The '80s: Descendents — Milo Goes To College (w/ Hanif Abdurraqib)
Updated: Jul 29
In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy are joined by poet, essayist, and cultural critic Hanif Abdurraqib (@NifMuhammad, abdurraqib.com) to discuss the seminal 1982 Descendents album Milo Goes to College. It’s a wider-ranging chat than usual, thanks to Hanif’s incredible insight and thoughtfulness about how and why we connect with music at different stages. Find out more about the album’s iconic artwork, how we deal with problematic lyrics nearly 40 years later, and whether Milo actually went to college on this week’s podcast.
