Mark And Sarah Talk About Songs

Mark Blankenship and Sarah D. Bunting talk about songs. 

Dec 14, 2017

MASTAS is doin' it for ourselves! And by "it," we mean "discussing a classic cut by Eurythmics and Annie Lennox." Diverging opinions on the song lead to lively chat about Aretha's eras, the good and bad of '80s pop, and the reason we need so many different kinds of feminist art. Plus, there are references to semiotics, Swann's Way, and coffee shops!


Our theme song is by Andrew Byrne, our outro is by that blue-eyed soulster Huey Lewis. If you want to join the fun, become a Patreon sponsor at to get bonus content and voting privileges in ranking episodes! Tweet us at @talksongs, Facebook us at, and email us at
