Truly Wonderful

This podcast paints a beautiful picture to these composers lives. I love that I can hear the story and then listen to the music so I understand the emotions behind it. Simply splendid and I need more!

Great show... hope it continues

What a great podcast if you love classical music. The history told in such an interesting way, humanizes the great composers. My hope is that this series continues about the many other composers. Love listening to Jade Simmons and the way the music is weaves into the story.

Great show!

I listened to the entire first season in one marathon session while I did chores. The writing on this show is fun, interesting, and engaging, and the host’s energy and love for music are infectious. Looking forward to season two.
