This week we are having a blast feeling really sad. Guest Brittany Luse, cohost of the acclaimed podcast For Colored Nerds, joins Nate and Charlie to dig into this fall's slate of breathtaking breakup albums from Adele, Kacey Musgraves, Summer Walker, and Mitski.
Some have been calling this confluence of releases, "sad girl autumn," but the melancholy moment goes beyond gender, with even Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak's leaning into the lachrymose on their album An Evening With Silk Sonic.
On top of all this, Taylor Swift has stormed the charts with her re-recording of her hit album Red and the ten-minute version of fan-favorite breakup song "All Too Well."
We take the opportunity to mine this gold rush of emotions and diagnose every type of heartbreak on the radio dial.
Taylor Swift - All Too Well (Taylor's Version)
Summer Walker - Throw it Away
Silk Sonic - Put On a Smile
Adele - Easy On Me
Mitski - The Only Heartbreaker
Kacey Musgraves - Justified
