This Year In ‘North Mollywood’

The weekly altered-reality pop-culture recap that you didn’t know you needed

We didn’t see this year coming, but we heard it from all sides. In Signal & Noise 2016, you’ll find the way we made sense out of all of that sound.

“North Mollywood” is the weekly altered-reality pop-culture recap that you didn’t know you needed. Hosts Alex Pappademas and Molly Lambert love the ’90s, outer space, and underwater sea creatures. They dislike most new technology, can agree to disagree on anything medieval, and they may or may not be stoked about nü-metal. “North Mollywood” is about all of these things, and weird AF. Listen?
