Great resource

These guys are dope musicians and amazing educators—this podcast is a great resource; I can spend hours listening to them nerd out over practice routines. The Scott Pellegrom interview was especially fire.

Diverse conversations

This is a fantastic podcast with a laid back vibe. Damon and Marcos schedule a great variety of guests from all different corners of the percussion world: college educators, pop music performers, latin musicans, afro-cuban musicians, manufacturers, composers, drum set artists, world percussion artists, marching percussion, etc. You name it and they're covering it. Highly recommend checking this out if you have any interest in the percussion world.

Love it - wish sound was better

Hey guys
Love your podcast - FUN entertaining and both Damon and Marco are outstanding... I just wish Marco didn’t sound like he was under the ocean sometimes.
Favorite episodes: MONTALVO (by far) AND IRIZARRI - some artists also sound not TGAT optimal like the PAOLI MEJIAS episode.
Suggestions:
NICKY MARRERO
RICHITO FLÒREZ
PEDRITO MARTÍNEZ (even if it has to be in Spanish?)
JOSE CLAUSELL!!!
