THE BIAS LIST meets IDOL CAST: For Your Listening Pleasure!

I said I’d never do a podcast. I’ve turned down offers before, not out of some sense of inflated importance but because the very thought of it gave me anxiety. I’m much more comfortable behind the keyboard. But, it’s important to stretch outside your comfort zone, right?

Well, Filmigirl from Idol Cast (a personal fave of mine) finally lured me out with the promise of a fun chat about J-pop and Johnny’s – two topics rarely discussed in English-language media.

So, if you’re interested in hearing our thoughts regarding the differences between K-pop and J-pop, the appeal of Johnny’s Entertainment, and the general awesomeness of pop music, take a listen. And when you’re done, make sure to subscribe to her podcast and listen from the beginning. She does a great overview of the history of J-pop and K-pop on her first few episodes.

Plus, we each selected five tracks to discuss in detail. If you’ve been a longtime Bias List reader, you’re likely to recognize most of mine!

  1. I have been a reader of your blog for almost 2 months, and I have to say that I’m really excited to listen to this podcast. Thanks for stepping out of your comfort zone, and thanks for the reviews you do. I love reading your blog entries and learning more about music. I used to listen to J-pop in my teens, and now at 29 I’m finally coming back around to listen to it again. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the genre.

    Also I’m really enjoying reading your top 100 kpop songs. Thanks to you I’ve listened to Crooked again, found more B1A4 songs to love, found even more reasons to love SHINee’s Sherlock, and discovered that I really like Infinite’s The Chaser.
