They discuss the mechanics of the boy band BTS's big break. They even chat about TikTok and its influence on the music industry. The topic centers on one thing—the music industry as a business.
The hosts bring in their own expertise and often invite special guests to share theirs, too. This creates a fast-paced and informative dynamic.
