It’s great to hear from so many different songwriters and how they go through their creative process and the struggles they face in doing so. After listening, I’ve never been more inspired to write my own songs. Every new episode just creates another spark of creativity! I’m also loving the Fender guitar intros. What a great way to start each episode.

Such an amazing podcast for every creative soul out there!

This podcast is helping me so much with my creative process ✨Listening to those guys (can’t wait to hear some girls too 😉) talk about how it’s made, and realizing that we all go through the same doubts, the same kind of blockage, it’s such a relief. Also getting to peek through the creative process of those amazing creative minds, man! The geeky studio and tools conversations, witch I must admit I only understand a small portion of, is really interesting! I know Jim tries to régenter the conversation sometimes, but really, it’s teaching me a lot! And just for Jim’s intro with the Fender guitars thing you should listen 😂
