PASTE used to be a print publication—they notably featured local singer-songwriter Gileah Taylor on one of their sampler CDs about a decade ago—but now exist solely in the digital universe. And they flood my inbox with about a dozen emails every day.
The PASTE Podcast is blessedly short—about half an hour and change—and I enjoyed the first episode of the year. PASTE’s editor and TV correspondent rave about Schitt’s Creek, the Eugene Levy-Catherine O’Hara comedy series that finally found a huge audience on Netflix, and now I feel compelled to catch up.
Elsewhere, two youngish gals gush about 2020’s upcoming music releases—they’re of the Fiona Apple-P.T. Anderson-Strokes can do no wrong stripe, but their enthusiasm comes off as genuine. The podcast closes with a live in-studio performance by the band American Authors, whose new tunes are pretty good.
