I knew a lot about FSF, but learned so much.
I love the format of the show. So produced and clean.
Way to go guys!
Expectations not met.
Was hoping to hear more from the "horses" mouth then hearing what the three (seriously, you need three?) hosts had to think about the situation. Felt they really didnt allow for anyone in the actual band able to finish the points they were trying to make and felt like I listened to an incomplete podcast. Also, I get that Matt and Toby are well deserved podcast darlings, but can we have someone else host something for once? There has to be other great story tellers in the Tooth and Nail family they can use. Don't know how many more Emery stories I can take when I am trying to listen about other bands, etc.
The pod is well produced and the stories are good but what about the earlier tooth and nail artists? Plankeye was one of T/N's bigger artist and touched a lot of people. I would love to hear about them and other early artist.
