In celebration of our new course, The Music of Boy Bands, we dedicated an entire episode of the podcast to some of music history’s favorite heartthrobs. After all, despite the inarguable commercial success of groups like *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys, boy band music has rarely been given the academic and analytical attention we feel it deserves.

In addition to Mahea Lee (Carter's frequent co-host and the guiding voice of The Music of Boy Bands), he was joined by estimable producer, composer, and fellow bassist, Martin Fowler — returning to the show for the first time since he appeared in our inaugural episode.

Themes and Variation is presented by Soundfly, a music education website changing the way we build our creative skills.
