Take a trip down memory lane with Wynter, Karen and Margaret as they revisit 1991 in music. If you’ve ever been curious what song was playing when Karen experienced her first same sex kiss, tune in. If you grew up in the nineties, this episode will bring you back to that moment in time. If you spent your formative years in the aughts, and want to experience the 90s vicariously through Pop Rocket, the panel goes into great detail about what makes 1991 such a pivotal epoch, giving us grunge, new jack swing, schmaltzy ballads and music fans that could embrace Nirvana, Boys II Men, C+C Music Factory and REM at once.

As an added bonus, we created a Pop Rocket 1991 Mixtape that you can listen to on Spotify.

Sleater Kinney's Corin Tucker & filmmaker Lance Bangs On Mixing Up Marriage, Music, Movies

Corin Tucker is a rock legend. She sang and played guitar for Sleater Kinney and a bunch of other projects. These days she's also collaborating with REM's Peter Buck in the new band Filthy Friends.

Lance is a renowned director who works mostly in music videos and comedy. He’s worked with Nirvana, Odd Future, Jen Kirkman, Hannibal Buress just to name a handful. He's also been very involved with the Jackass movies and TV shows. If you've ever seen them do something on film that was so gross it made the cameraman puke that cameraman was probably Lance.

Lance and Corin tell Jesse about how they spent the last Valentine's Day and how they make their marriage and careers work after nearly two decades.
