Rogan of EDM?

Love this podcast and the guests that he has on!

Love this podcast

I absolutely love this podcast. My life coach Nik Cherwink directed me to listen to it when I was first starting out my own podcast (which still in the beginning stages). But it’s so entertaining getting to hear stories from some of my favorite artists as well as get some inspiration for my own show as my show also centers around the same topic. Thank you Willy Joy for this amazing show!

Yes man who has no personal opinions but interesting guests

Unfortunately this is the only podcast of its kind where you can listen to edm musicians but unfortunately this host speaks too much and really doesn’t have a real pov or personality. He agrees with everything his guests say even when they call him out in contradicting himself. Count the # times he says absolutely, 100%, sure or right. Edm artists are also generally not that interesting, petty and are unilateral - anyone with diverse opinions is shunned and it’s hard to listen to them whine on Twitter.
