Customer Reviews

Fascinating and really well made

Totally love this podcast. The first two episodes covered tracks I thought I knew well, but now I'm noticing all sorts of details I never heard before. Really well researched, really well produced, and really really needs to be more frequent! I'm dying waiting for the next episode :-)

Great idea

I love this show. I tend to pick tracks apart in my head when listening to them, but with the addiction of the artist talking explaining everything, it brings a new level of appreciation. Keep up the great work.

Friggin Cool
