The Playlist League OpenAir hosts and musical guests battle it out in a podcast that pits playlist against playlist. Each participant drafts 5 songs within a certain musical theme. Then, listeners vote on whose playlist is the best, and the curator of the playlist with the most votes will select the theme for the next episode. This podcast was inspired by a comment from a listener-supporter who wrote, "I was in a 'fantasy playlist league' with some friends where we had to submit our best new tunes each week and vote on them. I won thanks to OpenAir!'
