Lawrence Burney is joined by two music and cultural journalists to talk current events and musical topics.

With the 24-hour news cycle, there’s a dizzying influx of information constantly flowing through the pipeline. On this week’s episode, Lawrence Burney will host a conversation with writers Lakin Starling and Ivie E Ani to discuss and distill the latest updates. This might include Kodak Black’s recent harassment of Young M.A and its implications, or how to analyze R. Kelly’s recent interview with Gayle King. Lakin Starling is a freelance writer whose words have graced the pages of FADER, HuffPost, Dazed and Esquire. Ivie E Ani is a culture journalist and the music editor at Okayplayer. She has written for The New Yorker, Complex, New York, Village Voice and more. We’ll also get into current artists our guests are excited about and what songs are resonating with them.
