Is it her content? Is it the level or artist? Or is it Megan specifically? Because that type of content has already been covered on Tiny Desk, and there have been bigger artists.
Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.

Personally I don't listen to those bitches. But.... folks like what they like and NPR can host which ever garbage rapper or stripper they like. Granted, they led some on to believe the people they would have on were only "sophisticated" musicians. And in the beginning, I was one of them. But that was my fault expecting only who I like to hear and see from NPR.
So, they're reaching out to all audiences. And good for them.

Say what you want, but this show makes its money off recontextualizing artists that the typical NPR audience likely finds synthetic, corporate or otherwise manufactured in some way. I think the Megan episode - much like the T-Pain, Mac Miller or Freddie Gibbs episodes - are a wonderful way of reimagining these artists for NPR's audience of people who play real music, have real talent and know their craft.
Whether you like the music or not, I think, isn't always the point of the show.
