Podcast: Still Processing: RuPaul: 'Identity Is a Hoax, People!' | Episode 3
While we are discussing the Emmys, which Jenna barely wanted to watch, something amazing happens: a call from somebody who actually has an Emmy! Yup, it's RuPaul. He talks about both the importance of his Emmy-winning show, "RuPaul's Drag Race," and its non-importance, which, according to him, is its actual importance: "Identity is a hoax, people!"

Ultimately, the week's news — police shootings, political insults, and, yes, superstar divorce — proves too much for us. So we escape to Bryant Park, where Jenna gives Wesley some advice for how to detox.
