This wild, wildly disorienting year is coming to a close, and as usual, the Popcast opened up its listener mailbag to tackle the questions that have been keeping listeners up at night (when they’re not up at night listening to Popcast, that is).
This year, the Popcast crew answers queries about many of the year’s biggest stars, and also some of its curious flops. Tune in for discussion of Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, MGK, Halsey, Phoebe Bridgers, the Strokes, Summer Walker, Miley Cyrus, Rina Sawayama, Justin Bieber, Harry Styles and many more.
