Fantastic Series

Sad, that it seems not to be coming back a year on.

Funny , irreverent and genuinely interesting

Can’t get enough of this podcast. Grew up reading Mick Wall’s often hilarious articles in Kerrang in the mid to late 80’s and this podcast pretty much continues along the same theme. Joel is a great foil for the sneering vitriol of Mr Wall.

Would never have given Lou Reed the time of day but after listening to Mick Wall’s passionate espousal of his work I might just be tempted to give ole Lou a Listen. As for his night time habits I will be giving them a wide berth.

List this podcast under “Essential “.

When is the new series due to start?

Listening to someone eating is pretty off putting... but the rest is good!

It’s a funny and interesting podcast, however listening to older guy chewing on food is pretty off putting.
