Welcome to our season 2 finale! We're wrapping up 2021 with a nice long chat about the long shadow of 2009 in pop and pop culture. Such power, such impact. It's time to revisit the brash and soaring sound of music, the final cohort of ubiquitous artists, and the transformative technology that ushered in our modern hell scape. Should be fun, so settle in!
Here was the syllabus for this episode, which we dropped a few days in advance in our discord group:
- Punch, Interview: DJ Earworm
- The Crimson White, 10 Year Column: One DJ distilled pop music into five minutes
- B-Sides Newsletter, The End of Ubiquity
- Vox, How the Taylor Swift-Kanye West VMAs scandal became a perfect American morality tale
We also promised to share the Miley and Mandy YouTube channel... pls enjoy.
