    Pitchfork Review: 100 Gecs and the Mystery of Hyperpop

    This week we’re lending our feed to our friends at The Pitchfork Review podcast. On this episode, Pitchfork Editor Puja Patel interviews Laura Les and Dylan Brady of 100 gecs, a band that’s polarized pop audiences with their genre-mashing, glitched-out, Auto-Tune-infused style. The three also discuss the musical conundrum hyperpop, a recent term devised to describe other up and coming artists that are pushing the boundaries of pop music. But is it a new genre or just a Spotify playlist? Is it an internet subculture or a meaningless buzzword? And who gets to decide what hyperpop is, streaming sites or a select group of artists?

    Can Pepe the Frog Ever Be Redeemed?

    If you know Pepe the Frog, it’s probably as a meme that white nationalists used to spread hate on the internet. But Pepe started out as a lovable character in a little-known webcomic created by cartoonist Matt Furie. This week on Get WIRED, Senior Editor Angela Watercutter interviews the filmmakers of the new documentary Feels Good Man about Pepe, meme magic, and Matt’s journey to try to take Pepe back from the trolls.

    That Election Was… Something

    That Election Was… Something

    We knew it might be an Election Day unlike any other. But after last Tuesday, it soon became evident that this year’s US presidential race would culminate in an election week. On this week’s Get WIRED podcast, we talk to Gilad Edelman, Lily Hay Newman, and Emma Grey Ellis about why the forecasting polls were so wrong (again), how we know we can trust the election results, and why people keep spinning up conspiracy theories online. Also: Election Memes.

    The Robots Are Coming

    The Robots Are Coming

    Boston Dynamics is one of those companies that either makes you feel like we’re living in a Black Mirror episode or like we’re on the cusp of technological innovation. Over the past decade they’ve made a name for themselves through viral videos that demonstrate unparalleled robotics engineering. You’ve probably seen some of these: robot dogs loading the dishwasher, a humanoid robot doing a backflip, a segue-like robot effortlessly moving heavy objects. And now, after almost 30 years, their products are finally on the market. Reporter Matt Simon talks to Marc Raibert, the founder of Boston Dynamics, to check in on the ambitious robotics company.
