Our latest podcast tackles leading, following and jumping on the bandwagon. We’ll look into the bizarre world of viral web videos and hear from a group of New Yorkers trying to change the tide on how we think about, well, changing tides. We’ll also challenge the long-held wisdom that young voters are always the “hopey-changey” crowd in politics.

Greg Young of the Bowery Boys podcast joins us in the studio to share some strange fads from New York City’s past. We’ll round out things with a live performance from Salieu Suso, whose traditional kora music appears likely to outlast even the biggest Beyonce single.
