Lex and Matt are back to talk about a gay conversion summer camp memoir that's probably automatically going to win Best Picture, Starbucks making themselves look worse by trying to fix their loitering problem, that stupid royal wedding, why Matt feels honest cheap food is better than food that tries to be better than it actually is, Hannah Simone's sexist nonwhite discrimination card against ABC, whether Brian or Rocco's Tavern is more to blame for him dumping half of their pizza on the floor, and Jennifer Aniston plays the first lesbian president on a new Netflix production.

Lex and Matt sneak into Rocco's Tavern when there's no big soccer game on to talk about Amber Rose and Amanda Knox's weird discussion on sexual history and murderous tendencies, DJ Khaled's oral opposition, Johnny Depp's violent drunkenness (and Matt's apology to Amber Heard), Stormy Daniels' undeserved praise, Ashley Graham's "flawless" overweight body, Kevin Hart's friend's sex tape extortion plot, and finally, the utter ridiculousness of The Handmaid's Tale.
We discuss Allison Mack's role in Keith Raniere's NXIVM sex cult, how the media ignored a lesbian couple driving six adopted black kids off a cliff, Amy Schumer not being fat enough to be funny, how Shania Twain would have voted in 2016 if she wasn't Canadian, #TimesUp's exclusivity, Charlize Theron's plan to escape American racism by bringing her black babies to South Africa, and Amelia Gray's battle with anorexia and apparent indifference to teen exploitation in celeb culture, all while everyone else at Rocco's Tavern is watching Champions League soccer.
The boys probe into the depths of the Internet's reaction to Facebook's data collection and sales policies, and to Apu on The Simpsons for being a racial stereotype (after decades of silence on the issue). And of course there's that Florida high school student who got kicked out of class for going braless, Matt's thoughts on reverse sexism, how sorry Jimmy Kimmel is, and how white women seem to benefit most from "diversity" initiatives.

Fox and 50 Cent openly discussing their sexual exploits, and K-Fed still living off Britney's teat
Is Hollywood trying to kill the idea of masculinity? Can transsexuals legally force Tinder to make accommodations for their inclusion? Should a fake prince make more than a fake queen? And when did SXSW become a venue for Katie Couric to lead a panel on being Muslim in America? Lex and Matt squeeze in these topics just before Rocco's Tavern gets loud and rowdy for some European soccer game.

Princeton students walk out of a class after the professor teaches about hate speech...during a class on hate speech. Sharpie messages on Sports Illustrated's #MeToo Swimsuit models.

Lex and Matt grapple with these issues, plus Rose McGowan is demanding attention and the Hollywood gender pay gap continues spitting in the face of economics.

Opportunistic Rose McGowan's "Brave" memoir about the evils of Hollywood, where soon there might be nobody left to produce big projects, especially since the Weinstein scandal revealed how all the big media outlets are in cahoots. Then we have Larry David telling concentration camp jokes on SNL and Taylor Swift being accused of white supremacist complicity, and Lamar Odom takes another fall toward his demise. And even though our guest never showed up, we ponder the intersection of feminism and beauty pageants.

Richard Simmons loses in his slander suit against the Enquirer, NFL players kneel for...why, again? Hurricane Maria absolutely destroys Melissa Joan Hart's vacation, the media reports on Trump instead of more objectively important and newsworthy topics, underage hot chicks, and...reproductive coercion?
