This is a bonus episode of Culturetopia, NPR's Arts and Culture podcast, in which we take on the formidable force of teen idols. This vital task is precipitated by the outbreak of Bieber fever sweeping the nation. NPR also just launched a new feature on Morning Edition, that explores popular music and the cultural phenomena surrounding it. This podcast is an extended version of the conversation music writer Maura Johnston had with Jay Smooth, of illdoctrine.com, about the hegemony of Justin Bieber.
