The most recent episode of the excellent Media Studies podcast, Aca-Media, features the study of popular music within the field. I am happy to be featured alongside some excellent colleagues. Below is a link to the episode as well as Aca-Media’s episode description:
We’re back with an extended summer episode courtesy of the SCMS Sound Studies Scholarly Interest Group (SIG). Produced by Tim Anderson, the episode features excellent segments with Jeremy Morris on music formats, metadata and tagging; Brian Fauteux on Canadian college radio; Joan Titus on Shostakovich and musicology; and Nina Cartier on Blaxploitation soundtracks. Enjoy your summer!
