What better way to end the year and the decade than with a group of friends. So, for the final episode of 2019 and of the decade Day 1 Radio is sharing the space with freelance journalist Jewel Wicker (FADER, Teen Vogue Wall Street Journal, Atlanta Magazine), Jason Lee (BOSSIP) and DJ Wally Sparks (The Groove and Art, Beats & Lyrics). Together we talked about some of our favorite (and least favorite) shows, movies, albums and moments of the last ten years. Listen in to hear what made and didn’t make the lists.
5:00 – The crew starts off talking about some of their favorite television shows of the 2010s. Everybody seemed to like the same shows, but the discussion about the least favorites is when people showed how they really felt.
24:00 – A LOT of epic movies came out this decade but we attempt to talk about as many as possible. For the record, the crew agreed that Into the Spider-Verse was the best-animated movie ever. (Shameless plug: go back and listen to our episode with the movie’s star Shameik Moore). Not everybody had the same thing to say about Black Panther though. Branden also doubled down on his opinion of Moonlight not being that good.
35:00 – Music was all over the place this decade, so you can only imagine where this part of the conversation will go. Wally (the DJ in the discussion) kicks it off bluntly by saying most of it sucked. But the rest of us tried our best to convince him otherwise. He also shared his conspiracy theory of Chance the Rapper not really being an independent artist. Nobody seemed to like that last A Tribe Called Quest album either.
1:20:00 – The 2010s will probably go down as one of the most emotionally trying decades ever. Here the crew unpacks everything from the uptick in police killings, #MeToo, Trump being elected president and Kaepernick vs the pro football league. Jason also takes a moment to give a huge RIP shoutout to OG podcaster Reggie “Combat Jack” Osse.
1:28:00 – To close out the show we debate what recording artist ran the decade. Drake or Kendrick Lamar? Maurice puts a bid in for Future.
