She Rates Dogs Podcast Review

Have you ever wished for a podcast like Call Her Daddy that talks about sexuality in an open and real way but without all of the Barstool drama? Then good news! She Rates Dogs is a new podcast fresh out of quarantine with only three episodes out so far and potential for success.

5-4

5-4 describes itself as a podcast about “how much the Supreme Court sucks.” It lives up to this description in its exploration of the many cases that have put politics before good-faith arguments. The podcast is a collaboration between three progressive lawyers who are tired of hearing about the almighty wisdom of the Supreme Court. Hosts Peter (@thelawboy on Twitter), Rhiannon, and Michael deliver a witty and intelligent look at the ways the Supreme Court fails to deliver decisions that respect the people affected by them.

Welcome to the Madhouse

We here at the paper have long been obsessed and confused with my co-editor Christian Decker’s love of metal music. He’s an ardent Catholic, THE definition of a softboy, and yet is the biggest fan of metal music I’ve ever met. So when Christian launched his own podcast over the summer, entitled “The Double Decker Metal Mayhem Horror Show” and found on Spotify and Anchor, there was no question whatsoever that I would listen to it, both to better understand my friend and a genre of music that is oft misunderstood.

A Playlist for Your Moods

Mental health is composed of three main categories; cognitive, behavioral, and emotional wellbeing according to Medical News Today. In regards to emotional wellbeing, it is important to remember all emotions are valid and worthy of being accepted and expressed in healthy ways. There are a variety of beneficial coping mechanisms for managing difficult emotions, one of which is listening to music.

Dancing to Boogie Shoes

Dancing is a cure-all for sadness. Whenever I’m feeling sad or alone, I blast the Saturday Night Fever album at full volume and dance like a maniac. The fervid movements of my limbs distract me for a short time from whatever it is that I’m anxious about at that moment. Out of all the songs on the album “Boogie Shoes” by KC and the Sunshine band is my favorite by far.

Blackwater Park, A Melancholy Masterpiece

Almost every time it’s rainy or dreary outside, my first instinct is to put on Blackwater Park, by Opeth. It’s hard to overstate how much of an impact that Opeth’s music has had on me both as a musician and a lover of music. It’s hard to separate any particular song on the album in a single or a separate entity, partly because all the songs are incredibly long, and also because of how they seamlessly flow together while still remaining with their distinct identities.

Review: Honeymoon by Beach Bunny

Do you have sex? Do you have emotions? Do you have emotions about sex? If the answer to any of those questions is yes then you should listen to Beach Bunny’s new album Honeymoon. The Chicago-based, indie rock outfit’s newest release continues with many of the themes that their previous songs have dealt with: insecurities, jealousy, and failed romances. Conveniently released around Valentine’s Day, many of these songs will make you doubt everything you have just said to the person you are into, and completely validate every emotion you have about doing so.
