Fangirl Nonsense: Sara takes us on a journey into her world of video games and Jenna is obsessing over Sabrina Carpenter

News: We have an update in the wake of the Ashton Kutcher character letter for Danny Masterson upheaval in Ashton stepping down from his role as Chairman of the Board for Thorn, the anti-sex trafficking organization. His resignation letter was made public where he acknowledges his error in judgment, but not what that error was, and continues to call SA survivors, victims. We discuss this before an exciting episode replay!

Since it's Jenna's birthday we're doing a throwback of her magnum-opus episode from February of 2022, Performance Art & 2009’s Pivotal Pop Moment. A deep dive episode into what exactly was going on in 2009 that room for the success of Kesha, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga...

What made the 2009 such a weird time for pop music? America was in a weird place, and we were moving on from the bubble gum pop girlies and towards more rock ‘n’ roll laced pop icons. But when 3 women came on the scene with a clear idea of what they wanted to do, they changed pop forever. By bringing performance art into their personas, they created a pivotal moment in 2009’s pop.

When you think Ke$ha, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, you might not instantly connect them to each other. But they were all making waves in music and changing the typography of what pop music could be when they entered the pop culture zeitgeist in 2009. This week we’re looking into what their specific brands of pop music meant for music as a whole, and what entering popstar stardom in your early 20s can mean for a woman’s career.
