In the first segment, Ryan and Dave discuss the latest Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros video. It was shot entirely on an iPhone and it came out great! This has huge implications for indie artists and for the videos they make. Our hosts also talk about NBC’s recent changes to its Songland contestant contract. Ryan and Dave talked about the problems with this contract a month ago and recent public pressure has led to changes in the language. But do those changes go far enough?
In the second segment, entertainment lawyer and friend of the show Erin M. Jacobson stops by to talk about recent developments in the Kesha/Dr. Luke litigation. How do recent rumors that Sony Music might be dropping Dr. Luke affect the parties in this case? What are the implications of this case for artists as a whole?

In the final segment, Ryan and Dave talk about the trailer for the upcoming movie Hardcore Henry. One of the hosts is excited for the movie. The other host hates it. They argue. It’s fun stuff.
