Introducing Lowbrow: Zac Efron & The 2012 Condom Incident

Listen on

Episode notes

We've launched a new podcast. It's called Lowbrow. If you want to hear more head here and subscribe. 

Welcome to Lowbrow! Your cheat-sheet to big pop-culture moments from the perspective of two women- 25 years apart.

In this inaugural episode, Em is here to explain to Holly a moment that rocked her world; when Zac Efron dropped a condom on the red carpet of a kid's movie premiere. Unsurprisingly, Holly doesn't remember this life-changing pop culture moment. So, Em breaks it down moment by moment so that Holly can use it as "common ground" for the next time she's talking to someone younger than her. 

PLUS we get to the bottom of who Zac was intending on sleeping with that evening; Taylor Swift, Betty White or potentially even Danny DeVito.

One story, two generations, so much WTF.
