    Spice Girls: The Group That Changed Feminism and The Media Forever

    1:00:32

    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?

    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.

    Fanfiction, But Make it Gay: From the Emo Scene to Larry Stylinson

    1:21:07

    If you grew up as a teen on the internet, odds are you came across fanfiction of your favorite band – whether by accident or on purpose. And if you dove even farther in, you wound up discovering Slash Fiction... Reading/writing fanfiction is a totally normal way to participate in fandom! But of course, anything loved by teen girls is stigmatized.  But why was Slash Fiction so popular within the emo music scene? What came first, the fictionalized romances of favorite band members or the on stage homoeroticism? How far is too far when you’re writing fanfiction about real people? And did slash fiction really ruin Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles’ friendship?  We’re unpacking all of this and so much more with the help of Dr Judith Fathallah, cultural studies academic specializing in fandom and emo music. And if you’ve read this far and have no clue what we’re talking about – don’t worry, we’re breaking it down piece by piece.  Follow the links to learn more about Judith’s work on fanfiction, emo culture and stage-gay.

    Pete Wentz To Harry Styles: How Assumed Queerness Has Changed

    1:09:00

    Harry Styles is not the first straight man assumed to be queer. Years before Harry Styles was praised for carrying a rainbow flag around on stage and ignoring questions about his sexuality, Pete Wentz dominated the covers of gay magazines while proclaiming to be straight.  So is Harry Styles really a queer icon? Was Pete Wentz ever one?  In this episode, we’re examining assumed queerness and its cultural impact from Pete Wentz and the rampant homophobia of the early 2000s to Harry Styles and the androgynous fashion acceptance of the present day.
