Of Music and Men is a story, so it's best to start listening at episode one. This is a recap episode for episode two during our brief hiatus.
This is part two of the recap episode for the series of podcast episodes that make up Nothing But a Number. So, in case you forgot, episode two is called Nothing but a number--that is, the collection of seven episodes of the podcast that make up episode two. You know how this works. Here, I’ll give you the recap of the story--without the cold openings--so you can get a full sense of where things will be when we pick back up.
In When do you start, which is episode 2.4, Kenya has to nurse a sick Lucas while trying to get him to actually take an active part in something important for his own career, and Tk, still thinking about the possibility of being an old rapping-teacher, tries to quit her job but is denied by the principle.
In The Great Compromise, Kenya goes out with the older guy to a Balkin Beat Box concert and later realizes that she’s actually more of kid than she realized. J goes to a college party and finds herself in a compromising situation with her young friend.
In Of Age yet? The party J’s at gets crashed by the police and her age save her from further embarrassment, Kenya helps Lucas get better but refuses to do anything more for this grown child, and Ty gets a surprise of her own when she finds out who her secret admirer is.
Kenya realizes that she’s still in the process of becoming a grownup as she makes a decision about her retaining wall, Tk realizes that she has to go all in with music or she’ll regret it, and Kenya finally meets her father’s new love interest--someone much younger.
You can find links to all of the artists featured here in your show notes. I actually recommend going back and listening to the full episodes of the podcast which includes the cold open segment. They give you a timely, sometimes even philosophical viewpoint to help introduce the theme of the episode.
