EPISODE 12 - Maddie Lee

Here is the twelfth episode of Swoonstep, a podcast where amazing ladies talk about music and their musician crushes. This week, Swoonstep officially goes international, and we’re joined by Canadian babe Maddie Lee to talk about Korean hip-hop reality TV show Show Me the Money and k-hip hop more generally. There are a surprising amount of parallels to be found, especially regarding women and sexism in hip-hop spaces. Our guest gives us the first of many “Ask a Canadian” Drake updates, and we talk about her favorite boy band growing up, 98 Degrees. We talk about a song called “Jackson Pollock D*ck,” and we get into Jeff Timmons new career. It gets wild, y’all.

Maddie is a tiny Canadian from Toronto but lives in Montreal now. She writes primarily about Korean pop, hip-hop, and R&B for The Singles Jukebox, The Toast, and at My First Love Story. You can also catch her on her personal Tumblr and Twitter, where she talks race, posts selfies, eats food, and cracks jokes. She is fun, gorgeous, giggly, thoughtful, and just generally wonderful to listen to. 

Shoot us a message if you’re a gal (or non-cis man) who wants to talk about music and the musicians that make you swoon hard, and thanks for listening!

This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Jack Whitten and was taped in front of a live audience at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. 

MCASD just opened the first Whitten retrospective. Titled "Jack Whitten: Five Decades of Painting," and curated by MCASD’s Kathryn Kanjo, the exhibition features 60 canvases from the early 1960s through this year. The show reveals how, at a time when so many artists shrugged off painting, Whitten intensified his interest in the medium by marrying acrylic and canvas to conceptual strategies in an effort to address key issues in art and American society. After it closes in San Diego on January 4, 2015, it will travel to the Walker Art Center and the Wexner Center for the Arts. 

This is the second time Whitten has been on The MAN Podcast. Last year he talked with host Tyler Green on the occasion of an exhibition at the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University. 

The image above is Whitten’s Dead Reckoning (1980), one of the ‘squeegee’ canvases that Green and Whitten discuss on this week’s program.

Economic realities and their theories define our world regardless of where we live. After a while, they deserve reexamination to see if they measure up to our needs, interests and values. This week Ellen visits with Prof. Cynthia Kaufman about her book Getting Past Capitalism and looks at some of its systemic failings and limitations. Similarly, students around the world are demanding reexamination of the prevailing economics canon hoping to institute a broader, more politically responsible view of economic theory.  Co-host Walt McRee talks with an organizer of the “Rethinking Money NY” conference taking place this weekend at Columbia.
