Podcasts For Moderns / Episode .003 {PODCAST/MIXTAPE}

Yep, I’m back again folks but this time I’ve come armed with a bunch of ladies singin’ and playin’ tunes. There isn’t nearly as much of a gap between male dominance and female obscurity as in years past but it still exists on some levels. But really, the main impetus behind the theme was an abundance of lady tunes in my giant for-future-mixtapes-and-podcasts folder - so I rallied up a quality batch. If you choose to listen to the podcast you’ll notice I sound a little beat up - I’m still recovering from last weekend’s bachelor party. That’s right ladies, 2 more months until I take up arms with the girl of my dreams.
