Best Arts & Culture podcast Webby 2020 winner about the making and meaning of popular music. Musicologist Nate Sloan & songwriter Charlie Harding pull back the curtain on how pop hits work magic on our ears & our culture. From Vulture and the Vox Media Podcast Network.
As a metal-head and progressive rock snob, I've been averse to anything popular or trendy on the charts. This show made me appreciate the craft of songwriting in ways that I'd never considered. A must for anyone who writes songs.
I have learned so much about music by listening to this podcast! It turns out that amazing pop songs are sometimes very, very complex. This podcast aims to tell you why you can't resist a great pop song. Highly recommended.
