Todd Nathanson is a Website/YouTube-based reviewer and member to [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses Channel Awesome]], who focuses his snarking on pop music. Combines legitimate complaints with humorous observations and [[ShoutOut/ToddInTheShadows Shout Outs]]. Also, [[TheFaceless he always obscures his face in his videos.]]

Todd has 4 different shows:

* ''Todd's Pop Song Reviews'', where he reviews modern pop songs for how bad (and sometimes good) they are that makes him ask how they even became popular in the first place.
* ''One Hit Wonderland'': [[invoked]]a look at the careers of OneHitWonder artists, their one hit song and analyzes whether or not they had more musical talent than their one hit would imply.
* ''Cinemadonna'': a review series of the entire filmography of Music/{{Madonna}}.
* ''Trainwreckords'': analyzing CareerKiller albums that removed well-known, successful artists from the popular spotlight.
