I take back my previous comment

Great content all the way through, listened to more episodes and I realized it’s not so much hate, as it is devils avocet. That’s my bad. Keep it up

Crashman514 ,

A pleasure to listen to...

As a veteran dj, it's great to hear these seasoned experts talk about the craft but more importantly, all the other components of the biz that may be overlooked. Having just discovered this podcast, it made me greatful that these guys put in the effort of producing quality content. Great interviews and great topics. I'm a new fan for life.
