Fun, Interesting, Easy to listen to!

This podcast is really fun and interesting! There are tons of cool behind the scenes looks into the music/publishing/writing business laced with sarcastic wit. You feel like you’re sitting in a coffee shop with Bart and his buddies just chilling and chatting (or thinking and drinking😝). Thanks for a fun, easy to listen to show!
