Backtalk: The VMAs and IUDs

On Backtalk, hosts Amy Lam and Sarah Mirk discuss the top pop culture stories of the week, offering snappy analysis and evangalizing about birth control. 

This week, they talk about what went town with Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, and Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards—and why it matters even if you're not a pop music fan. Then, they discuss an innovative Colorado program that offers free IUDs to teens and a study showing teens are twice as likely to have heard horror stories about IUDs than positive stories—even though they're super-safe and effective birth control. Yikes! 

Also on Backtalk, we talk about one thing we read, saw, and heard this week.

• Read: Sarah is finally getting on board with Image Comics' Rat Queens

• Saw: Amy is psyched about webseries Hey Yun.

• Heard: Listen to the sounds of Georgia Anne Muldrow
