Customer Reviews

Everything about music you never knew you needed to know

I've recently discovered this podcast, thanks to a friend, and so have been on a listening binge on the backlist as I travel to and from work. It is a great combination of music and musicology, and I always learn something new. Even about artists I though I wasn't interested in. If you aren't sure, start with an episode about a song you love and want to know more about, and then just dive into to the whole lot. In the end I went back to the start as they kept referencing old episodes, so I'm simulaneously mid 2016 and also current episodes right now. Highly recommend :)

Great insight

This is such an interesting podcast and I feel like I’ve become a better songwriter simply by listening!

Loving this podcast

Great for learning about songs and song writing and super funny too!
