I have a feeling this is going to be one of my favorite podcasts now- Justin is one of my fav peeps around and I love hearing the behind the scenes of the bands I love!!

Funny, relatable, and informative

The host has great rapport with the guests and it really comes through in the story telling. As someone who isn't from this background I'm finding the perspective they give to be super interesting. Good story telling makes for a ton of hilarity mixed in with some unexpected emotional moments. Great podcast overall, looking forward to hearing more.

Fantastic show for artists to relate to and for fans to understand

I was a fan of Close Your Eyes when Sonny was in the band and listening to him talk about tour stories and the real nitty gritty from being on the road is extremely interesting as a fan. Sonny has great chemistry with his guests and his wife Suzy is the best. Excited to tune in every other week!
