180 Grams: the stories behind remarkable albums.
180 Grams? The weight of a collector's edition vinyl record.
We'll take you right into the process of albums you love, as told by the key players.
The studio bickering, main stage triumphs, tense late night phone calls and sold out launches.
It's an Access All Areas listening experience that pulls apart how records are conceived, born and grow up in public, from the early demos to the risky creative decisions right up to the finished product.
You'll hear fresh stories from the bands, managers, label big wigs and small wigs, booking agents, icons, all eager to talk about their part in a modern classic.
180 Grams will help you hear albums in a new light, beamed into your brain from a different angle with a deeper perspective and juicy, often spicy insights.
Hosted by Mikey Cahill, music and culture journalist.

6. And That's What Happened With The Teskey Brothers 🏆
How will the difficult second album be received?
As a fan of the Teskeys, this fly on the wall insight into their creative process was amazing.
Beyond that, the quality of story telling and interviewing in this pod is next level brilliant.
Awesome listen for anyone who lives awesome things!!!
I’m my humble opinion, Mikey Cahill is smashing life in the face with his podcasts.
Such a good story on the Tesky brothers.
Very well crafted. Great interviews. Awesome subject matters.
I’d love to be Interviewed by the dude.
Well worth a listen! Start it now!
I recently listened to this series on a drive from Albany to Perth in Western Australia. It was detailed and engaging, giving me enormous respect for the Teskey Brothers band and everyone involved in making their second album. The presenter tied it all together really well with good humour sprinkled throughout. The editing was another top notch effort and I hope to hear about more projects in this podcast in the future.
