Tbone Sean ,

Amazing job, Ian!

Fantastic insights into music, teaching and life from a remarkable person. Thank you, Ian, for such a wonderful and thoughtful podcast. I love it!

Awesomely helpful but hard to listen to

I wish his mic setup as better audio quality. Too much reverb gives me motion sickness.
