CherryPicks, the entertainment and media website founded by Miranda Bailey and Rebecca Odes in 2018, premiered the second season of their original podcast, CHERRYPOP on May 4, 2021. Meg McCarthy returns as the host with new episodes dropping every Tuesday. This season includes a stellar line up of Hollywood stars, cultural tastemakers and social media influencers talking about SEX and the difficult discussions surrounding sexuality on screen. 

The premiere episode, presented by Baby Phat Beauty features award winning actress, Amandla Stenberg from (The Hate U Give). Together Meg and Amandla discuss sexuality, the importance of detaching from the current cultural toxic language about women and LBGTQ+ characters and ending the censorship of female identifying, and queer pleasure in media. 

“There’s just not enough conversation around how sex should feel for young femmes.” Stated Amandla Stenberg.
