Music conversations, like we used to have
The duo of Jay Harren and Jacob ("Jake") Gilmore makes for a powerful back-and-forth style podcast experience that will instantly remind any music fan of those hour-long debates with friends about the best side of your favorite album/cassette. While the hosts are leanding forward and really going deep into the topics du jour, their playful brotherly banter makes for a nice laid back listen.
I have listened to both Amy episodes and love them and will binge the whole podcast 'cause I love how in-depth you all go into artists and their catalogs. Please have Amy on again to talk about another one of her influences!
I came on exclusively for Episode 15 because of Amy Lee, but now I'm binging the previous episodes! It's great for the novice or the pro, the musician or the enthusiast. It really reminds me of conversations that I used to have in my living room when I was in college. Not a U2 guy, but I really loved Amy Lee's cover of With or Without You. Does that count, Jay? Seriously though, listen! You won't regret it.
