Episode 346: Are You Gonna Go My Way - Lenny Kravitz [Discologist]

In 1993 Lenny Kravitz was a star to some, and a point of confusion to many more. But none of that kept him from creating his future-forward masterpiece that plays as hot today as it did twenty-five years ago.

Timothy Anne Burnside (NMAAHC) and Marcus K. Dowling (Medium) join Kevin in the basement to dig into this timeless LP, and get to the heart of why Kravitz was - and probably still is - misunderstood as an artist, the legacy of his music, and how making art that comes directly from the heart and soul is always gonna win. Always, every time.

Episode 320: Rhythm Nation 1814 - Janet Jackson [Discologist]

With Control, Janet Jackson became a household name, but it wasn't until her 1989 album Rhythm Nation 1814 that she ascended to the status of music legend. 

Buttressed by pop hits and jam-packed with hooks set loose from some future utopia, Nation was a not-so-subtle exploration of racism, sexism, love, and social responsibility that sought to elevate our humanity by any means necessary. More importantly, it's an album who's messages sadly may be MORE relevant almost thirty years later.

Join Kevin, Marcus K. Dowling, and Timothy Anne Burnside (National Museum of African American History and Culture) as they consider this landmark achievement in music.

Episode 311: Wildflowers - Tom Petty [Discologist]

David Bowie was from Mars. Prince was from another universe. But Tom Petty? Tom Petty was one of us. And now he's gone.

Joining us in the basement to celebrate this legend's passing are our good friends Marcus K. Dowling (Decades, Capitol Wrestling), the National Museum of African American History and Culture's  Timothy Anne Burnside, and...Timothy's Mom.

It's a bittersweet episode of ChunkyGlasses: The Podcast as we eulogize one of the greatest storytellers of the modern era by celebrating Wildflowers, Tom Petty's career-defining "solo" album that isn't just one of the best of his career, but one of the best LP's of all-time.
