    Dave Holmes on Rediscovering the Lost '90s for His Waiting for Impact Podcast

    Dave Holmes sits down with Kyle Meredith to talk about his new podcast, Waiting for Impact, which tells the story of '90s group Sudden Impact, who disappeared after making an appearance in Boyz II Men’s “Motownphilly” video.

    The former MTV VJ discusses lost pop cultures of the past, pop music’s need for weirdness, the monoculture of the '90s, Soundscan’s impact on the music industry, and how our collective perception of certain eras tend to leave out much of the reality of the time.

    Meanwhile, Leithauser talks about living in Washington, DC during the political unrest of the last few years, releasing his live album from Cafe Carlisle, and how the characters that populate last year’s The Loves of Your Life all seem to be running from someone.
