10: “Hailing a TAXI CAB” – Jagged Little Pill

Why are you so petrified of silence? See if you can handle this as the When We Were Young podcast revisits Alanis Morissette’s 1995 monolithic album JAGGED LITTLE PILL. One of the best-selling albums of all time, and with about half its songs chart-topping singles, this album is and has always been pigeonholed as “angry chick rock.”

Join our hosts as we contemplate our musical outlets for anger, discuss our personal histories with Jagged Little Pill and Alanis while revisiting each song, and end the show with a cover of one of the hosts’ favorite deep album cuts.

When We Were Young is a podcast devoted to the most beloved pop culture of our formative years (roughly 1980-2000). Join us for a look back to the past with a critical eye on how these movies, songs, TV shows and more hold up now.
