Really interesting

Love how the podcast syncs with a playlist too. Can you interview Sia, please?

Thank you!

I have loved listening to each episode of the first two series in the last month and can’t wait for the new series!
Initially I had wanted to know more about the process of the writing itself but it’s not what the show is about, not entirely anyway. I can get that elsewhere anyway (on the excellent ‘Sodajerker on Songwriting’ for example).
The enlightening interviews put us ‘in the room’ with the respective writers as they create and tell us their backstories.
I particularly find the advice for upcoming songwriters helpful.
Some of my favourite episodes have been Savan Kotecha, Bebe Rexha, Bonnie McKee, Nolan Lambroza, Lindy Robbins, Julia Michaels (of course), Mikkel Eriksen and David Israelite.

Amazing insight

Thanks so much for starting this podcast! It's so inspiring to hear from the people that are right at the coalface sculpting the current pop landscape. You can hear the wit and emotional intelligence in each guest, the self-awareness and the confidence and determination that you need in order to succeed in not just this one but any business - and none of them are dicks! Every guest has an interesting story, offers genuinely useful advice for aspiring songwriters and really interesting anecdotes. A must listen for anyone curious about the business, with aspirations to write songs or wanting to improve their craft. Thanks again and looking forward to hearing future instalments!
