Unhappy & Frustrated ,

Refreshing

Really enjoyed a fresh approach to their story.
Focusing on the dynamic between the two main songwriters versus the usual trivia and anecdotes we’ve heard a zillion times was refreshing.
Once the breakup arc they’ve been covering is over, I wonder where the podcast will go?
Looking forward to the ‘’Jean Jacket Tears’’ when they reach a wider audience...
