Do you enjoy debating the font sizes of artists on music festival lineups? Or better yet — ever make a fake Coachella lineup filled with emo bands? Introducing #AlternativeFacts, your new favorite podcast.
Billboard is ramping up its podcast network to cover all corners of the music industry and #AlternativeFacts is your new source for weekly insider coverage of alternative rock, indie, punk, emo, metal, weird electronic music… you get the idea. Or maybe you don’t, but that’s fine — just more reason to tune in!
Billboard staff writer Chris Payne will be hosting the weekly show, along with regular guest appearances from other Billboard staffers, outside music writers and of course, musicians themselves. Think of it as an inside look at Billboard’s New York office — which also features great sites like Spin and Stereogum — complete with all the debates, chart talk, witty banter and baseless, ridiculous banter that comes from a bunch of music-obsessed humans.
So, when’s the first episode? Mark your calendars for April 20 and, better yet, click here to subscribe to #AlternativeFacts and rate the show. For now, listen to the teaser episode above to get a taste of what to expect on #Alternative Facts. The new podcast will post every Thursday on Billboard.com and iTunes.
