    So so haven’t commented in a long time despite having something to say about nearly every episode because I keep feeling like I should listen to the entire album and epsidoe before I say anything, and by then I’ve forgotten what I wanted to say.

    So when I saw you were going to talk Halsey I decided I should jump in early because somehow she has managed to be a guilty pleasure even though I don’t believe in them, and also at about 15 minutes in this episode is already feels like a fun throwback to an earlier era of the podcast.

    I actually encountered her first as a Tumblr personality, but her music on a Pandora station that I listen to at work based on some former TFT artists (I think CHVRCHES was the inital seed) – and she stood out because the song from Badlands that came on was “Strange Love” , which memorably features metrically important “fuck”s both in its second line and in its big pop hook. That actually still felt novel in a song that otherwise sounds as commercial as it does – but also of course made me think of this podcast.

      (I never listened to any Halsey! Not sure if I should be admitting this here…)
