Podcasts of the Week Ending November 2


Hit Parade :: The Lost and Lonely Edition

In the 1980s, a number of UK bands bridged the gap between post-punk and what would be called alternative music, with moody goth/emo lyrics and droning vocals combined with dance pop: The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus, Joy Division, New Order, and the Smiths.  This is what the “cool kids” were listening to when I was in high school, so there’s a lot of nostalgia here.

The War on Cars :: The Automotive Police State

Cars are often equated with freedom, but in this podcast we learn the mass production of cars lead to a massive increase in policing and the erosion of 4th Amendment rights. This is a must-listen.
