is not available for streaming on Hulu—so you’ll have to watch it on DVD! Listen to Kim and Leeni’s previous appearances on the podcast. Discussed in this episode:

The IMDb profile photos discussed in this episode, Mark Damon Espinoza and Wesley Allen Gullick:
Lizzie and Kat are joined by author, artist, activist, and (former) academic Ebony Adams. She hosts the Feminist Frequency Radio podcast, whose motto is, “Be critical of the media you love,” and coauthored History vs. Women: The Defiant Lives that They Don’t Want You to Know with media critic Anita Sarkeesian. Together we analyze the racially-charged episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 that tackles a controversial, anti-semitic speaker invited to California University, putting the Black Student Union at odds with the Maccabee Center (and Andrea)—with Brandon stuck in the middle.
We are thrilled to discuss this unforgettable episode with Andy Kamenetzky, who originally joined us for the season two episode, “A Competitive Edge.” Andy is a sports reporter for ESPNLA 710, and he and his brother Brian together host the Kamenetzky Podcast. So, that makes him the perfect guest to analyze the gameplay in the KEΓ House flag football tournament at California University—just kidding, the trippy journey through Dylan’s psyche has always made this Andy’s favorite episode of the series.

We’re very grateful that Kat is joined this week by our friend Anna to discuss the season five episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 in which Dylan’s substance abuse is confronted with a staged intervention and catastrophic consequences.
