Welcome to another WWBUT, in which we discuss dubious interpretations of the word “fun,” the tragedy of this season of The Great British Bake-Off, and Missy does an increasingly stressed-out speedrun of her feelings on Squid Game.
Our lists this week are a good reminder of why we don’t usually take much time off. Buckle in, it’s a long one!
Welcome to episode 78, in which we discuss Polarity by Max Bemis, the lyricist and vocalist for Say Anything, one of the major bands of our adolescence. We’re talking about catharsis, about audience, and about hypocrisy, because Polarity is a lot to digest while simultaneously being very little.
We’re returning to our roots in episode 77, all about pop punk, the music that made us the weirdos we are today. Despite all the pogoing and mashing, there’s some serious questions to be had about the treatment of women in the genre, especially in light of recent allegations.
