Brandpoint

Daily Beast culture critic Ira Madison III and co-hosts Kara Brown and Louis Virtel are joined each Wednesday by comedians, journalists and others for a discussion of pop culture, politics, terrible celebrity tweets, events like the Oscars and more. Nothing is out of bounds, from Melania's grammatically challenged Be Best campaign to Louis C.K.'s unwanted comeback to Meghan Markle's annoying father, to how much John McCain loved ABBA.

Adam Gravano

Lovecraft, Algernon Blackwood, M. R. James and Bram Stoker, among many others.
