Well somehow, someway, by the grace of the musical gods we've made it into our fifth season as a podcast. Well let me back up for a second, we've made it to the end of our fourth season, and if you guys keep listening and supporting, we'll be back for season five in just a few weeks.
It's that time of the year again where Kyle and Michelle not only battle one another over their Spotify listening stats, but they also battle against Spotify (or the "robots" as they call them) over the legitimacy of their own year-end listening statistics.
If you're not familiar with what I am talking about because you don't use Spotify as a streaming service, let me explain real quick. At the end of each year, Spotify provides each of its users with a chunk of their streaming data. Presented in a neat and clever little package that they've titled "Wrapped". I don't know if they do this to pretend like they're only using your data for this purpose, or for the fun of it. Either way, it can be quite interesting when you look at what you've been listening to all broken down into numbers.
When all is said and done you may or may not agree with how companies use your data, but I think you might be lying if you have Spotify and haven't checked out your "Wrapped" over the years. If you're a long-time listener, you may recall last year when Kyle lost his mind because Michelle had higher numbers than he did. If you haven't listened to this, it's not only hilarious and an absolute must listen but pretty much the reason why we started going over our stats at the end of the season.
Whether you trust the robots to tell you what you've been up to, or like Kyle and Michelle you're extremely skeptical about what they have to say, you're not going to want to miss us digging into this once again. It's the season 4 finale of Daniel Ek's personal Chef's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!!!
