Matthew Wrather is joined by Jordan Stokes to overthink the funk episode of Glee. Topics covered including the re-Africanization of popular music, music as a mark of group membership, otherness and identity, the unwed mothership connection, territory, class and crappy jobs, and the instrumental value of sexual agression.
There will be no spoiler warnings and there will be many naughty words. If either of those things bothers you, don’t click!
