Ear Opening

I have always considered myself a pop music junkie, but didn’t realize how closed off I was to many artists and styles, until I listened to this podcast. It has opened my ears to so many artists and genres I would typically pass over. Educational, and entertaining!

Golden nerd glitter

This is simultaneously the nerdiest, meta-mental thing I’ve ever heard AND a super satisfying deep dive into the minutia of pop music. Smart and intriguing, gives good ear man, I dig it.
