Totally worth checking out.
If you dig pop cultural discussion through the lens of mostly music writers who are self-aware but NOT navel gazers you'll like this. In just a few episodes they've already tackled a number of different subjects but there's a POV that ties all of these together I find pretty refreshing. Try it out.
