  1. Sounds Good: Selector Series: Caleb Braaten from Sacred Bones Records

    Every month, we have one of our favorite music heads pick a few records for the monthly Vinyl Me, Please store and this month we’re joined by none other than Caleb Braaten, the founder of Sacred Bones Records. We talk the realities of starting a label from scratch, how Sacred Bones manages to maintain a lineup that is equally incredible and unpredictable, and we talk through his picks for our store. I’ve included the list of his album picks below with links that will let you give them a listen if you’re not familiar. Enjoy!

  2. The Ezra Klein Show - Why liberals and conservatives create such different media (with Danna Young)

    The debate over polarized media can make the two ecosystems sound equivalent. One is left, the other right, but otherwise they’re the same. That couldn’t be more wrong. They’re structured differently, they work differently, they value different things, they’re built atop different aesthetics. And behind all these differences is something we don’t talk about enough: their audiences, and what those audiences demand.

    Danna Young is an associate professor of communications at the University of Delaware and author of the forthcoming Irony and Outrage, a fascinating study of the differing aesthetics of the left and right media universes, and how those differences are rooted in the psychological composition of their audiences. This is tricky stuff to talk about, but it’s necessary for understanding why political media looks the way it does today.

  3. A Conversation with Jason Kottke

    Jason Kottke started in 1998, making it one of the oldest, still maintained blogs on the web with over 26,000 posts spanning topics from art and technology to design, culture, and general knowledge. This is a peek behind the scenes of Jason’s process, his philosophies, and general thoughts on the internet––where it’s been, and maybe where it’s going. We talked about what running the blog looks like now, how it’s changed over the years. The evolution of patronage models, and his current thoughts on them. We talked a bit about burn out and managing that tension between what you really want to do versus what may appear to be the path of success online. And about the increasingly challenging task of maintaining ownership over what you create online. We also compared and contrasted our experiences as an OG blogger versus an OG vlogger, and how terrible both of those words are.

  5. Episode 211: From Head Shops to Whole Foods w/ Josh Davis — The Nostalgia Trap

    What happened to the world of independently-operated head shops, feminist and black-owned bookstores, and health food markets that blossomed in the 1960s and 1970s? Josh Davis, professor history and author of ‘From Head Shops to Whole Foods: The Rise and Fall of Activist Entrepreneurs’, joins us to explain how a movement to change the world was slowly subsumed into the neoliberal hellscape of consumer capitalism.
