Customer Reviews

Just brilliant.

I’m sad to have finished this series. What a great bunch of conversations. Can’t wait to see where you guys take it next.

Man I don’t even listen to the Mountain Goats...

...but John’s dope voice talking all that deep brilliance got me from every angle. Do yourself a favour and listen you fools!

I only listen to podcasts about the Mountain Goats

I didn't even know the Mountain Goats before this, and I'm torn between being glad I get to discover them in this wonderful format and the sadness of missing them all my life until now. The podcast has amazing guests and covers, but I also just love the bits when Joseph and John are talking. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves creativity and talking about life and the creative process.
