q's pop culture panel — this week, columnist Stephen Marche of Esquire, Slate critic Carl Wilson, and Emily Keeler of the National Post — take on the worthy, contentious, and crazy stories from the week in arts and entertainment.

At issue today:

  • Drake vs. Meek Mill: Why is ghostwriting frowned on in hip hop? 
  • Hulk Hogan: Was the WWE right to fire him? 
  • What does the excitement around the newly released Dr. Seuss book say about the state of publishing?
