wrek the news ~ iconic music videos made by women and nonbinary folx !!

hey everyone! i don’t normally make posts for WREK the News, but i thought it might be pertinent to have a record of the music videos we discussed in today’s episode, in case anyone wanted to check em out!

this episode was a special celebration of women and nonbinary people in music for WREK’s “24 on the 31st” initiative! a great big thank you to the news team for their help in putting this episode together, and to my cohost joelle for being lovely as always! unfortunately, due to copyright issues and our website’s interface, i can’t directly embed the music videos in this post. i’ve pasted the link next to the title, hopefully that’s ok! thanks for bearing with me 🙂
