The You Do You Show #23 Zing Tsjeng: on X-Men, noughties emo, and Dua Lipa's 'New Rules'
Helloooo, come on in, take off your shoes and settle down for another episode of The You Do You Show, a weekly interview podcast in which I chat with a guest I admire about the ways in which pop culture has influenced who they are and what they do.
My guest this week is Zing Tsjeng, UK Editor of Broadly and author of Forgotten Women, a four-part series covering the lost histories of influential artists, leaders, scientists and writers. I visited her at the Vice offices and we ended up talking about her early love of X-men, the poignancy of an overwrought emo-anthem to naval-gazing noughties teens everywhere, and the striking ability of our fave Dua Lipa to simplify complex themes into culturally incisive pop songs.
Listen to Zing Tsjeng chat about pop culture, growing up and the concept of cool on The You Do You Show via your favourite podcast provider.
