The Hot Conversation: Kayleigh Hughes

Kayleigh Hughes Hot Conversation

The purpose of this podcast is to shine a light on weird culture all around Austin, from poetry to fashion to comedy to music (we do, however, have a soft spot for Texas hip hop). Normally JRo outta #LeagueDJz spins and breaks tracks from Texas musicians but this week Ovrld’s own Morgan Davis fills in for him, sitting down with Protextor to chop it up over Lone Star Beers with this week’s guest. The result is a casual hang with real people doing cool shit in ATX. It’s not radio and it’s not an interview — it’s a hot conversation. Today we’re joined by Kayleigh Hughes, who writes music criticism for publications like Pitchfork, Consequence of SoundPaste and more (and contributes to Ovrld) and also has done film writing for Bustle. Kayleigh spoke to us about the enduring power of Legally Blonde, why Daddy Issues’ cover of “Boys of Summer” is better than the original, and played some music by some of her favorite Austin artists.
