Todd Nathanson is a former Website/YouTube-based reviewer, now featured on [[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.]]

A frequent "SpecialGuest" on WebVideo/PushingUpRoses' "LetsPlay Shorties". Todd normally appears on Roses' Let's Plays of {{Edutainment}} PC games from the early 90s. He also has frequent cameo roles in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick's videos, which he often also helps write. Apart from his normal ''Todd's Pop Song Reviews'' series, he also does a show called ''One Hit Wonderland'', where he looks at OneHitWonder artists' careers, their one hit song and analyzes whether or not they had more musical talent than their one hit would imply, and had another show, ''Cinemadonna'', which he acknowledges is his version of Disneycember where he covered the entire filmography of Music/{{Madonna}}.
