This episode we tackle Electropop with Scott's better half Megan sitting in with us to discuss what we think Electropop is and is not. Brandon lays down the law. Sorry kids, no Pet Shop Boys. "Electropop or electronic pop is a musical genre which combines electronic music and pop music, with a primary usage of synthesizers and various electronic and pop musical instruments. The genre has seen a revival of popularity and influence since the 1980s, all the way to the 2010s." - Wikipedia
