I love this podcast.

I love this podcast. The more I listen the more I understand that funk is a lot more than just a genre or style of music. It is also worldwide community of creators and artists connected by common musical ancestors. Every episode, Michael and his guests focus on a particular expression of funk. And it is much more than just a history lesson - they actually play the music that they’re talking about on this podcast.

After listening for a while, a bigger picture of the “funk world” has come into focus that I didn’t even know was there before. Strongly recommend.

Love this Podcast

Love this podcast more and more. The artist Michael interviews have great stories and interesting backgrounds. My favorite part is getting a taste of the music they produce DURING THE PODCAST! I’ve definitely found some new funk favorites.

Funky and smart!

I love it when artists get to talk about their craft, the things they love. This is clearly the aim of this podcast and Michael B is a fantastic host with the knowledge and discipline to know when to prod further, when to “fanboy” out, and when to just let the artist talk. I’d give it 6 stars if I could.
