Season 3 Episode 4! David Bowie: Discussing the Interstellar Discography From the Ziggy Stardust Era to His Final Goodbye Blackstar

This week, Adrienne and Katarina tackle the discography of the real Starman waiting in the sky: David Bowie. Bowie’s legacy is one of fascinating experimentation, breaking boundaries, and a testament to the power of presentation. From an astronaut stranded in space, to an androgynous bisexual alien from Mars, to a dystopian future a la 1984 and beyond, Bowie’s music and storytelling abilities have transported fans into an alien mindset, acting as an outsider looking in, and in doing so revealed to listeners what being human truly meant. Buckle up, listeners: it’s gonna be quite the intergalactic ride.
