How to listen to music, essentially

I loved the intro (Counting Crows) episode of this podcast, as well as the first episode. There is a thoughtfulness to the layout and to the conversation that is at once exciting and yet simultaneously calming. This podcast beautifully unfolds the ideas, story, and history behind the music, without removing the mystery altogether. Kevin has a tender way with his guest, pulling out enough but not too much. Think Terry Gross with a less edgy haircut.

This podcast reminds me of what the listening experience can be while not on a treadmill, or on a busy commute, but instead like it was when we were kids - total immersion. Its a good reminder to let the music and lyrics germinate and root within, and not rush through never realizing there was a seed in the first place.

Must listen for music lovers and pretty much everyone

This is a must listen for music lovers and pretty much everyone. Kevin is a super talented singer songwriter and he explores the sounds and stories. I appreciate music so much more when I really understand the story behind the music.

Loving this podcast and can’t wait for more episodes to come out.
Keep it up Kevin!

Cuts to the heart of the creative process

Out of nowhere, this has become one of my favourite podcasts. I love the way Kevin has framed these episodes as a conversation sandwiched between two songs. I say two songs because, even though it’s the same both times, the second listen feels like a completely different song because of the logos and pathos revealed in the interview.
