Added to my podcast list!

Discovered this through The For King and Country Episode. Absolutely loved it. Like the format, the length and loved the in studio live performance! Will be checking out some other episodes for sure!

Great addition to Popcast w/ a reservation

Just found this podcast today, and am so happy to find another chart talk podcast from industry quasi-insiders.

Would love even more analysis on broad trends in the music biz and sounds.

Also: more than once I jumped at the harsh entry of songs and interviews. The voices are excellently produced, just please please make sure to fade in other content more gradually.

Love the podcast

Love the podcast. Only one suggestion, not a fan of Trevor - sorry 😐 Why is Trevor always so smug about his opinion? I don’t like him.
