The latest episode of Rolling Stone Music Now, our first-ever podcast, is now available. Listen and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, or check it out below.

For this episode, we discuss the fact that many pop stars and rockers have causes – but when are they really able to make a difference, and when should they keep their mouth shut? Rolling Stone music and politics editors run down the most successful examples of pop activism, from the No Nukes concert in 1978 to Bruce Springsteen’s North Carolina boycott. Plus, new music from D.R.A.M., Cate Le Bon and Pity Sex

Rolling Stone Music Now, hosted by Executive Editor Nathan Brackett, is a new weekly podcast that features interviews with marquee artists, a look inside the week’s hottest music news, a sampling of what’s playing in the Rolling Stone office and much more. Brackett is joined each week by a rotating panel of Rolling Stone’s writers and editors.
