What has been the best single year in pop culture? For Nina, it's 1999 in film; for Will, nothing tops the music of 1977. They each dissect the calendar year they chose and what made it so influential — and they take a look at some recent years that might make the cut. Clips used: - "Venus" by Television - "Speed of Life" by David Bowie - "Oh Bondage, Up Yours!" and "Plastic Bag" by X-Ray Spex
“________, I love you, but you’re bringing me down.” In this episode, Nina and Will discuss odes: in this case, those works of art that pay homage specifically to a place, whether that’s a state, a city, or a single street.
