Customer Reviews

I like it.

Ronen is an insightful old punk rocker who only talks to insightful old punk rocker. Mosh.

Welcome to Awesometown

Ronen is a multimedia machine! Books, records, zines, podcasts; it seems he's got a punk rock Midas touch. One of the very few podcasts I actually bother to listen to. Even when he's interviewing a band (or whoever) I don't like, he still manages to make it interesting.

One of the Best

Issue Oriented is a fantastic podcast; and I thank Ronen, the gang, the artists, musicians, label owners, and music supporters for bringing the world this great quality piece of mind. As others have said, Ronen and the topics discussed are very insightful into what goes on behind the music, what the music itself is about, what the scene is about, and also transgresses into other things that often go undiscussed with the depth that things do in this podcast.

Time and time again I have been turned onto this new and great music that I have never heard before. Occasionally, my views and opinions of the world have even been challenged - sometimes reaffirming what I believe, sometimes changing them completely.

I'd love to see and hear more from this podcast in the future. Keep it going strong! Support this thing!
