In this episode of the Dropcast, hosts Jian DeLeon and Noah Thomas are joined by Sydney Gore and George Ocampo. They talk about the success of the film Crazy Rich Asians and explain why it’s not the Asian Black Panther. The MTV VMAs also happened this week—with the lowest ratings ever—and Sydney gives tips on how to stay awake during an awards show you don’t really want to watch but sort of have to because of work. Kanye West also gave us a look at his current sneaker rotation, with a few surprises amidst rows and rows of YEEZY footwear.

There’s also a debate about the best band merch of all time, tying into a list we recently published. Of course, no Dropcast is complete without a Question of the Week, and this time it’s about preppy style. We asked listeners if the American traditional, Ivy-league influenced way of dress was coming back in a big way this year, and man did you get let us have it. But it also opens up a frank conversation about how maybe, just maybe, people want to start looking “nice” again.

As always, hit us up with your feedback by calling the Dropcast Hotline at 888-HIGHSNOB.
