Clips of songs are played as songs are dissected. He does seem to focus a little to much on albums that fit to perfectly with his view of sjw issues which I don't mind terribly I just wish he'd have more artist variety and not revisit them.

This podcast may have have some good discussions and insights on songs, but they don't play clips from the songs which I was expecting them to do so. I find that to be very disappointing
