Popcast (Deluxe): ‘Barbie,’ Jason Aldean’s Culture War and Drake’s Tour


This week’s episode of Popcast (Deluxe), the weekly culture roundup show on YouTube hosted by Jon Caramanica and Joe Coscarelli, includes segments on:

  • Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie” film, starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, and the way in which even anti-corporate dissent has been fully absorbed into corporate branding

  • A conversation about the way the “Barbie” soundtrack uses contemporary pop stars, and its even more successful deployment of classic hits by Matchbox Twenty and the Indigo Girls

  • Drake’s current arena tour, his fan-like desire to enjoy Drake hits alongside his audience and his creative versatility, which includes U.K. rap and cringe comedy podcasts

  • The culture war push behind Jason Aldean’s “Try That in a Small Town,” which reached No. 2 on the Billboard singles chart after a week of controversy

  • The New York Times’ 50 Rappers, 50 Stories project and its inclusion of Violent J from Insane Clown Posse

  • New songs by Tanner Adell and Valee featuring Z Money

  • Snack of the week
