Slate Culture Gabfest: “Summer Strut 2021” Edition

Slate Culture Gabfest on the songs of the summer.

This week, Steve and Dana are joined by Hit Parade host Chris Molanphy for our annual Summer Strut episode. First, they discuss this year’s song of the summer and how one particularly passionate fan base gained control of the charts. Then, the panel announces their favorite song picks from the mammoth playlist of listener suggestions and explain why they love them.

In Slate Plus, the panel does a couple additional rounds of strut picks.
