2018 Polaris Music Prize Long List Gets Discussed In Polaris Podcast EP 17

Polaris Podcast EP7 was live from Ottawa.

It may be a shock to people, but each year at Polaris the 40 album Long List reveal is usually our most popular time.

People give a shit about making the Long List and, though it could be argued the jury sometimes misses albums, it’s always a great snapshot of the best Canadian music in a given year.

For episode 17 of the Polaris Podcast we got jurors Michael Rancic, Erin Lowers and Christine McAvoy to analyze what trends they saw in this year’s list, what albums they voted for, and what album they think will win the whole thing this year.
