I loved Exile in Guyville when it first came out. Blew my forehead off. Divorce Song stood out for me then and I didn’t know why. I just fell in love with it all over again. Thanks!

Into the mind of the artist

It's great to hear about the artistic process behind the music. Most interesting for me: some of the artists & songs that I like had less interesting interviews, while some artists that I don't initially love have had ear-opening discussions about the process, which made me respect their songs more.

Always learning

This is a great podcast for those who need to stretch outside their usual musical comfort zone. I can’t believe the depth of talent out there from all over the world. Thanks for bringing new music my way!
