Misogyny in Pop Music: The Nice Guys and the Pick Me Girls 

TW: Attacks on women are mentioned between 06:02-06:35 

We're diving back into the world of misogyny in songwriting, but this time we're focusing on pop music released over the past 15 years. We touched on all your favorites, nobody is safe, we cover 5 Seconds of Summer, Ed Sheeran, One Direction, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Avril Lavigne, Paramore and even Harry Styles, nobody is safe this week. The two main misogyny tropes that are repeated by these artists are "the nice guy trope" and the "pick me girl trope" otherwise known as "the cool girl trope." The psychology behind how these aren't just harmless media tropes but can genuinely be detrimental to not just those who listen to these songs, but the people who write them is mind-boggling. 61% of women who have been murdered, were murdered by a man they were lead to believe loved them, and growing up with songs like these burrowing deep into our psyches and changing how we view women can breed this kind of behavior. So buckle up and listen to this informative yet hilarious rendition of Name 3 Songs.

The Many Controversies of Lana Del Rey with Sleepover Cinema 

Could we really be a podcast challenging sexism and not critically analyze Lana Del Rey, of course not? So this week we're joined by two Lana super fans, Hannah and Audrey Leach of Sleepover Cinema Podcast, to talk us through not only the many controversies of Lana Del Rey's career but also of being a Lana fan. From her infamous Saturday Night Live debut to her Instagram notes app call out of fellow women in pop, very few stones go unturned. What exactly did Lana mean when she said "I'm not, not a feminist." Why does every interviewer speak of her like she's a nymph princess that is chronically late to all press meetings? Is Lana Del Rey really a problem, or has her open and honest love for older men with rope kinks caused us to look at her under a microscope and call out every little indiscretion? Tune in to hear of the many controversies of Lana Del Rey.

Mental Health & Sexism on Tour with Miyoko Esco 

TW: SEXUAL MISCONDUCT, SUBSTANCE ABUSE, MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES

It's every music fans dream to one day get to go on tour, but did you know that over seventy percent of all musicians battle with mental health issues? On top of that only twenty-three percent of professionals in the music industry identify as female or nonbinary. So this week we're joined by Miyoko Esco who is a touring crew member with over seven years of experience under her belt to unpack all this. We discuss what's in place to help those struggling while out on the road, and what she feels could be changed to help out with the mental health burden that comes with being on the road for most of the year. We discuss in detail the added hardships of being a female on the road, from feeling the need to nurture fellow crew members, to unwanted sexual advancements and what it's like when there is actually wanted sexual tension between two members of a touring party. Learn about all this and more on this week's episode of Name 3 Songs.

The Inescapable Misogyny in Songwriting 

The number of times we've listened to a song, as female-identifying humans, and thought "wait... does this singer hate me..." are truly too many to count. So in this week's episode, we decided to look deeper into why misogyny in songwriting is so inescapable. From the crooners of the 60s, to the rockstars of the 80s all the way to modern times with pop-punk and emo music to popstars like Ed Sheeran and even Taylor Swift, you'll be hard-pressed to not find at least one song that's hating on women. From straight forward women-hating lyrics all the way to singers poetically waxing their way through hidden misogyny, it's inescapable. This conversation is just scratching the surface of all the ways songwriters have made sure to let their biggest fans know that they don't respect the women who love them with no abandon.

Fangirls: Secret Marketing Geniuses with Sydney Stein 

This week we're joined by the superfan strategist and music marketing intellect Sydney Stein to talk all things fandom marketing. We discuss the power behind impassioned fangirls and how their promotional tactics on social media platforms are really just doing free marketing campaigns for record labels. We talk fan campaigns like One Direction fans and Project No Control to 5 Seconds of Summer fans and their CALM Promotion Challenge to BTSARMY and their charity work. We also dive into artists that see the hard work their fans are doing and jump in on the action, like Taylor Swift and her easter eggs and her Tumblr actively and honestly just every second of her existence. We also discuss Halsey and how she created an all-encompassing world for her fans to get lost in with Badlands and how Miley Cyrus saw a fan account thriving and hired it's owner to work on her digital marketing team.

Just Being Miley: From Twerking to Rockstar Status 

We finally decided to pass the Bechdel test and do an episode revolving around a woman in music. We thought it'd be fitting as mid-range millennials to discuss a major part of the pop-culture discourse over the past decade, Miley Cyrus. Miley's career began by being the poster child of Disney Channel, starring in one of their most beloved shows, Hannah Montana. As she became an adult her journey to finding herself was an uphill battle and a rocky road all in one. In this episode we dive deep into how Miley reached the rockstar heights she's reached today. Starting from her 2008 Vanity Fair cover "scandal" to the VMAs spectacle with Robin Thicke to appropriating hip-hop culture to finally finding her niche with rock music this year. Come for the scandal and stay for the growth we always love to see hear about.

Stories From The 1975's Early Days with Pause It Play It Podcast 

This week we're revisiting our favorite foursome, The 1975, but with a bit of a twist. We've invited the brilliant Josh and Matt from Pause It Play It, The 1975 Podcast to discuss what it's been like being male fans of this band that the media claims is mainly for girls. The pair have been long time fans, with Matt even seeing them play in Manchester before they really knew what they were doing. We talk about the differences between the UK and US music scene, and what it's like loving a band even when you feel you may have outgrown them. The discussion gets deep and it gets hilarious and it's really an incredible ride.

The Importance of Groupies to Rock n Roll with Erica Campbell 

This week we delve into the world of groupies with music journalist and all around amazing gal Erica Campbell. We cover everything from the heyday of groupies in the late 60s to 70s focusing heavily on the queen of groupies herself Pamela Des Barres to what it means to be a groupie in the modern world. Are all women who are involved in music really groupies? We unpack that sentiment. From the dolls of the 70s to Alexa Chung coining leaning into the term "professional groupie" to the girls on MySpace letting their Warped Tour hero boytoys lead them to the power and fame they so rightfully deserve, groupies come in all shapes and sizes. Join us for an incredible discussion into what it really means to be a groupie.
