  1. note for pedantic listeners: This podcast was recorded before Zendaya left the Aaliyah biopic. There might also be some minor changes to the charts since then.

  2. though the zendaya/aaliyah part is still interesting! and there’s a lot of speculation about whether zendaya jumped or was pushed. is this project DOA? please discuss.

  3. “DJ Mustard should be a McDonald’s character” – <333

  4. Why is her alternate universe “drunk aunt” character “shaped by men”? Because she’s defined by sex?

    Does this mean Nick Cave’s ladykiller characters are shaped by women?

  5. the impression I got was that this was in terms of critical/listener response. (which means that yeah, how Nick Cave’s ladykiller characters get perceived in the real world probably has something to do with women, given how massive a female fanbase he has)

  6. “Mother, May I Collaborate With Drake?” — amazing podcast, everyone!

  7. Drake should play Aaliyah

  8. heyaaaaaa, will there be an iTunes version soon?

  9. As in on the iTunes store? I hope for the next one.


  10. I’d caution against using that Sendspace download. I ended up with some malware.
