Episode 45 - Fell In Love With a Girl

The best value on the Internet returns as special guest, Jack Every, and I give you a 1000% markup when talking about The White Stripes' "Fell In Love With a Girl".  We two stalwart educators debate the true meaning of a mellow roll, decry the injustice that was music in 2001, and mix whatever they can remember from undergrad psychology into the expounding of their deep thoughts about a three-minute song.  Subscribe on YouTube to see this episode built entirely out of Lego.

Please very much enjoy!

Episode 44 - Fit But You Know It

Cor, blimey, gov'ner.  It's the end of hip-hop month and we close out with a personal fav of mine, "Fit But You Know It" by the Streets.  Special guest, Diana Parry-Cruwys, tries to remember where she first heard this song while I quiz her on the finer points of British slang.  All in time for tea with the Queen.  And fish and chips.  And Doctor Who.

Pardon Diana's audio.  Someone set the microphone wrong.  Probably Danger Mouse or Thomas the Train.  Odds bodkins.

Please very much enjoy!

Sorry, folks!

Hey, everyone.  Due to some poor planning on my part, I wasn't able to book a guest or even prepare a solo episode for you all.  So, sadly, we'll be taking this week off to do some catch-up.  If you're really jonesing for the sound of my voice, check out ABA Inside Track, a podcast about applied behavior analysis.  It's just like songs!

Episode 43 - Burn Hollywood Burn

Who better to discuss Public Enemy's "Burn Hollywood Burn" than one of my favorite movie critics? Christien Murawski from the Qt3 Movie Podcast stops by to share his love of Chuck D's sweet, sweet voice and to spark up a conversation about race in TV and film.  Is the Hollywood of 2016 doing a better job representing non-whites in movies than in 1990? And what exactly would a "good job" even look like?  All this plus a seeeeecret movie recommendation from Christien.  And it's not Steel Magnolias.

LISTENER NOTE: We discuss explicit lyrics explicitly in this one so your personal discretion is advised.

Please very much enjoy!

And please enjoy listening to more of Christien on his show, the Quarter to Three Movie Podcast.
