    Black Swan On A Spring Day

    Black Swan On A Spring Day

    On this episode we tried not to let BTS dominate the podcast…and failed. Of course, about 70% of the conversation is about racial dynamics in K-pop, so we can probably be forgiven. We also wax poetic about the atrociousness of the term “reggae hair,” and just how much better will Big Bang sound without Seungri? Also, get ready to put your cringe hats on, because Mnet has a hip-hop survival show in the works. Leave us a comment and let us know what you think about the show.

    NYAN Minisode: Call Me Baby

    NYAN Minisode: Call Me Baby

    As expected, it's time for a special episode devoted to Chen from EXO's upcoming baby and nuptials. Nat and Jemin break down what this means for K-pop, if anything, and somehow tie idol fan culture to life, the universe and everything.

    Jopping Into The New Year

    Jopping Into The New Year

    We're back with the first episode of the new year, and don't worry, we've still got plenty to say! K-pop is giving us more than enough to look forward to in 2020, with new relationships, scandals and proof that Big Bang isn't dead yet! We've also got some special things in the pipeline for the podcast, so keep your eyes peeled!

    NYAN's Top 100 K-pop Songs of the Decade Part 1

    NYAN's Top 100 K-pop Songs of the Decade Part 1

    It’s the definitive K-pop list of the decade! Well, in our minds it is. Join Ashe, Nat and Jemin as they debate and create Not Your Average Netizens Top 100 K-pop Songs of the Decade. It’s so colossal we needed two podcasts to record it all! In Part One, we whittle down an unwieldy collection of our favorite songs down to the best 100, and battle over our individual picks. Part Two documents the considerable struggle of assigning our favorites their all-important number on the list. Will we prevail in formulating the ultimate K-pop of the decade primer, or lose our sanity in the process? Only one way to find out! Check out both episodes and let us know what you think. Do you agree with our picks? What would you put in their place? Let us know, and don’t forget to listen, like and share the episode on Soundcloud!

I can do without the umms from the main host

I like the show... However, I wish instead of just one person being brief/prepared about a topic...that the other co-hosts' would have a basic knowledge about what's going on ... Like (Tim?) who is my fave goes off on these rants, but sometimes he is wrong about facts...but yet you still like his voice and need to hear him speak...overall the show is worth a listen

If you like hot takes and poor production...

It’s a shame there aren’t more k-pop podcasts out there because you end up having to settle for things like NYAN. As much as they like to call out other so-called netizens for their lack of ability to use Google and YouTube, they lack the ability to look up things like facts before forming a position on a topic, get names correct, and watch videos or even listening to actual songs before forming an opinion. It’s clear they have their favorites, and that is fine. It’s just too bad that they can’t seem to give any critical insight except to compare anyone they either haven’t personally heard of or don’t favor with a group from their own personal playlist. “It doesn’t do it for me,” isn’t critique, its laziness. I enjoy sass and cutting criticism, it just needs to come from a place where I can respect where you’re coming from. Production-wise, the echoing is unforgivable: get some headphones, people. Maybe one with a mic, because I should not hear what’s going on the room while you’re using your computer’s built-in audio. I imagine they’ll benefit from playing their recording back before releasing it, too—they’ll then hear some of their vocal nuisances. For example, when they talk about a controversy, the host can’t seem... to talk... in more... than two... words before pausing... as if she is unsure of her position and weary of the blowback. And they must be aware of the targets on their backs because they spend half the time trashing fans themselves, for their taste, their reactivity, and for their negativity. If they believe that reactive trashing online is the norm with k-pop fandoms, perhaps they should change the podcast name: Completely Average Netizens.

Would have been close to five stars

Would have been close to five stars but lately it’s turned into a BTS podcast lately. Not that I would generally mind but I started to listen because of the variety of topics. But every topic turns into a BTS conversation.
