Customer Reviews

All Hail!

I am incredibly excited for this podcast! Like so many people, I have listened to All Hail West Texas probably a thousand times and it is a constant source of energy and inspiration for me. So grateful for you guys making this new thing!

I have chills

I can barely begin to describe the surreal sensation of four what felt to me separate worlds that I have cared deeply about for a while overlapping in episode one of this podcast. I was shaking when Laura was playing the first cover of the best ever death metal band. This podcast is wholly astonishing and inspiring.


Not super familiar with the band but after the first episode I am definitely going to remedy that. Love the passion and the interesting look at creating art.
