If you spend too much time on social media, it’s easy to get caught up in drama and forget the fun that brought you there. If that’s the case, then there’s a new show launching today that might be for you. ICYMI which stands for “in case you missed it” is a new show from Slate all about Internet Culture. Every Wednesday and Saturday starting March 24, Slate writers Rachelle Hampton and Madison Malone Kircher will dive into what’s trending on social media and examine why. If it’s happening on Clubhouse, Twitch, Twitter, or Tik-Tik, these ladies have you covered with sharp takes and witty banter. Sample topics the show will cover include a wild night on Clubhouse, the Gen Z vs. Millennial Wars, and more.
There is a lively trailer available to give you a taste of the show and this Thursday at 4 PM EDT the hosts will kick off their show with a live launch party streamed on Facebook and YouTube for free.
The first episode about the fall of internet celebrities like YouTuber David Dobrik is available now as well.
