    Introducing In Vogue: The 2000s

    Introducing In Vogue: The 2000s

    In season 2 of In Vogue: The 2000s, we explore how fashion fused with every aspect of pop culture to become a global entertainment engine ubiquitous in culture--impinging on the global consciousness like never before. From Nicholas Ghesquière awakening the sleeping fashion house of Balenciaga, to Vogue putting the couture into Juicy Couture, and discussing Carrie Bradshaw’s influence on trendy 2000s fashion with Sarah Jessica Parker, we cover the iconic looks that defined the decade. Hear how 9/11 led to the creation of the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund and ushered in the next generation of designers. We examine the colliding worlds of Vogue and Hollywood, and learn how the Met Gala became the Superbowl of fashion. We go behind the scenes of the most iconic fashion shoot of all time, where Annie Leibovitz and Grace Coddington transformed the designers of the decade into the characters of Alice in Wonderland, and sit down with the Brazilian Bombshell herself, Gisele Bündchen, who revolutionized modeling and the fashion industry, while on a meteoric rise to international celebrity status.

    The Best and Worst of Everything Else

    The Best and Worst of Everything Else

    Everything else aside, 2020 was a banner year for music. In addition to some truly stellar albums and songs, there was also plenty of sillier stuff to dig into: misguided anthems about the pandemic, casual covers and collaborations, good and bad tweets galore, and of course, Bernie Sanders introducing the Strokes and Soccer Mommy. On this episode, Pitchfork Editor Puja Patel is joined by Associate Editor Anna Gaca and News Editor Matthew Strauss for a senior superlatives-style rundown of the best and worst in these categories and more. Thanks for listening to the Pitchfork Review this year! We’ll be back with new episodes in 2021.

    Fiona Apple’s Perfect 10

    Fiona Apple’s Perfect 10

    Fiona Apple’s Fetch the Bolt Cutters isn’t just the best album of 2020, it’s the sort of masterpiece that defines an entire era. On this episode, Pitchfork Editor Puja Patel is joined by Contributing Editor Jenn Pelly, who wrote Pitchfork’s 10 Fetch the Bolt Cutters review and spent the year in communication with Apple for a series of follow-up pieces, and Features Editor Ryan Dombal, who wrote Pitchfork’s previous 10 review a decade ago—for Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy—and worked closely with Pelly on her Apple coverage. The three discuss the brilliance of Fetch the Bolt Cutters, and Apple’s unorthodox approach to making it; as well as the process of deciding that an album should receive a perfect score, and what a 10 really means.

    Staff Picks: The Year in Rock and Rap

    Staff Picks: The Year in Rock and Rap

    In the latest installment of our year-end podcast coverage, we’re talking about 2020’s best rock and rap albums. Pitchfork Editor Puja Patel is joined by News Editor Evan Minsker, Contributing Editor Jayson Greene, and Staff Writers Alphonse Pierre and Madison Bloom, who argue in favor of their personal favorites, from Yves Tumor and U.S. Girls to Westside Gunn and Jay Electronica. They also get into some broader discussions about the state of the genres more generally, including: Which old heads or new kids ruled rap in 2020? And what does “rock” even mean these days?

    Get WIRED: Archive and Survive: How radio Lives On

    Get WIRED: Archive and Survive: How radio Lives On

    This week we're lending our podcast feed to our friends at WIRED. In this episode of Get WIRED, as protests filled the streets this summer, WIRED Senior Writer Jason Parham went looking for radio broadcasts from 1992, when he watched Los Angeles go up in flames. What he found instead was a trove of broadcasts from throughout his 1990s coming of age, archived by a French YouTuber. Parham goes on to talk with cultural critic Jace Clayton, also known as DJ Rupture, about how the move from analog to digital has changed our relationship to music.

    Afrobeats’ Global Takeover

    Afrobeats’ Global Takeover

    Over the last several years, American listeners have grown more and more attuned to the sounds of West African pop music—also known as Afrobeats–whether it’s the swaggering Nigerian Afro-fusion of Burna Boy, the playfully genre-bending anthems of Ghanaian-American singer Amaarae, or the enthusiastic dabbling of stateside superstars like Drake and Diplo. On this episode, Pitchfork Editor Puja Patel is joined by Nigerian journalist Joey Akan, publisher of the Afrobeats Intelligence newsletter, and Mankaprr Conteh, Pitchfork Editorial Operations Associate, for a discussion about the music’s global rise and the West’s complicated rush to embrace it, as well as the fraught nature of the term “Afrobeats” itself.

Not very good

Pitchfork deserves a better podcast than this.

Bla

These guys are moooorons. Seriously, they are idiots who think they’re super smart. They have been in the elite, media bubble for way too long, so they have no idea that there are things that are more important in the world than their stupid politics, which they will not shut up about. They also just don’t have anything interesting to talk about.
P.S: if they say something is their “fave” again, I’m gonna drop my rating to 1 star. However, how would I know, cuz I’m not listening anymore 🙉.

Absurd

Listening to their year-end “rock” picks was so embarrassing. I want to hang myself from the secondhand shame.
