One of the most iconic artists (at least Annie would say so) recently dropped a song that makes us feel POWERFUL. Today, we bring you an episode all about King by Florence + The Machine. We also fangirl about Julia Nunes listening to our last episode and our upcoming concerts! But really, this ep is all about how women should be able to have it all. Catch us using "I am no mother, I am no bride, I am king" in every conversation.
From "Who Let The Dogs Out?" to "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?", all sorts of songs ask questions. Hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot are joined by production staff to share their favorite question songs. Plus Jim and Greg review new albums by Kendrick Lamar and Florence + The Machine.

Across five studio albums, Florence and the Machine has explored genres from pop to punk and soul; the band’s most recent record, “Dance Fever,” just came out. Florence Welch, the group’s singer and main songwriter, is by turns introspective and theatrical, poetic and confessional. She sat down with John Seabrook at The New Yorker Festival in 2019 to reflect on her band’s rapid rise to stardom. She also spoke about her turn toward sobriety after years of heavy drinking. “The first year that I stopped, I felt like I’d really lost a big part of who I was and how I understood myself,” she says. “What I understood is that that was rock and roll, and, if you couldn’t go the hardest, you were letting rock and roll down.” But eventually getting sober let her connect more deeply with fans and with the music. “To be conscious and to be present and to really feel what’s going on—even though it’s painful, it feels like much more a truly reborn spirit of rock and roll,” she says.

From the celestial rapture of "Cosmic Love" to the vigorous uproar of "Kiss With a Fist", the trio share their elemental experiences of the album and examine why us queer folks are so attracted to the esoteric.Light a candle, drape yourself in chiffon and get ready to howl at the night sky because, bitch, the dog days ain’t over.

CBS News' Anthony Mason interviews Florence + the Machine frontwoman Florence Welch in London about writing her latest album, "Dance Fever," during the pandemic. Welch told friends she would stop making music after her last tour – but she tells Mason her creativity is a compulsion, and when inspiration strikes she can't help but see it through.
