And we’re not just talking about ANTM contestant Dani’s tooth gap (RIP).We talk to Jay Manuel, former Creative Director for "America's Next Top Model," about Tyra’s legacy, the cost of being a trailblazer, and what it was like to be on set for that infamous blackface photo shoot.Additional Material By: Citytv, Bankable Productions/Warner Bros., Unclear/Tyra Banks, CW/Warner Bros., and Entertainment Tonight/CBS.Production Music courtesy of www.epidemicsound.com.For transcriptions, please visit our website at https://pineapple.fm/back-issue.

About The Show
Back Issue reminisces on moments in pop culture’s past that have shaped our present. Each episode brings personal reflection, incredible guests, and plenty of deep belly laughs. This season our co-pilot Tracy Clayton is taking a break, so Josh Gwynn has invited some very special guest co-hosts to share their perspective on some of the most formative stories in pop culture. We start out with not just another hair story but a conversation about the gendered politics of specific hairstyles as Josh sets out on a mission to get a silk press. We’ll also reflect on iconic award speeches, explore what our brains do on gossip, break down the backstories of Degrassi and Cheetah Girls, decide if Josh should become the next Black ex-pat, and discuss which multi-hyphenate performers are deserving of their flowers.
