An inspired journey
Love this podcast! When I started listening I picked a couple of shows where I kind of knew the guest but as I listened more it really didn’t matter who the guest was. The direction of linking music to personal stories makes every episode interesting and enjoyable. I have heard some songs that are new favorites as well as some that I can’t stand but the stories and personal connection make it all awesome! Keep up the great work
The content of the show is certainly unique in how it brings music into the true biography of your life. Every guests story is different which keeps me wanting to hear more on what each week will bring to me.
Very creative and delightful to listen to!
