"When I ask someone, ‘What have you been listening to?’ I’m trying to learn something about them. The one-line ‘This is my jam’ approach is useless to me, because your relationship to the song in question— beyond the fact that you like it and want to share it— is completely unknown. The fact that someone would find music interesting purely by virtue of the fact that I am listening to it is foreign to me. What I listen to does not seem notable; why I listen to it might be. I need context."
— Mark Richardson on This Is My Jam and the trappings of “sharing” culture in the latest Resonant Frequency.
