Been loving eTwon for years!
Etown has introduced me to many new musicians throughout the years. Love going to the shows, love the podcasts when I can't go. Music and environmental awareness. What a great combination.
Preacher in any Form
I love the music and artists that this podcast uses to push its agenda. Having lived in boulder for a number of years, and having been gone for a few months, this podcast resembles the song that reminds you of a bad relationship. It reeks of the holier-than-thou mentality that seeps from the heart of the Boulder bubble to pollute and condemn those poor souls who fail to shop at Whole Foods, drive a Subaru, or wear Patagonia. Thank you for the music, No thank you for the sermon. Preach On and Amen to pure white kettles and rose scented…
Tried this podcast because of the music. I was offended by the leftist propaganda spewing from the hosts and the artists as well. It may seem to be well intentioned, but is condescending as they seem to take an elitist attitude. Check out a line from 8/14/12: "don't want to get political, but I'm sure the tea party would disagree." Yeah, right.
