We're back from our summer break to bring you a special show all about the seminal funk-punk dance band, ESG. Join us on this immersive musical journey through New York City exploring the 70's, 80's and beyond, following ESG and their unique sound and story. Starting in the South Bronx, sisters, Valerie, Renee, Deborah, and Marie Scroggins formed ESG with Tito Libran in the late 70's. They went on to perform across the world and record dozens of records influencing artists in all genres, with their music being sampled over 500 times. The band's body of work is rooted in New York City's electric music scene, which spans Latin groove, hip-hop, rock, funk and more. In conversation with Chrystal Genesis, the band's lead vocalist, guitarist and co-founder Renee Scroggins, shares her perspective on ESG's origins, era-defining sound, and future. We find out more about the band's new documentary “Are You Serious?”, new album and plans for their farewell tour. Stance hears from Carol Cooper, a journalist, professor and cultural critic, who was there to document ESG hitting New York City's vibrant music scene for the first time. They both discuss the city's booming creativity and crumbling economy, as well as what made 70-80's NYC so unique.

We followed Sylvia to the met's production of don Giovanni like two little puppy dogs to get an inside look at the critic's PROCESS: what are they thinking about when they sit down to watch a production they plan on reviewing? Do they take notes? Should a reviewer lean into The Dunk, or resist it with all their might? Are we all addicted to the dunk, or can we stomach sincerity and nuance? Should we ask that woman who had an org*sm at Tchaik V to come on the pod???

X-Men Origins: Wolverine was meant to slash open a whole new avenue for the X-Men movie franchise. Yet, despite its commercial performance, the tepid reception ultimately led the series to take another approach: going back to basics with a fresh start on the whole mutant saga. In hindsight, it might seem like 2011's X-Men: First Class was always meant to be a prequel to the previous films. But director Matthew Vaughn described it as a reboot of the franchise. So which is it? And ultimately, does it even matter when the resulting superhero adventure is that much fun? Kevin the Critic joins Franchise Detours as we head back to school for an in-depth chat about X-Men: First Class. We'll discuss the chemistry between James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, how the story quietly retcons the series, and whether Vaughn deserves another crack at the Marvel mutants.
