Popular Music: The Podcast

Mar 25, 2019

Sometimes you know “the charts” are off because Omar and Analise insist that every middle schooler in the WORLD listened to this song on endless repeat in 2001. That’s right, kids. We’re doing the Mandy Moore CULT CLASSIC, “In My Pocket.” Omar touches on which countries gave this song the most love, while Analise tries not to embarrass herself like she did fanning over Mandy Moore in the last episode. Spoiler alert: she fails.



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