We Can't Get Enough of Ira Madison III's Pop Culture Commentary

The writer and Keep It host is a part of this year's #PRIDE25!


The way the LGBTQ+ community has been portrayed in popular culture has come a long, long way in recent years. Although there's still a lot of work to be done, so many creative queer folks have been making awesome and inclusive movies, music, TV shows, and more that better represents our lives and our stories, so in honor of Pride Month, we're taking the time to honor 25 of these inspiring people! This is the 2019 #PRIDE25!

Ira Madison III's witty humor has made him an essential person to follow on Twitter, and with the continued success of Keep It, the podcast he hosts with Louis Virtel and Kara Brown, the writer is bringing a much-needed voice to the world of entertainment criticism and pop culture commentary. Besides his published words for the likes of The Daily Beast, MTV News, and GQ, Ira is also currently writing Netflix's upcoming teen, sci-fi series Daybreak

"I think I was expecting the show to do well [but] it was a shock how big it was right out of the gate," Ira told Los Angeles Magazine about reactions to his podcast. "I think that people were really craving a show like this, that talks about pop culture in a smart way. We’re also fans of the things we talk about. It’s different from other pop culture podcasts in a way. We’re a bit more acerbic. There’s just a bit more of a bite on Keep It than you would see on most other shows."

Follow Ira on Twitter and listen to his Keep It podcast on Crooked Media. Daybreak is set to drop on Netflix in the near future!
