Shut Up and Listen - Issue #3
By Justine Goode • Issue #3 • View online
A letter about every podcast I listened to this week.

Last night, I fell asleep listening to one of my current favorite podcasts, By the Book. This is not an uncommon way for me to end a night—except this time, I was in the back of a Lyft, and extremely tipsy after seeing Drake perform at MSG.
I almost definitely tanked my Lyft user rating by immediately putting on my headphones, tuning into the duclet tones of Kristen Meinzer and Jolenta Greenberg, and then promptly dozing off.
But, you know, priorities.
This wasn’t the easiest week, and for whatever reason, I gravitated towards podcasts with musical themes.
These podcasts paid tribute to Aretha Franklin, dissected the beef between Nicki Minaj and Travis Scott, and introduced me to the song Beyoncé sampled for “Crazy In Love” (“You Are My Woman (Tell Me So)” by the Chi-Lites). In a little bit of pod-ception, Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye interviewed the host of the Song Exploder podcast (featured in last week’s letter) on his podcast.
As always, I really want to hear about what podcasts you’re listening to! You can submit recommendations HERE.
