Great Show! Great Humor! God Awful Political Takes :(

Really enjoy this show! The hosts are funny, have an obvious passion for music and music history, and they do excellent research for each episode. Unfortunately they tend to interject their dim political takes into the episodes and it can be a bit cringe. Wish they’d just keep it to the music rather than talking down to half of their listeners. Still highly recommend listening though, they are quite likable people, politics aside. Would love to hear an episode on the great Jim Croce.

Love This Podcast

It covers all genres of music and they always include a spotify playlist with each full episode. I’ve discovered a lot of new music I never would have listed to otherwise. The stories they tell are fascinating and informative. The banter between them when they get off topic can be quite hilarious, especially in season three with the addition of new cast member, the mysterious “Jake”! Well worth the download. I’m hooked!

Stay on topic

The subject matter for this podcast is absolutely incredible. That's why I gave three stars but although the subject matter is great, they go off topic so much that within a 20 minute episode you get about five minutes of the actual story. The hosts are really funny and relatable except the one who constantly bringing everything back to her random experiences that have nothing to do with any of the subject matter. If she interjected less or maybe wasn't even on it, this would be the most amazing podcast!
