In this episode, Nathan and Jen discuss the annoying aspects of social media, a one word trend, a 40 year old book, unexpected music genres relating to a “Superstar” and a “Boy” who is doing very well for himself after all these years. As always, they also bring you lots of interesting podsafe music for you to enjoy.
