So, you had big plans for this year, huh? Well my friend, you got 2020'd! Fortunately for you, so did everyone else including Benny, Siobhán, and Cory from the band Lost Symphony. But instead of binge watching the Tiger King, this trio decided to create a Podcast to provide a vehicle for their pent-up creativity. They called up some of their most interesting and successful friends who include recording artists, touring musicians, music industry experts, TV personalities, even a billionaire, and asked these friends to give us their take on current events as well as to share some of their wildest entertainment memories. The result? A series of no-holds-barred discussions chocked with insider information. 2020'd explores the various paths that lead their highly successful guests to their unique lifestyles and prominence in the entertainment industry. Paramount in the podcasts is a healthy serving of rock n' roll war stories that give you a peek behind-the-curtain of the entertainment industry.
