Another great Duckfeed show
I'm a big fan of Gary and Kole and all of their shows on Duckfeed, and I got really excited when they announced this because R.E.M. is a band I've always been a casual fan of (my mom loved them) and wanted to get into more. This show is a bit more on the "serious" side compared to some of their other shows like Abject Suffering, but Gary and Kole always put a ton of effort and research into their shows, and it always shows when it's something they're passionate about. If you're not familiar with Duckfeed but are a fan of R.E.M. (or an aspiring fan) you'll love this, and if you ARE a Duckfeed fan but aren't familiar with R.E.M. you should definitely give it and the band a shot.
In depth coverage of R.E.M.
Great first episode- looking forward to many more!
Duckfeed continues to put out excellent shows
Duckfeed.tv is by far my favorite podcast network for a variety of reasons. The topics they discuss are all given such attention to detail, and this show is no exception. Whether you've been a fan of R.E.M. since the Athens days or a casual listener, this is definitely a show to check out
