Questions about the nature and function of music are often explored with reference to an established canon of “serious” music – while pop finds itself relegated to the margins. This week we’re getting serious about pop, and exploring the ways that the compositional and sonic structures of pop music reflect the social and political structures of the broader culture.
In light of recent flashpoints in so-called Black–Jewish relations, Contributing Writer Rebecca Pierce joins artists and activists Anthony Russell, Reuben…

This week we do a pretty depressing election recap and then promise to not talk about electoral politics for a very long time. Biden is allowing BLM protesters to face domestic terrorism charges from the Trump Administration for engaging in property destruction and harming no one. Starbucks sent management into 3 Buffalo area stores to quell talks of unionizing, and they can’t even take out the trash without pissing off workers. Marjorie Taylor Greene promises to abolish the prison industrial complex, and Sleepy Joe let one rip in front of the Duchess of Cornhole. What a time to be alive.

On this episode, Roqayah is out sick but Kumars spoke with Eric Holthaus, a meteorologist who writes about weather and science for a variety of outlets. He’s also the host of the podcast Warm Regards, where scientists, activists, and journalists join Eric to discuss climate change and what to do about it. Eric and Kumars begin by reviewing the relevant science, including the effect of climate change on extreme weather events; resources like land, air and water; and living organisms and ecosystems. We examine proposed political and technological fixes to the crisis, and their inadequacy in dealing with the magnitude of what we face. Finally, we discuss strategies for developing the mass movement that will be required for not only eliminating the use of fossil fuels, but also replacing them with an energy economy that provides for all people, not just the wealthy and powerful.
