The Celebrity Teen Pregnancy That Crushed A Dream

Welcome to Lowbrow! Your cheat-sheet to big pop-culture moments from the perspective of two women 25 years apart.

When you hear the last name 'Spears', who do you think of? For most people, it's a certain pop star, but for Em, Jamie Lynn is the only Spears that mattered. She was the star of her favourite show, Zoey 101, before a shock pregnancy derailed everything.

On this episode of Lowbrow, Em takes Holly down a Zillenial rabbithole, and shines a light on the 'scandal' that was Jamie Lynn's teen pregnancy.

One story, two generations, so much WTF.
