Whitney is still on his honeymoon, so we have another Bonus Track this week. Switched on Pop is a podcast from songwriter Charlie Harding and musicologist Nate Sloan that decodes the meaning in pop music. This is one of our favorite episodes, where Charlie and Nate try to figure out if Carly Rae Jepsen's "I Really Like You" is the worthy sequel to the greatest pop song of our generation ("Call Me Maybe"), or if it's just a pale imitation of a possible one hit wonder.

Mish Way is the front-woman of the band White Lung. More screamer than singer, her voice is aggressive, and powerful. But she has also struggled with vocal injury. In this episode we talk with Mish about the intersection of vocal health and vocal identity and how a punk singer recovers when she loses her voice. For more, visit www.pitchpodcast.org.
