On today’s episode we scratch the surface of Beyonce’s career by looking at some of the biggest headlines she generated over the course of her career. We reflect on how we were feeling in those moments and talk about what the public in general was thinking. We talk about Lemonade, the Digital Drop, Destiny’s Child’s disbandment and so much more.
On this episode we cover all the recent hearings in Britney Spears’ conservatorship from June 23rd to now. We also take a look at some of the conservatorship’s history to add context and cover all the drama and fallout that has occurred since.
Whew, it’s been a long year. We decided that we wanted to share where we’ve been on the personal side of things because we haven’t in a while. We talk about pregnancy, relationships and how they ended, and how we aren’t going to forget this last year as we move into the new normal.
This is it! The grande finale! We talk about Kate’s last 30 years (and we do it in 90 minutes, pretty impressive if you ask us). Kate becomes a mother (Peter Gabriel blows it). Kate gets a new lover and returns to the stage for the first time in 35 years.
We’re back, for not the last part of Kate, but ALMOST. Tiffany gets to learn about the colossal cultural reset of Hounds of Love and the sleeper hit The Sensual World. We get a new fun catchphrase to laugh at and also speculate the “what could possibly happen with Kate Bush in our lifetime” thing.
In our first Marina song bracket episode we put 8 of Marina’s songs head to head to begin to figure out which song is Marina’s best. Join us in this battle royale!
Today we walk through Kate’s third and fourth album, talk about their recording. We hear the first bad working experience someone else has with Kate, she experiences her first flop and also falls in love with technology.

Tom gets to live out a teenage fantasy by talking to Leslie Hunt. Leslie launched a kickstarter campaign to fund two new EPs. We talk about that, her recent diagnosis with ADHD and all of her old music. Leslie also is the frontwoman of prog rock band District 97. She had also appeared on season 6 of American Idol where she reached the semifinals and had an iconic send off. Listen to the episode now, what are you waiting for!
GO FUND LESLIE’S KICKSTARTER!
It’s time to talk about Kate Bush. Tom walks us all through her childhood right up to her fascinating and divisive first single, “Wuthering Heights.” Is she a feminist? How long did it take to get to Australia by boat in the 1960s? Does Tom even know what Wuthering Heights (the book) is about? The answer to that last question is NO!
