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.
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.
