Episode Three is up, and it’s got all that sunshine that was stolen from you in 1999.
This week we have the hilarious writer (The Chris Gethard Show) and UCB Performer Dru Johnston, who gives us a taste of his trademark love for 80s and 90s jams, his morning Phil Collins routine and his high school filmmaker aspirations in an episode that’s all happy, no thinky.

Welcome, everyone! This is Hear Me Out, the podcast where Winston Noel and Alden Ford, along with a special guest each episode, explore the songs we love, no matter what literally everyone else says.
We are not music officials. We are not music critics or music snobs. We are unqualified on every level to provide any cogent analysis of why a song is good or bad. All we know is, there are songs we just can’t stop loving, even though the world passed its harsh judgment on them long ago. So every episode we sit down with one choice for each of us, along with our guest, and discuss the sublime highs and humiliating lows of these gentle pariahs of pop music. Join us, won’t you? And we know what you might be thinking about some of our choices. But just hear us out. We might win you over.
Or not. Some of these songs are genuinely terrible.
New episodes every Wednesday! Enjoy, share, and let us know what you think!
