Our Editor's Take

Trashy Divorces focuses on the failed relationships of well-known couples, living and deceased. As the title suggests, the pop culture podcast is about famous breakups and broken unions. It focuses on people from different times and societies. The show's hosts examine all kinds of splits, ranging from the cordial to the contentious. No relationship is safe on this show, not even those of King Henry VIII or David Letterman.

Married couple Alicia and Stacie host the hilarious podcast. Alicia is an accomplished artist and freelancer. Stacie is a freelance writer with years of experience. The Atlanta-based couple started the podcast three years into their marriage. The first episode aired in January 2019. Since then, they've built a large, loyal following. This includes Reddit, where fans have dedicated many threads to the show. Although Trashy Divorces focuses on relationship drama, it also offers pop culture updates. On top of that, Alicia and Stacie sometimes invite guests ranging from writers to podcasters. Such guests include podcaster Erica Kelly and astrologer Andy Bellati.

In each episode of the podcast, the hosts give a detailed bio of whoever they are chatting about. They highlight the backgrounds, careers, and dating lives of their "victims." Ethan Slater and Ariana Grande's unexpected pairing dominated one episode. The hosts discuss the Wicked costars splitting up from their significant others. They tattled on Ariana's dating patterns and love language.

Another discussion follows the personal life of well-known chef and author Cat Cora. Listeners hear about her two failed marriages, DUI arrests, and more. Like many stories on the podcast, Cat's tale shocks and awes in several ways. Listeners prepare to hear the murky and shocking details about their favorite celebrities.
