Polarity by Max Bemis

Melissa Brinks published on

Welcome to episode 78, in which we discuss Polarity by Max Bemis, the lyricist and vocalist for Say Anything, one of the major bands of our adolescence. We're talking about catharsis, about audience, and about hypocrisy, because Polarity is a lot to digest while simultaneously being very little.

To get right to the Polarity talk, skip to 00:27:00.

Warnings: This episode is uncensored, but we only decided that midway through. There are also some frank discussions of mental health concerns, if that's a distressing area for you.
