In this special summer trivia mini-episode of Hit Parade, host Chris Molanphy is joined by the host and producers of Slate’s new podcast One Year, which introduces you to the people and ideas that changed American history—one year at a time. The first season of One Year, which wrapped up just this week, covers 1977: a year when gay rights hung in the balance, Roots dominated the airwaves, and Jesus appeared on a tortilla.
Besides all these happenings, 1977 was also a big year for music: from Rumours to Saturday Night Fever to Never Mind the Bollocks. And our next episode of Hit Parade will be about another musically significant year, 1971—the year of Tapestry, Imagine and Shaft. So we’re celebrating with a ’70s trivia extravaganza. See If you can beat One Year host and Slate national editor Josh Levin, One Year co-producer Evan Chung, assistant producer Madeline Ducharme, and Slate senior culture editor Allegra Frank. You can listen to One Year on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen.
