Things I learned this week: Pornography can be educational, Musical.ly is a thing that exists (though now it’s called TikTok), and Star Trek: Discovery has a very unfortunate acronym.

In the second episode of EW’s TV podcast Best of Shows, Darren Franich and I discuss Netflix’s new docu-series Trigger Warning with Killer Mike (featuring the aforementioned educational porn), Comedy Central’s hilarious new showbiz satire The Other Two (featuring an endearing performance by Musical.ly phenom Case Walker), and the new season of Star Trek: Discovery (STD? Oof).

Also on the agenda: The Oscars, and why the organizers should lean into the sh–show of it all, rather than allegedly trying to stop stars from presenting at other awards ceremonies.

And don’t miss our chat with The Other Two creators Sarah Schneider and Chris Kelly — the former SNL head writers responsible for some of your favorite digital shorts, including ‘Do It On My (Twin Bed)’ — who reveal what Saturday Night Live taught them about celebrity, and the game they play with Walker, Other Two‘s 15-year-old star, that makes them feel reallly old.

Listen to the episode below, or via Apple PodcastsGoogle PlayStitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts. New episodes are available every Monday morning. Tweet counterarguments to @KristenGBaldwin or @DarrenFranich.
