Get on it

Matt’s podcast has been a hub for supplying me with great music, books and art lately. The conversational style is down to earth, funny, honest and I’ve discovered amazing writers like Poe Ballantine and Nelson Algren, the music of Man Man and lots more awesome creatives. Highly recommend that you give this one a try, and check out the Feral Audio Podcast network for more goodness.
