Questlove Supreme is a weekly podcast hosted by Questlove: The Roots drummer, pop culture icon, NYU Professor, tastemaker and the first strategic ambassador and advisor at Pandora. New episodes are available on Wednesdays and run exclusively on Pandora.

A combination of interviews, humor, pop culture and music, listeners get to hear him chat and trade jokes with guests like Maya Rudolph, Solange, Shep Gordon, Q-Tip, and The Revolution. Consequence of Sound summed the show up as a "music junkie's dream," specifically for it's "handpicked mixtape of Questlove-approved jams."[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The show began as an extension of the music courses Questlove taught at NYU and is what he calls "black nerd version of NPR." To prepare for each episode, Questlove personally listens to around 200 songs. He describes the partnership with Pandora as, "...a commitment deeper than any girlfriend I've ever had, or any diet I've tried to stick to."[2]

The second season of the podcast launched on April 26th with a three part episode featuring Babyface. New features were also introduced, including a condensed format, chapter segments that allow listeners to revisit and pause the episode and the ability to listen to past episodes. The station also features a constantly updated mix of songs referenced on the show.[3]
