This week on Audio Files: Trending.

Stories of leading, following, and jumping on the bandwagon. We’ll take a look into the bizarre world of viral web videos, and hear from a group of New Yorkers who are trying to change the tide on how we think about—well… changing tides.

We’ll challenge the long-held wisdom that young voters are always the “hopey-changey” crowd in politics. Then, Greg Young of the Bowery Boys Podcast joins us in the studio to share some strange fads from New York City’s history.

Finally, we’ll hear some live traditional West African music that’s sure to outlast even the biggest Taylor Swift single.
