The New England Patriots “deflate-gate” scandal, privilege in the arts and whether the latest music sales stats signal the end of the album. Wynter’s been to see The Boy Next Door and guy’s jam is a podcast about Canadian politics.

With Guy Branum, Wynter Mitchell, Oliver Wang and Margaret Wappler.

That’s My Jam:

Wynter Mitchell - Dots and Lines by Lupe Fiasco
Oliver Wang - Shake You Off by Charlie Belle
Margaret Wappler - Family by Bjork (Margaret also recommends this Pitchfork review)
Guy Branum - CBC’s Power and Politics podcast.
Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams (unless they’re Canadian political podcasts) to this handy Spotify playlist.

Other useful links this week…
Oliver thought Derek Thompson’s music sales trends article in The Atlantic was worth talking about. Margaret referenced Ann Baer’s “Sponsored” by my husband: Why it’s a problem that writers never talk about where their money comes from which appeared in Salon.
