I love all your podcasts
Keep them coming!
Just discovered this podcast and I’ve binged season 1 in less than 2 days. I love the hosts and the way they present the information. I enjoy the music. But, there is too many long musical interludes. Do you want to be a music producer or a podcaster? Because the podcast is so great I’m willing to fast forward through the music when it gets excessive and maybe the season 2 is different. Hope you continue to do more. I’ll listen!
The case is really interesting but there are too many musical interludes that go on for too long. Not the examples of Alex’s music, I mean the instrumental clips in between the content
