Ever wonder who the meanest Mean Girl really is? Or analyzed the power dynamics in that high school drama? Today, we're here to do just that. Joined by the insightful Will Lawson and Jewel Wicker, we dissect the impact of 'Mean Girls', share our unique takes on this cultural phenomenon, and, in a lively debate, argue for a spinoff featuring the Unfriendly Black Hotties. But there's more, our unpopular opinions aren't limited to the land of North Shore High alone. Will and Jewel weigh in on the pop culture enigma that is Iggy Azalea and the ubiquitous Telfar bags.

On a nostalgic journey, Will and Jewel will have you reminiscing about your own teenage years as they delve into the music that shaped theirs. From Dream's 'He Loves You Not' to Mariah Carey's 'Obsessed', we relive some iconic pop moments. Further, we dive into the complicated characters of 'Mean Girls', asking the critical question – Is Janice merely misunderstood? Our discussion also touches on the portrayal of people of color in the movie, a topic that is often overlooked but oh-so-crucial.

To wrap up our spirited discussion, we shift our focus to the Mean Girls musical adaptation, examining how it stacks up against the beloved movie. We also scrutinize the movie's unforgettable quotes and iconic scenes, dissecting what they reveal about the characters and the underlying power dynamics. There's so much more to 'Mean Girls' than meets the eye, and we're here to unearth it all. So, whether you're a die-hard fan of 'Mean Girls' or just curious about its cultural influence, join us for this candid, engaging and insightful conversation.
