16. Music, Activism, and Accelerated Capitalism w. Special Guest Dan Baggarly The B-Sides

    • Music

This week's episode is pure B-Sides: we're devoting the whole thing to an interview with a very special guest, Dan Baggarly of Philly-based bands Trash Boy and Little War. Dan has been a versatile musician and progressive activist for most of his life, and the thoughts that spill from his brain are well worth your time and ours. Together, we talk through questions like How do we align our music consumption with our politics? Accelerated capitalism's influence on the music industry is bad, no? What does it mean to care without giving in to despair? Should we be dunking on Spotify more often? Is indie pop a defined sub-genre? and Who will take the trash out when we're gone?

Songs played:
20:36 - Government Skatepark by Trash Boy
1:08:19 - Hellaware by Trash Boy
