Solid listen…

One of the better music podcasts, kind of confused by all the one star reviews. And what’s with all the millennial bashing?? We’re like 40 now…

I miss Puja

This was a great podcast, wonder how it will proceed now with all the changes at Pitchfork. The following is my old review (If you love the website, you’ll love the podcast. If you don’t like the website, well it’s Pitchfork.)

flangeslammer ,

the long fall of pitchfork doesn’t stop.

like their website and more recently their festival, this podcast is absolute garbage in 2023. if you’re not going to research a single thing about the subjects you speak about, well, then don’t speak about it. pitchfork losing their audience in full over a long, consistent curve is as sad as it is predictable when this is what they put out.
