I love it and couldn’t love it more.

I can’t even with this podcast. I love it so much. It touches me in all the special deep places. It’s laugh-out-loud funny as well as being educational AND introducing me to great new music that an old lady like me wouldn’t find any other way!

Everything about music you never knew you needed to know

I've recently discovered this podcast, thanks to a friend, and so have been on a listening binge on the backlist as I travel to and from work. It is a great combination of music and musicology, and I always learn something new. Even about artists I though I wasn't interested in. If you aren't sure, start with an episode about a song you love and want to know more about, and then just dive into to the whole lot. In the end I went back to the start as they kept referencing old episodes, so I'm simulaneously mid 2016 and also current episodes right now. Highly recommend :)

Great insight

This is such an interesting podcast and I feel like I’ve become a better songwriter simply by listening!
