The First Time I Heard...
- •SerialTrying to escape the Glendale Americana parking structure and contemplating Sarah Koenig's opening questions about memory. Immediately fascinating.
- •Jason MrazHeard The Remedy on the radio in 2002 and knew I had to find this album. I'd heard them say "Mraz" but couldn't figure out how to spell that. I wandered up to the cashier at the Barnes & Noble muttering the word and she presented me with the CD.
- •Guys We Fucked: The Anti-Slut-Shaming PodcastI had seen an article about this podcast (I think in the Daily Beast?) and decided to check it out. I was a dozen episodes behind, but I started from the beginning. I was angry about a boy and driving down Highland as Corinne discussed a guy asking her to get off his dick mid-sex and I was sold. Been listening every week since for over two years.
- •Christina Aguilera's Ain't No Other ManI was sitting at my desk, listening to the radio, studying for my sophomore finals, when I heard this song, which was unlike anything I'd ever heard before.
