Switched on Pop is a gripping conversational podcast about the intricate details of music. If you’ve ever wondered why a song makes you feel the way it does, you need to listen to musicologist Nate Sloan and songwriter/producer Charlie Harding chop it up about the science and reason behind today’s top hits. My current favorite episode of Switched on Pop is “How Streaming Changed the Sound of Pop.”
Whether you are an audio engineer or a casual music fan you will find something interesting and exciting in Switched On Pop. Follow your musical curiosity and check it out today.
Song Exploder is a podcast that interviews artists to get the exclusive story behind their explosively popular songs. If you’re a sucker for behind-the-scenes content like I am, then you will love hearing outtakes, demos, scratch vocals, and unreleased concepts from your favorite artists. Song Exploder takes you beneath the surface of the polished song, revealing the struggle and hundreds of hours of revision and editing that goes into making a hit. Then after journeying with the artist through their creative process, each episode ends by playing the full length of the specific song of the day.
