About This Show
Show Info: The mashup video that broke the internet, the GIF that went around the world in a minute, the parody Twitter account with a million followers – that’s the frontier of culture today. On Sideshow, Sean Rameswaram talks with the people who make the memes: from Pogo, one of the biggest musicians on YouTube, to Beastie Boy Mike D, who reveals what’s really in a Brass Monkey. You’ll hear from a hairdresser who delivers the best Game of Thrones recap going, a scriptwriter who packs his movies into a single tweet, and a gallerist who’s all about Ghostbusters fan art. Sideshow is a bi-weekly podcast from PRI’s SoundWorks and Studio 360. New cultural finds served up every day at studio360.org/sideshow.
