episode 8: One Direction Spectacular

In episode 8, hosts Key (he/they) and Gray (he/him) attempt to accomplish a difficult task: a full exploration of Harry’s time in a little band called One Direction. Listeners may want to grab some snacks and settle in, because there’s a lot to cover!

First, Key and Gray start out the show by explaining why they wanted to talk about One Direction in the first place, giving a brief history of the band (3:54), and getting into their own personal 1D origin stories (6:15).

They then get into the main subject of the episode: a full critique of One Direction’s discography! They start with their overall thoughts and criticisms of 1D’s music (19:19), and then review each of the One Direction albums (Up All Night: 36:30, Take Me Home: 42:44, Midnight Memories: 49:54, Four: 56:59, Made in the AM: 1:02:33).

Next they mix it up with a 1D music video speed round (1:11:34) seeing how many piping hot takes they can drop in 15 second increments (listeners should be warned of a take involving a certain Strip That Down singer in the discussion of the Best Song Ever video, lest they be unprepared and, listening while driving, accidentally swerve off the road).

Then Key and Gray calm down and discuss the songs that Harry wrote for One Direction (1:31:38) as well as Harry’s current relationship to the band (1:56:45), featuring the ever so controversial topic of a potential 1D reunion.

Finally, they close out the show by chatting about non-Harry things that have brought them joy over the week (2:10:55).
