Sundays are less scary

There’s a reason why Bandrew is one of the best in this space. Long forms listens of the gear we care about mixed with incredible advice and my favorite brand of humor - unintentional, silly and authentic. A reason to look forward to Sunday nights.

Genuine Podcast

Bandrew is entertaining while remaining authentic and informative. The podcast is interactive and dynamic without straying away from a central focus. I’m 150 episodes in and I’ve yet to come across a episode I didn’t enjoy.

The Dooblie-doo ,

This podcast is awesome.

I wasn’t a fan of podcasts until I heard this. This is the only podcast I actually like listening to. Thank you so much for all of the great content you put out! Keep up the great work.
