Popular Music: The Podcast

Jan 21, 2019

IT IS THE ONE-HUNDREDTH EPISODE OF POPULAR MUSIC: THE PODCAST AND WE ARE YELLING BECAUSE WE ARE BOTH HAPPY AND SAD!  In this milestone episode, we sadly say goodbye to Steven - as it is his last as a co-host, but we welcome brand spanking (with consent) NEW co-host, Omar Najam (Sunnydale Study Group/Thank You For Questing/2 Broke Geeks)! We could think of no better way to celebrate the duality of this episode than to talk FOR TWO SOLID HOURS about the myriad of emotions on Carly Rae Jepsen’s touchstone album named, what else, EMOTION. It’s a full album review and I doubt you’ll find a more intense, joyous, attentive, and loving review of this album, Carly. PS. Come on the podcast.


No guilt. Only pleasure. Popular Music is a pop music podcast hosted by Steven Ray Morris and Analise Nelson. New episodes every Monday.
