About this Episode

This is the episode only The Music Snobs could do. In this era of music streaming, corporate interests, and brand dominance, we take an uncomfortable look at the role of music journalism in the digital age. Guest-Snob and Vibe Magazine Editor-in-Chief, Datwon Thomas, joins us to ask some important questions. Is genuine music criticism still alive? Or are modern journalists too afraid to bite the hand that feeds them? The crew also finds time to present “All the Critics Love U”—a roundtable discussion that asks: what decision did a critic or awards show get stratospherically wrong?
