Great podcast!

The dialogue goes into great depth about the subject matter while covering a wide range of subtopics. Obviously this duo of personalities comes to the table well prepared and are able to stay balanced in their sometimes varying opinions. I really appreciate how they provide musical clips to augment the talking. All in all it's a thoroughly engrossing listen. I'm looking forward to more to come.

Perfect for music fiends and newbies alike

In this world of critics and cynics, it is a genuine pleasure to find two guys who clearly, unabashedly LOVE music. My musical preferences sometimes align with Matt and Pete's -- and other times, I vehemently disagree. Either way, the conversation is always insightful, heartfelt, respectful, fun. I look forward to each new episode.

What a lesson

I realized I was getting my first lesson ever in listening to music. Hearing elements I've never heard before. When it ended I wanted more. Choice of pieces was superb and the exchanges between Matt and Pete totally enjoyable.
