What is the sound of hip-hop apathy? It might just be the theme song for "Any Given Sunday"! We're talking about how Jamie Foxx, Common, and Guru ever got into this mess, not to mention our varying levels of enthusiasm for football metaphors in song. Oh, and the Super Bowl Shuffle gets in there, too!
David Gregory Byrne delivers our theme song, and Notorious B.I.G. handles the outro.

Stacy's mom. Thinks MASTAS is the bo-omb. ...While we talk about that hit by Fountains Of Wayne (plus their lesser-known cut "Red Dragon Tattoo"), we also get real about ironic pop songs, female characters who deserve justice, and that time Mark thought he was smarter than G.B. Shaw.
This week's theme is by Andrew Byrne, and the outro is by Ivy, which will make particular sense once you've heard the episode.

We're grappling with the mad genius of Kanye West and his towering single "Jesus Walks." Along the way, we touch on Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse, and the ability to separate artists' tragedies from their work. Oh, and ass. We also talk about ass.

Sarah goes solo in this Single -- but not entirely, as you listeners helped decide which vintage Eagles track had "Lyin' Eyes" and which should be "Already Gone." (Your votes did nothing to improve Sarah's puns, however.) See how these classics stacked up!
