Queens Of Pop And Vampire Slayers

So much for songs of the summer! How is it September ALREADY?

At the top, we talk music news with two Certified Music People™: NPR’s Jasmine Garsd and Vocalo’s Jill Hopkins. We take the temperature on outdoor festivals, Kanye West’s Donda, and Lizzo’s tweets crowning pop royalty.

We also check in with everyone’s favorite familiar-slash-vampire slayer: actor Harvey Guillén, who plays Guillermo de la Cruz in What We Do in the Shadows.

Then, could we see an end to gender designations on birth certificates? We tapped Dr. Aron Janssen of Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago to talk us through an American Medical Association report recommending we do just that.
