Phenomenal Stories

This podcast is so inspiring and easy to listen to. Most everyone know of the composers and artists who are the subjects of the podcast, but often do not know the “behind the scenes” details of the story being told. Jade Simmons does a phenomenal job of bringing these stories to life.

I thoroughly enjoyed each and every episode. Please bring more of them to life!

I personally would love to hear an episode about Leonard Bernstein.

Thank you.

Expanding my horizons

As someone with very little background info about composers, I've been grateful to have this opportunity to learn more with a podcast that's really fun to listen to.
