Brehs, we present to you a new episode of DOPENESS where every (other) week Nick Delmacy is joined by a guest and they discuss dope movies, dope music, dope web series and all things dope in pop culture (except celebrity gossip). Some topics will be gay/bisexual related, some will not…but every discussion will be from a POV that you won’t hear anywhere else!
