elcome to Ask the JamFam, where we ask expert culture writers, seasoned couch-sitters, and members of the JamFam the most pressing chilling-adjacent questions on our mind. Today, our writers are hitting you with their go-to Spotify playlists.
Vikram Murthi: I don't usually use the playlists on Spotify, but the "This is Drag City" one is pretty cool.
Brianna Holt: Rap Caviar
Alphonse Pierre: Most Necessary
Larry Fitzmaurice: The playlists that I make for myself
Dayna Evans: I'm not much of a playlist girl, on account of hating the algorithm.
Corban Goble: Rap Caviar, Indigo or Pollen (if it's not too sleepy)
Joanna Rothkopf: Feelin' Myself... sexy music to do squats to
Otis Blum: Indie Pop 2010s
Hunter Harris: Don't ask me how I found this but: "RY RY'S TOOT TOOT BEEP BEEP PLAYLIST." It's a great collection of disco from Donna Summer, Cher, Diana Ross, Rick James, etc.
Paul Hinkes: I have a playlist I've built with a friend called "the Blue-Jean Committee" (a la the Documentary Now! episode). It's the perfect intersection of Yacht Rock and Soft Rock: a medium-low heat for a Saturday afternoon.
