Best of the Year: 2020

The Preview Show

The PopFilter Taste Buds and the Unnatural 20’s preview the FIVE podcasts they’re dedicating to the year that was 2020!

Every year, the PopFilter podcasts come together, along with the ladies from the Unnatural 20’s, to take an in-depth look back at the year that was. That means they have to do it with 2020 too. And this is the podcast that kickstarts it all, where you get a little sneak peek at everything that’s coming. Make sure to subscribe to this feed to get a chance to listen to all of these shows! Including:

THE 2020 MIXTAPE

The annual event continues, with just a few changes thanks to Covid.
