I only discovered this podcast as this episode came up as a bonus episode for Uncover’s satanic panic season. Subscribed after listening to this one - well produced, well presented and very interesting.

If you have young kids or have friends with young kids, this is a must listen! Sounds from toys are *way* too loud right now because of marketing purposes, and they're loud enough to damage kids ears. Be careful! The first part of the episode is pretty nostalgic: Chatty Cathy, Tickle Me Elmos, Furbies, and Tamagotchis!

Though I've heard this story many times in other media I invite every opportunity to listen to a story about John Cage; I find both his work and his thinking endlessly fascinating. At the end you'll have a chance to stage your very own performance of 4'33". I urge you to have an open mind and please not skip or trim out this section!

This new 9 part miniseries of Radiolab's Jad Abumrad just premiered today. An exploration of a pop culture icon than on a surface level is regarded as a boob joke in late night shows but whose songs explore the evolution of women in America.

The rise of K-Pop in North America has been rapid. Now that K-pop is experiencing such success on its own terms, the questions it faces are changing. Should K-pop acts release English-language music? To what degree should they focus on collaborations with non-Korean artists?
