Dan & Dan=outstanding. Spot on. Check it out.

Working Mans Podcast

Despite a lack of appreciation for The Dead, the podcasts are insightful, interesting and not pretentious. The Dans are encyclopedic in their knowledge of many genres and the interviews are just left of center enough to keep things light and really fun.

Great pod!

Doing a music pod ain’t easy. These guys love music and are hilarious. They also have great takes and strong opinions (embrace debate). I was yelling in my car listening to their terrible Grateful Dead opinions. It’s the songwriting and the guitar pickin’ guys.
