In this episode, I speak with Alexandra Apolloni about how much the music industry sucks for women. Really, that could be a depressing subtheme of this entire podcast, but despite our depressing theme, this is a fantastic episode. Alexandra (Or Xandra, if you will) first introduces us to her awesome research on British "girl" singers of the 1960s (you know, same era, different side of the pond as the Girl Groups of the US). I finally learned more about Lulu than To Sir, with Love! And then we spring into intersectionality and Miley Cyrus (yes, really). Next, we move into "The Music Industry Sucks for Women," in which we discuss the recent spate of biopics (on Nina Simone and Amy Winehouse) that reveal the truth in that statement. And finally, on a bright note: In the Fandom Five, we gush effusively about the B-52s and Xandra tells us about her love for PP Arnold.
