I love this stuff.
I've always been a fan. I'm happy to have found them on iTunes now. Very excited. Always a high level of production. Always a high level of energy. I'd recommend this to anyone interested great mixes of multiple genres who is willing and able to dance their faces off. Fuqq this is delicious.

New Age music is not only alive and well, it is thriving, and thanks in no small part to the efforts of this podcast series. (I mean...probably, right!?!?) Enjoy the series now before if gets acquired by TimeLife Inc. to be sold on late night infomercials.
Diverse, but consistent.
ANTS Podcast is a fun and eclectic mix of mixes with a consistently high level of quality. I first reviewed back in 2014 and it's even better now than it was then.
