Hope there is another season
I really enjoy this show
A New Favorite
I came to Midnight Lightning as a fan of Laura Veirs' music and it has quickly become the podcast I look forward to most each week. While I'm neither a musician nor a parent myself (yet!), I found every episode to be enlightening, entertaining, and full of wisdom. Laura is a wonderful podcast host with a great radio voice! I'm looking forward to season two of the podcast and in the meantime I'll be recommending Midnight Lightning to all the podcast fans I know!
I'm Not Alone!!!
I love this podcast. As a musician-mom, it helps me to know others have done this before me, I am not alone, it is possible, and that there is no one way to make it work. I enjoy hearing from a diverse group of guests.
