The Eras Podcast

Each episode of our podcast will look at an Era in pop music from the perspective of a music industry professional (that’s Nic) and a pop music stan (that’s Duncan). We dive deep into single choice, rollout, PR and marketing choices, production, subject matter, performances, has the music stood the test of time and more - before giving the Era a rating out of 10. In Season 1 we’ll look at ”1989” by Taylor Swift, ”Teenage Dream” by Katy Perry and all the other main pop girlies. We hope you enjoy hearing our point of view!

Dangerous Woman is Ariana Grande's most pop-leaning album - often overlooked as a fan favourite record in her discography (most Arianators go straight for Sweetener). Plagued by issues with management, and the infamous first-single-fake-out that was 'Focus', see what we think of the AG3 era.

Episode 3: ANTI by Rihanna

ANTI had one of the most unusual rollouts in pop music history - the album sold 1.4 million copies in its first week but only debuted at #27. HOW!? Find out on this week's episode!

We do a quick wrap up of the historic first week sales of "1989 (Taylor's Version)" - and what we think is next for Taylor Swift.

Critics did not review Teenage Dream so favourably upon its release - see if you can guess which Teenage Dream single belongs to each scathing critic quote.

For episode 2, we take a trip back to 2010 and look at what is probably our favourite album of all time - Teenage Dream by Katy Perry. Katy's achievements in this era re-wrote pop music history when she managed to score five #1 singles from a singular record - something only Michael Jackson had been able to achieve up until that point.
The Teenage Dream era - including the deluxe edition "The Complete Confection" - spanned 2.5 years and gave us all front row seats to the rise and fall of Katy's marriage to Russell Brand. She may not have won any Grammys - but will she get a perfect 10 from The Eras Podcast?

For our premiere episode, we break down one of the most iconic Eras in pop music history - 1989 by Taylor Swift. This epic Era lasted over two years from the Yahoo! Live Steam where Taylor revealed she was departing Country music, to the moment Kim Kardashian leaked video footage of the infamous Kanye West phone conversation (and Taylor went into hiding for 1.5 years!) - will we give 1989 a perfect 10?
