New fan!

Could not love this show more. I’m an up and coming Canadian songwriter up in Canada. I got turned on to the podcast because I saw Deric Ruttan post about his episode. I’ve since binged through the entire feed!

You mentioned you were looking for fan suggestions of guests. I Would love to hear an episode with Rhett Atkins!

Keep up the great work! Such a helpful podcast for new writers!
