Black Swan On A Spring Day

1/24/2020
On this episode we tried not to let BTS dominate the podcast…and failed. Of course, about 70% of the conversation is about racial dynamics in K-pop, so we can probably be forgiven. We also wax poetic about the atrociousness of the term “reggae hair,” and just how much better will Big Bang sound without Seungri? Also, get ready to put your cringe hats on, because Mnet has a hip-hop survival show in the works. Leave us a comment and let us know what you think about the show. Timestamps: 1:20...
