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.

Kaitlin Olson on "Sweet Dee" and the Morally Bankruptcy in It's Always Sunny on Philadelphia

Kaitlin Olson plays Sweet Dee on the long-running sitcom It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Dee is the only female member of "The Gang", a bunch of depraved, self-centered pals who run a bar. The Gang is constantly looking for ways to get rich quick, humiliate their enemies, get out of work, and prove once and for all the talent, charisma and brilliance they hold to be self-evident. In an unusual move for a solo female character, Dee doesn't serve to counterbalance the guys' bad behavior -- she absolutely matches their pace.

Olson talks to us about creating a more fully-fleshed character for Dee, how she came to comedy, and how she ended up dating (and marrying) her showrunner.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is currently in its tenth season. It airs Wednesday nights at 10pm on FXX.

Jeff Chang on Art, Race, and How Diversity Now Means "Them"

About ten years ago, Jeff Chang published his book Can't Stop Won't Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation. His new book is a sort of follow-up -- it chronicles some of the cultural and racial shifts we've experienced as a nation. It's called Who We Be: The Colorization of America.

Chang talks to us about what "diversity" means to us today, the struggle for artists to defy racial categorization, and how and why corporations embraced multiculturalism.
