Amazing show

Every episode I have listened to has given me a new appreciation of the song, artist, and Chris. I can’t think of anything that would make this show better. I am so happy this exists.

Outstanding

Chris is an excellent host and I love his attention to detail when discussing songs. I came for the pop punk episodes and never would have heard someone like Verite otherwise (her song is gorgeous!). This is one of my new favorite pods.
