Medialoper Bebop Episode 14: Can’t Stop Spoiling

Kirk, Tim & Jim are back after an unexplained hiatus, and here’s what they’re talking about this week:

Spoilers. That UCSD study that supposedly said that spoilers actually enhance people’s enjoyment of stories.

The latest battle between musicians and the major labels: how the copyright law might allow artists to control their old recordings.

And in the latest installment of our “You’re an Idiot” segment: Jim is a Windows guy. Kirk & Tim, not so much.

In Jim’s mix: Gil Scott-Heron, tUnE-yArDs, Low and an old R.E.M. bootleg favorite finally gets officially released.

All that, and a Musical Moment with The Who, on Medialoper Bebop Episode 14: Cant Stop Spoilng, brought to you by the DuroSport Electronics Company, where they’ve revolutionized the music player with their new DuroCloud Player.
