Entertaining but grounded

This is the perfect drummers podcast. Massively wide ranging conversations from playing in an orchestra pit to playing drunk with Marillion.

The hosts know their tech - but even though they work at the awesome Drummers Only store - they’re not here to peddle their goods at you. The only agenda they have is to discuss drums and have a laugh.

They go deep on topics like heads and hoops - they go light on subjects like what the best Star Wars film is - making them great company to have in your ears for commutes and gym sessions.

I’m mildly biased as I’m close to the shop so shop there anyway - but even today found myself going total fanboy on them when I bought new sticks.

You may need a Scottish colloquialism dictionary from time to time - but this is an instantly accessible, hugely entertaining and thoroughly interesting podcast from two people who seem to enjoy each other’s company.
