The best podcast ever!

Each episode is a real gem. Mr Adolph is an amazing musician and lecturer with a great sense of humor. As a professional composer, I enjoy his composition analysis and the historical background he presents. I hope many more episodes will be added! Congratulations for the work, Mr. Adolphe!

Adolphe explains music

You have to pay attention to this podcast but it’s worth it. I listen to a lot of music but never had a chance to understand how it works until now. Adolphe shows how great composers break the rules. And he does this with wit and grace.

Great content, poor audio production

I love this podcast but the audio production fails to meet a bare minimum. It’s extremely quiet and with the volume cranked, the occasional mic bumps are painful with headphones on. Excerpts are barely audible and it would be nice if they were mixed in. Some light dynamic compression, and normalization would work wonders and spare listeners actual aural pain when trying to hear.
