#150: Music Awards, Meghan Markle, Toast
Play • 28 min
It’s been a big week for music statues, with the ARIA Awards going down, and the Grammy nominations going up. Diversity on both fronts is on the rise, but The Weeknd ain’t happy. A great read on a new generation’s viewing of Diana’s “princess story” has us also reflecting on the shifting stories around cultural institutions, while an op-ed penned by The Duchess of Sussex shows she continues to do things her way. It’s our 150th episode too, so a good chance to introduce a new segment: Things We Don’t Understand. And Myf is pumped about a new US spin off series of Toast of London, while Zan is shoulder dancing in her seat to the new concert film American Utopia.

Ep 153 - 2020 Best Of List
Trudging towards the end of 2020, Crabb and Sales come together one last time. Ordinarily this end-of-year reckoning would occur on stage at the ANU amid low-grade insults directed at vice-chancellor and Bundt-auteur Brian Schmidt, but as with many pleasurable events in 2020 it was binned. Screw you, 2020! With their remaining nanoparticles of neural capacity, the pair recap what they can remember of what they read, watched, cooked, and listened to in this plague year.  Film Sales and Crabb (1.40) Hamilton Movie on Disney Plus  Sales (2.20) The Gentlemen | Trailer Fiction Crabb (4.00) A Lonely Girl is a Dangerous Thing by Jessie Tu **Crabb’s Choice Honorable Mentions (3.00) Rodham by Curtis Sittenfeld (3.20) Sorrow and Bliss by Meg Mason Sales (5.30) A Room Made of Leaves by Kate Grenville Honorable Metion (5.40) The Living Sea of Waking Dream by Richard Flanagan Non Fiction Sales (7.00) Dear Mr You by Mary-Louise Parker Honorable Mention (8.10) More Than A Woman by Caitlin Moran Crabb (9.20) Hoax by Brian Stelter TV Sales (13.00) The Last Dance | Netflix | Trailer (13.20) The Bureau | Trailer | SBS On Demand Honorable Mentions (11.30) The Morning Wars | Apple TV | Trailer | Based on the book Top of the Morning - Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV by Brian Stelter (12.00) Love | Netflix | Trailer Crabb  (15.00) Succession Season 2 Trailer (16.40) Reputation Rehab | iView | Trailer Honorable Mentions (14.00) The Last Dance | Netflix | Trailer (14.20) The Great | Trailer | Stan Podcasts Sales (20.00) Strong Songs Podcast - Episode - "Tightrope" by Janelle Monáe Crabb (26.30) Rabbit Hole Podcast by Kevin Roose - New York Times Honorable Mentions (24.00) Debutante: Race, Resistance and Girl Power by Nakkiah Lui and Miranda Tapsell  (25.20) The Eleventh Podcast by ABC - Website - Apple Podcasts (25.40) Trace Podcast Season 2 with Rachael Brown Internet Stuff Sales  (27.00) Nats What I Reckon  Cook Yourself - A Ratbag’s Rules for Life by Nats What I Reckon (28.00) Hamish Blake Instragram Crabb  (28.30) The Tape | Sarah Cooper: Everything's Fine - Sarah Cooper  Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine - Netflix Cooking Sales (30.00) Cook and The Baker by Cherie Bevan Crabb  (31.30) Ligurian Focaccia by Samin Nosrat  Honorable Mention (31.00) To Asia, With Love By Hetty McKinnon  Produced by DM Podcasts These episode is brought to you by the film Nomadland.

Best of 2020
So we’ve taken another trip around the sun, and before we have a short break – I want to leave you with the annual best of buffet, for the Take 5. It’s been a remarkable year for this podcast. When the borders closed, and the tours stopped, we – just like everyone else – had to figure out how to do things differently. What I realised pretty quickly, is that music was central to how we got through… and for many of us, those deep connections in the stories that we tie to songs, got even stronger. A silver lining to 2020 was reaching out beyond the guests I could share a studio with. We spoke to people from all over the world, all walks of life. And got heroes who had been on my bucket list for years, to finally say yes. This year we were also awarded Best Radio Podcast at the Australian Podcast Awards; which I’m hugely proud of. I love the Take 5 and love sharing these conversations with you every week. If this is your first time listening, it’s a bloody good place to start. Over the next little while, we’ll visit some of the best moments...  that mirrored the beauty, the tumult, and the grounding force of music in all our lives. J Walter Negro And The Loose Joints – ‘Shoot The Pump’ (chosen by Fatboy Slim) Prince – 'Let’s Go Crazy' (chosen by Susan Rogers) Christine Anu – 'Island Home' (chosen by Miranda Tapsell) Micko Donovan - 'Promised Land' (chosen by Emma Donovan) Elvis Costello - 'Shipbuilding' (chosen by Peter Garrett) Midnight Oil – 'Beds are Burning' (chosen by Daniel Levitin) Gloria Gaynor – 'I Will Survive' (chosen by Kylie Minogue) Joe Smooth - ‘Promised Land’ (chosen by Bernard Sumner) The Stooges - ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ (chosen by Roisin Murphy) Nina Simone – 'Mississippi Goddamn' (chosen by Tori Amos)
