1. Conor and Holly's honest and hilarious take on Hollywood bulls***

It should come as no surprise that the Kardashians come up in conversation a lot on the show, and whether our hosts are discussing Khloé's split or the famous family trademarking their kid's names, they don't hold back!

2. Some truly iconic sayings

Holly's beloved saying 'Deserved x / Not Deserved x' launched an entire segment on the podcast, where she gives her verdict on which celebs have received the treatment they deserve, and which ones...have not.

3. You'll learn something (occasionally)

From how much Felicity Huffman had to put up for bail, to how many shows Nicki Minaj has cancelled on her current tour, our hosts have the cold hard facts.

4. They tackle the tough stuff too

While Popsessed is always reliable for more than its fair share of laugh out loud moments, Holly and Conor also discuss the darker entertainment stories making headlines, including the recent Leaving Neverland documentary.

5. The Neeeeeck of the Week

Inspired by a certain viral WhatsApp voicenote, our hosts name a celebrity, or group of celebs, as the 'Neeeeeck of the Week' in each episode. In the latest instalment, it's J.K. Rowling who's in the line of fire for her recent revisions to Harry Potter history.
