Popular Music: The Podcast

May 6, 2019

Genre-defying and catchy AF, Omar and Analise talk about *arguably* one of the most defining (if not THE most defining) songs of 2019 so far - and it all began as a Tik Tok challenge! Omar will talk about why Billboard charts are completely unfair (spoiler: it involves not letting this be categorized as a country jam) and Analise will teach everyone about what she likes to call the “cowboy interval” and why it reminds her of two dudes at a saloon or something (that’s what happens in westerns yeah?).




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