Back for his second episode. Slate magazine's resident rock critic & chart analyst Chris Molanphy chats with me about the definition of a "Smash", why the demographics of the artists on the charts have changed over time, and how much he hates most Diane Warren penned songs. Always great to talk to Chris.

I'm very pleased to have the host of Slate's Hit Parade podcast, Chris Molanphy in the chair today. Chart analyst and pop critic, Chris sees connections and parallels along the history of popular music that would make a mere mortal music fan say 'Uncle!', and that's why we love him. Buckle up for a 100 minute trip up and down the Hot 100.
