Hey, it's our tenth episode! That's a nice round number. This week, Emilie's brought on our News Editor Anna Codrea-Rado, Managing Editor Colin Joyce, and Social Editor Dillon Riley for a spin through some of this week's dance music news. Anna talks about a piece she's written about the language we use to report on drug deaths at music events—one of the first articles in a series about harm reduction that we'll be running throughout this summer's festival season.

Colin gives us a walk through of his cover story on the reclusive producer Cashmere Cat, who's set to release his debut album 9 this Friday. Finally, to celebrate everyone's favorite holiday—Record Store Day—Dillon recounts a stressful trip to a local music megastore, and we discuss the event's continued relevance after nearly a decade in existence.
