Ever wonder how the raw emotions of teen angst translate into the music that defines a generation? Award-winning journalist Jewel Wicker joins us to unravel the magic behind the teen heartbreak anthems of Olivia Rodrigo. We take you on a journey through Rodrigo’s rise from Disney darling to the voice of youth heartache, examining her growth as an artist and the visceral responses her songs like “vampire” elicit.

Prepare to get nostalgic as we swap tales of our own youthful romances and the quintessential drama that came with them. From the charm bracelets and dried roses of past flings to the questionable partner choices that still make us cringe, we explore how these experiences influence our musical tastes today. And yes, we even get into a playful debate, pitting the musical prowess of pop sensations Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift, and Billie Eilish against one another. Who will be the ‘drop’ in our lineup? Tune in to find out.
