This week, Kate discusses a topic adjacent to her newly released book cover: early 2000s burned CDs, where a generation of baby pirates took on the music industry with a stack of CD-Rs, a sharpie, and a dream. She goes through some brief history of peer-to-peer sharing sites, talks through the millennial version of ‘walking miles in the snow’ aka buffering, discusses changing her entire personality to impress boys via music, then reads some listener anecdotes about their favorite memories, soundtracks, song orders, and themes resulting from this period of time where teens casually committed a federal crime in the name of curating a vibe. Enjoy!
