From the position of a musician and a young attorney, I find Brock's podcast hugely valuable for both music and business applications. Love it: keep 'em coming.
Quality resource for musicians!
Just was much as you’d listen to a health podcast if you are trying to achieve health goals, musicians need this as their Industry Bible. Brock covers questions musicians usually don’t the knowledge of or access to. Trying to research these topics via the endless online sea is daunting and mostly useless, but getting an Entertainment Lawyer’s perspective of the industry, where its at, where it’s going, & how to succeed is needed by all musicians. Love it!!
Really great show!
Loving this podcast. Episode topics are interesting, the content is incredibly helpful, and the episode length is perfect. Keep up the great work, Brock.
