Still Buffering

Trigger Warning: Mention of suicide, sexual harassment/assault

We've all dealt with sexism in some form at some point in our lives, as cool teens, as cool adults, and everywhere in between. So let's talk about how this seemingly unavoidable part of life has changed and maybe not changed throughout the years. (Also we have some pretty important teen updates for you, Snapchat didn't work for about 3 hours, it was a state of emergency in the teen world.)

Inside Pop Ep. 99- Thor: Ragnarok, N.E.R.D & Rihanna “Lemon”, Sexual Harassment in Hollywood

Inside Pop

This week, Christmas comes early in the form of the new single "Lemon" from N.E.R.D & Rihanna! We try (and fail) to contain our excitement about the song, video and their upcoming album. We provide an N.E.R.D primer and also bow down to the dancer in the music video- Mette Towley.

Then, Sean gives a review of Thor: Ragnarok he was not expecting to give; and we question whether we're in the midst of a superhero films and TV overload.

Plus, we have a frank discussion about the recent sexual harassment allegations in Hollywood - our reactions, opinions and a personal story.

And of course- there is no Inside Pop without the Big Sell! Amita gives her thoughts, rating and review on Sean's suggestion- the music documentary George Michael: Freedom and sells Sean on an innovative floral artist Makoto Azuma.

Ross and Carrie Traverse Flat Earth (Part 1): Pizza-Shaped Earth Edition

| 0 comments

After six years of searching for Flat Earth groups, Ross and Carrie had thought they might never find one with a following near them. That is, until about a year ago, when the age-old belief exploded back onto the, er, global scene. Listen as Ross and Carrie join their local flat earth meetup group and learn why NASA has been lying all this time, which quick tests prove our "planet" is flat, and where Antarctica REALLY is.

The album: Common: Like Water For Chocolate (MCA, 2000)

This week, we are joined by Los Angeles rapper, Ill Camille. She picked Common's Like Water For Chocolate from 2000, a moment that marked the Chicago's turn towards becoming a hip-hop elder statesman, backed by the production might of the Soulquarians crew. Camille's love for the album runs deep and during the course of our taping, she'd bust out Common's rhymes, line for line.
