June's a natural!
Informative and fresh
I've found a lot of bands I otherwise wouldn't have heard from this podcast. Hearing what different women put into their music and their process behind it is really great. I definitely suggest this to anyone looking to discover some new music or female driven music.
Grrl on Grrl is rad!
June brings the listener into a world of strong voices, unique perspectives, and progressive music through her podcast. Music plays an important role in my life and learning about others' personal and musical journeys helps me gain insight and connect to the heart and soul of the musician. I always look forward to listening to Grrl on Grrl.
