Selena Gomez - Lose You to Love Me
Play • 19 min

Selena Gomez is a singer, songwriter, and actress, who’s spent most of her life in the public eye. She started her acting career as a child, and put out her first albums as a teenager. She’s had three number one albums and eight Top 10 hits, and in 2017, Billboard named her Woman of the Year. At one point, she was the most followed person on Instagram, and the details of her life are constantly discussed in tabloid headlines.

So, when your private life is that public, how do you write a song about something as personal as heartbreak? Selena teamed up with the Grammy-winning production duo Mattman & Robin, who she’d worked with before. And she turned to her longtime songwriting collaborators, Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter. Julia Michaels is also a Grammy-nominated artist in her own right, and Justin Tranter, also a Grammy nominee, was named BMI’s 2017 Pop Songwriter of the Year. The three of them have written 10 songs together, including this one, “Lose You to Love Me.” The song came out in October 2019, and went on to become Selena’s first number-one hit. It went double-platinum in the US, and was named one of the best songs of the year by Vulture and Billboard. In this episode, Selena, Julia and Justin break down how the song came to be, from the first writing session to the final production touches from Finneas.

MP S03.E10: And Justice For None
It's finally time for the custody hearing in which Jo will face off against the Carters. Apparently Jo's lawyer has just trusted that the character witnesses she's rounded up from the complex will be forceful and effective as opposed to the bunch of dimwitted tramps we know them to be, and puts them on the stand without, as far as we can tell, any kind of preparation or screening. So things already aren't going tremendously well even before Alison gets way too drunk the night before her testimony and messes up Jo's lawyer's big finish (which...somehow was not Jo herself? Seriously, this guy just may not know what he's doing). The reason Alison's out partying too much and ignoring her responsibilities is that she's picked up a drinking buddy -- Zack Phillips (Brian Bloom!), a cool record company executive. He's such a great distraction from her angst over Susan and Billy that he alsodistracts her from the power plays Amanda is running at the agency following Bruce's incapacitation from a sudden health crisis. Jeffrey and Matt continue figuring out how their relationship is going to work now, and Jane continues notfiguring out that Chris is obviously shady in the extreme. Order!

Erin and Melody
Ep. 172 - After We Fall by Melanie Harlow (RERELEASE)
Hey HB's! This week we read After We Fall by Melanie Harlow. It's a contemporary novel with a soul-searching, rich girl heroine and an emotionally isolated widower who's still navigating symptoms of PTSD. There's a farm. There are attempts at chores. There are accidental meetings. There are dubious decisions outdoors. There's some peeping. There's some excellent dirty talk. And TREE SEX. Oh yes. Bonus Content: Erin is SO SICK! Rooster's probable Telegram Company. The Alaskan State Fair. Our thoughts on dudes with pastel whale shorts, boat shoes, and a disgusting sense of entitlement. A discussion of how to be a friend. What are eggs? IS THAT A GOAT? Totally hypothetical advice about sex against a tree. And how Melody might employ gymnastics to coat your car in all sorts of nonsense if you don't offer her the bathroom after sex. Self-Love Recommendations: Erin: Consider taking the leash off. Erin was too scared to let Rooster off the leash for years and this weekend she proved herself to be an ecstatic off-road adventure dog! Your loved ones could surprise you. Melody: Make sure you're registered to vote! We've got some important upcoming elections whether local, state, and national elections. Your voice matters! Subscribe! Rate! Review!

How to Sell Art Online [104]
This week, we answer a listener question from Maxine, who asked about the best ways to sell art online. This is a huge topic and perhaps a little ambitious for a one-hour episode, but we decided to give it our best shot! In a wide-ranging discussion, we discuss the importance of a website and email list as a "home base" for your marketing, so that no matter where people find you, they can sign up to stay in touch. But we also cover other options and ways to get started if you don't yet have a website, including social media, licensing opportunities and third party websites such as Saatchi Art.  And we stress that even when you do have a website, it's not enough to just set it up and then wait for people to arrive. You will always need to drive traffic to your site and finding ways to do this is an important element of your marketing strategy.

Ronan McKenzie and Joy Yamusangie (Recorded at HOME by RM)
Russell & Robert meet artists Ronan McKenzie and Joy Yamusangie at new multifunctional creative space HOME, on Hornsey Road, North London. We explore their current joint-exhibition 'WATA, Further Explorations'. Taking root in Mckenzie and Yamusangie’s first formal collaboration, a short film of the same name (produced at the beginning of 2020), 'WATA' weaves together considerations of ancestry, cross cultural connections, music and migration. To watch 'WATA' online during lockdown, and to learn more about this extraordinary new centre for art, please visit: https://www.homebyrm.space/ Ronan Mckenzie is a London-based photographer, curator, and the publisher of HARD EARS. Her photography focuses on themes that unearth hidden beauty and cultural imagery. Visit Ronan at: https://www.ronanmckenzie.co.uk/ J Yamusangie is a mixed media artist working across illustration, printmaking, typography, poetry, ceramics, collage and painting, all with a central theme of autobiography. Visit Joy at: https://joyyamusangie.com/ Born out of the necessity to be seen and heard, HOME presents a considered curation of exhibitions from leading and exciting artists. Their lounge and co-workspace stimulate through a library of literature and arts, setting the scene for our events programme which aims always to connect and inspire. Being a modern hybrid of an art gallery and a community events space, at the heart of HOME is the aim to inspire, share and support. HOME takes ownership over cultivating our community and creating space for us to be, with a library and creative work space to be shared and enjoyed. HOME is one of very few black owned art spaces within London, and one of the only to be artist led, with a leading focus on supporting Black and Indigenous People of Colour. HOME responds directly to the personal and communal need for a more honest and representative space, that cares deeply for the artists we present and the community of people that we welcome in to our space. HOME offers a considered curatorial and events programme which highlights our founding concept; to truly contextualise artists, and continually transform to support the community we are built for.

Brave Listener Gets Hard Edits
We asked you, our listeners, to send in your unfinished essays. We didn’t mean first drafts. We meant those essays you’ve been working on forever that you can’t get to the bottom of. Today on our show, we bring you an unfinished essay by listener Julie Schoelzel, a writer from Keene, New Hampshire. We hope to offer Julie insights into figuring out what she’s come to say and how to finish her essay.  In every class, of every essay, we ask: What is the story about? After several drafts, we hope the narrator can answer this question because every scene and every detail must lead the reader/listener to that conclusion.  Thank you Julie Schoelzel for being brave and sharing your story. Writing Class Radio is co-hosted by Allison Langer (www.allisonlanger.com) and Andrea Askowitz (www.andreaaskowitz.com). This episode of Writing Class Radio is produced by Virginia Lora, Andrea Askowitz and Allison Langer. Mia Pennekamp is our media specialist. Theme music is by Amadians.  There’s more writing class on our website (www.writingclassradio.com), Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/writingclassradio/), Instagram and Twitter (@wrtgclassradio). If you love the lessons you get on each episode, you can get them ALL in one place--our three-part video series--for $50. Click Video Classes on our website. If you want to be a part of the movement that helps people better understand each other through storytelling, follow us on Patreon. For $10/month Andrea will answer all your publishing questions. For $25/month you can join Allison’s First Draft weekly writers group, where you can write and share your work. Go to www.Patreon.com/writingclassradio.
