The critically-acclaimed Spotify podcast Dissect is diving into one of 2021’s musical phenomenons: Bo Burnham: Inside.
The seven-episode mini-series will take a deeper look at both the musical and visual aspects of the comedy special that encapsulated what life was like living through 2020. Host Cole Cuchna will delve into just what made audiences resonate so deeply with Burnham’s award-winning special, his first since 2016.
“Cole traces the life and trajectory of the artist — and of course, the historical impact. Breaking down our beloved hip-hop masterpieces, Cole makes leaps of interpretative wonder, fusing insights, music theory, instrumentation, and lyric interpretation to social contextual analysis; empowering fans to build deeper connections with the artist as well as the music and visual elements of each album he analyzes.”
