Souther Gothic Rock: The Right Amount of Country

By Caden ZieglerWeb Content Contributor Though I am a native Texas and come from a family of deep-southern country folks, I don’t have any personal affection for country music. Play some George Strait, yeah I can get down to it, but you won’t find any Garth Brooks on my playlists. I don’t want to hear a million songs about trucks, Jesus, prison and mama. However, I have recently fallen in […]

Top Tracks From Netflix Shows

By Caden ZieglerWeb Content Contributor Apart from listening to KTSW, I get most of my music from my friends or, surprisingly, the shows I stream on various services.

Witch Amateur Hour: Podcast Review

By Caden ZieglerWeb Content Contributor You have your crystals and your smudge stick, but there’s still something missing. Something you can’t quite put your finger on. You find yourself wandering around a bookstore (or maybe the internet) and you stumble across a word that carries quite a bit of umph: Witch. Immediately, a gnarled-nosed woman appears in your mind, hunched over a boiling and bubbling cauldron. Maybe, you click on […]

HosTing Now: Methamphetamine Crisis in the Gay Community

By Caden Ziegler Web Content Contributor “HosTing now” is a common screen name when scrolling through gay apps, and it takes a little information about the colloquial terms used by the LGBT+ community to dissect its meaning. “Hosting” means that one is looking for a sexual partner and is willing to invite them over to their house.

April: Alcoholism Awareness Month

By Caden Ziegler Web Content Contributor April has a ton of national observances, but I would like to focus on one: Alcoholism Awareness. There are countless charities, but it can be difficult separating which ones actually do good and are beneficial to the cause.
