Great

I listen to a lot of music related podcasts where the hosts seem to just be phoning it in a lot of the time but Damian genuinely seems to be so happy every time he has a guest on a gets to nerd out about punk and music. Well worth a listen.

Stantoner ,

Boring

The interviewer constantly tries to turn everything back to himself that the interviewee is talking about. It could have been great if his ego didn’t get in the way

GaryBadger ,

Must listen for punk fans

Damian is a truly engaging host and is able create absorbing and wonderfully nerdy conversations with a diverse catalogue of people that punk has played a part in the shaping of.
