Switched on Pop

Hosted by Nate Sloan, a music professor at Fordham University, and musician and songwriter Charlie Harding, Switched on Pop is a podcast dedicated to "the making and meaning of popular music." Each episode of this podcast is dedicated to a single contemporary song and, occasionally, a pop song from yesterday. To do so, they often invite a guest musician on the show to discuss the song's lyrics, musical characteristics, and influences. Although each episode is singled on one particular song, Sloan, Harding, and guests usually end up discussing a number of songs in the podcast. On this website, listeners will find a list of discussed songs listed alongside each episode. Recent episodes of Switched on Pop have featured discussions of "After the Storm" by Kali Uchis, Tyler the Creator, and Bootsy Collins; "HUMBLE" by Kendrick Lamar; and "I Get Around" by the Beach Boys
