Episode 15 Show Notes: Boy Band Extravaganza! and Song of Your Birth

Episode here.

For this episode, we took a much closer look at a subject that we’ve touched on a few times before: the animal known as the “Boy Band.” DISCLAIMER: We know that there’s no British boy band named “Take Five,” we really do. Let’s blame Robbie Williams or something. We also took a look at what song was topping the charts when we came in to the world.
