Chad Austin is NUTS!
Great show! Chad is a funny guy and is always dropping puns, but his podcast is insightful and diverse. Plenty of great stuff for music lovers of all backgrounds.
I agree with the previous poster, Chad has a great demeanor, and carries a good conversational tone throughout the interviews. I really enjoy these insights into an incredibly talented pool of musicians. The Mesh is rapidly becoming tops on my list of media outlets.
This show features great local artists! A must listen!
