Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig is one of indie’s most thoughtful frontmen, and on TIME CRISIS, he digs into today’s politics and pop culture headlines. Some episodes are serious (he hits the campaign trail with Bernie Sanders, and teaches a masterclass on sampling) and some aren’t (you’ll hear heated debates about Cheetos, Yeezys, and Seinfeld), but each show gets an eclectic soundtrack that spans Drake, David Bowie, Diplo, and Def Leppard. Regular guests include Jonah Hill, Mike D, Alana Haim, and co-host Jake Longstreth, but you never know who could stop by. What you can be sure of: No topic is too high-or-low-brow for Ezra’s hot take.

A rambling fiesta of musical musings!
Ezra and crew are a delight to listen to. I love their takes of music and how it fits into their memories. Just a group of buddies musing about their passions. So great. I learn new things and I connect my own passions to theirs. I could spend a day with TC in my ears. And when Rashida is special guest! 🤩🤩🤩
