  1. Hey Paul,

    This is a really interesting take to the DA, I very much agree with you, music is extremely relevant to time and history which you can see through the way we can classify music by their decade e.g. 70’s music etc. I’m curious about if you will be focusing on a certain genre/s or all music because especially in our current era there are so many different styles of music! If you were to focus on one or two genres e.g. rap and/or techno, I believe you’ll be able to track the progression over time!

    Looking at rap in particular would be really interesting as it very much developed from the struggles faced by African-Americans at the time and into our current day. Rap has also changed throughout the past few decades and the sub-genre of mumble rap of today has form which could be a really interesting aspect to look at! I found this time line of the evolution of rap and hiphop which could be useful if you decide to go down this path; https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/consumer-groups-rate-fast-food-chains-their-use-beef-produced-n1073836

    I look forward to seeing where you believe music will progress to in the future, I definitely foresee a lot more techno based music which could be really interesting to explore, would this mean an even bigger rave culture?

    I’m also curious to if you are continuing with a guest or if because of COVID-19 you have had to can that part of the DA!

    Cant wait for the podcasts to see what direction you head in!!
