In 1996, the Spice Girls took the world by storm, becoming the highest-selling girl group in history, and sharing their message of girl power so loud that it inspired the 4th wave of feminism – or at least we like to think so.  The rise of the Spice Girls came at a time when the 24-hour news cycle had just begun, meaning that the group are seared into the minds of every British citizen and every woman born between 1980 and 1993. The constant media attention was unparalleled, leaving the Spice Girls with no shred of privacy as newspapers slowly evolved into tabloids dissecting and criticizing every aspect of their lives. Join us as we break down the Spice Girls phenomenon – from their feminism Lite that inspired a generation to headlines they could not escape. Enjoy this episode?

    R&B: The Black Women Who Paved the Way Without the Recognition with R&B expert Maya Abrams

    1:23:42

    While R&B has been intertwined into popular music seamlessly in recent years, the women who pioneered the genre haven’t received the same recognition as the pop stars who were inspired by them.  Artists like Brandy (aka the vocal bible) and Lauryn Hill (the first black woman to win Best New Artist at the 1999 Grammys) have had their share of fame, but never were allowed to reach A-list fame alongside the likes of Britney Spears or Ariana Grande.  This week we’re looking back at history and discussing the ways in which these R&B singers were put into a box and what we can learn from them to give black artists the recognition they deserve.  If you want to check out Maya’s podcast, you can do so here or follow her on Instagram or TikTok.  Enjoy this episode?

    Pop Stars Never Asked to Be Your Role Model

    1:13:27

    When young female artists develop into budding pop stars, they’re thrust into more than just the limelight – they’re faced with the responsibility of being a role model whether or not they wanted it.  In 1999, Britney Spears stepped onto the world stage, walking the line of a polished, youthful pop star on the verge of womanhood. Britney as a brand could be a prim and proper role model marketed to kids, but this left no room for her to grow into a woman or make mistakes as an adult. This week we’re discussing the pressure placed on pop stars to be role models, the ways in which we all contribute to this expectation, and how the idea of a role model has changed from the early 2000s tabloid era to the 2020s era of social media.  Enjoy this episode?

    1:04:55

    Undoubtedly Free Britney was one of the biggest moments of 2021, creating an uproar of public outrage and opening the conversation for how we treat female pop stars.

    The Lasting Impact of Toxic Tabloid Culture

    1:13:12

    To this day clickbait headlines about celebrities ravage the internet and tabloid newspapers line grocery store checkouts and newsstands. In the late 90s, the Spice Girls were equally beloved and smeared by headlines. In the 00s, headlines storied the downfall of pop stars like Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, treating them as objects rather than humans. But how did this all start? This week we’re diving into the history of headlines, the way it feeds into human voyeurism, and the ethics of it all. Plus, we examine how the peak of tabloid cultures in the 00s continues to impact pop culture today. Enjoy this episode? Join our Patreon community or leave us a tip on PayPal!  Want to talk more?

    The Power of A Female Voice in Songwriting with Jenna Andrews

    1:00:44

    We know the music industry has a gender equality issue, but looking at the stats of songwriting teams is shocking – only 12.6% of songwriters are women and only 2.6% of producers are women, according to a report by the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative.  One of those powerhouse women behind many of today’s hits like BTS’ “Butter” and Benee’s “Supalonely” is Jenna Andrews. We caught up with Jenna to get her insights on everything from learning to find your voice as a woman and advocate for yourself to the importance of speaking about mental health. Plus, we get her take on what it’s like to be the only woman in a room full of male songwriters and producers and the lessons she’s learned along the way. You can follow Jenna Andrews on Instagram and Twitter and check out her recent work on “Always Been You” by Jessie Murph and “Blondes” by Blu DeTiger. Enjoy this episode?

    Girl Groups Were the Original Punk Icons with Kurt Suchman

    1:04:16

    What if we told you that early 1960s girl groups were punk before punk music existed? We’re taking a look back in history to connect the seemingly unlikely dots between these two.  Years before The Beatles set foot in America, The Shirelles had wild success as a respectable girl group, paving the way for The Ronettes and The Shangri-Las to take the same sounds and put a distinct rebellious edge to the lyrics and appearance.  This teenage rebellion led to inspiring a generation of punk legends like The Ramones and Blondie.  This week we’re joined by music and culture journalist Kurt Suchman to rediscover a pivotal piece of music history.  If you want to check out more of Kurt’s work, you can do so here or follow them on Instagram or Twitter.  Enjoy this episode?

    Minority Voices in Music: The Asian American Conundrum

    1:20:50

    If you think of Asian American music stars who comes to mind? It’s no coincidence that the biggest Asian American stars – Bruno Mars, Olivia Rodrigo, Anderson Paak, Saweetie, H.E.R. – are all mixed-race individuals who don’t typically read as Asian. So why is that?  This week we’re joined by music journalist Emily Tan to discuss how the music industry has seemingly left an entire race out of the conversation. From being told they’ll never make it as a star to not being Asian enough, there’s a never-ending list of why Asian American musicians are underrepresented in the music industry.  If you want to check out more of Emily’s work, you can do so here or follow her on Instagram or Twitter.  Enjoy this episode?

This week we’re taking a closer look at Ariana’s career and the challenges she’s overcome to become a household name.

    Blackfishing, Cultural Appropriation and the Jesy Nelson Situation

    1:11:21

    Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus… and now Jesy Nelson. A growing list of pop artists who have used Black culture as an aesthetic for a song or an album cycle. The former on the list eventually discarded those same aesthetics when it no longer served them. (Stay tuned to find out if Jesy follows suit.)  This phenomenon is part of a larger cultural trend of Blackfishing. And although the term was coined in 2018, cultural appropriation and black face have been happening for centuries.  This week we’re digging in to understand what Blackfishing is, how it shows up in music, and exactly what went down with Jesy Nelson’s first solo song and music video after leaving Little Mix.
