Epic Footnote Productions presents a series of podcast programs where Matt + Zach get to debate and geek out over their favorite topic: music.

    Cassettes’ Resurgence - “Am I Missing Something?” | Epic Footnote Productions

    Cassettes’ Resurgence - “Am I Missing Something?” | Epic Footnote Productions

    It’s 2022 - there are a plethora of ways for music fans to consume high-quality audio with ease… so why the heck are cassettes still being produced by bands and labels?! Furthermore, who is actually going out of their way to buy new music in a physical format that even at the height of its popularity was considered inconvenient to use and inferior in sound quality? 
     
    That’s what Matt and Zach discuss in the latest episode of “Am I Missing Something?,” a podcast where we analyze popular or unpopular bands, albums, songs or music trends in an attempt to figure out what we seem to be “missing.” The goal isn’t to ridicule, but rather to gain a better understanding of what a majority of fans see or don’t see in something that Matt and Zach simply can’t wrap their heads around.

    In 2022, "South Park" celebrates 25 years as one of TV's most popular, clever, and sometimes controversial animated shows.

    Rammstein, “Zeit” - 2 Minutes to Review | Epic Footnote Productions

    Rammstein, “Zeit” - 2 Minutes to Review | Epic Footnote Productions

    Wait, didn’t Rammstein JUST release their self-titled album? Don’t get us wrong - we’ll always happily take new music from the Neue Deutsche Härte pioneers. But does the German group’s eighth studio album, “Zeit”, prove they’re still the most dangerous band in the world? Or has the time (or as they say in Germany, “zeit”) come for them to say adieu?
     
    Find out what Matt and Zach think in Epic Footnote Productions’ “2 Minutes to Review,” a podcast that’s part album review and part competition. In each episode, both hosts are given two minutes each to review a newly released album or a classic record they’re revisiting. Whoever gives the longest review in under two minutes wins.

    Jack White, “Fear of the Dawn” - 2 Minutes to Review | Epic Footnote Productions

    Jack White is one of modern rock's most eccentric performers. So how does his first of two new albums being released in 2022 - the harder-edge sounding "Fear of the Dawn" - stand up against his vast catalog that spans multiple bands and solo offerings? 
     
    Find out what Matt and Zach think in Epic Footnote Productions’ “2 Minutes to Review,” a podcast that’s part album review and part competition. In each episode, both hosts are given two minutes each to review a newly released album or a classic record they’re revisiting. Whoever gives the longest review in under two minutes wins.

    Red Hot Chili Peppers, “Unlimited Love” - 2 Minutes to Review

    A new Red Hot Chili Peppers album with John Frusciante for the first time in more than 15 years is enough to make “Unlimited Love” one of 2022’s most anticipated releases. But does RHCP’s 12th studio offering live up to its hype and potential?

If You’re A Music Geek Like I Am...

...then give these guys a listen! The shows are fun, engaging, and as a listener you feel like you’re a part of the conversation, not being lectured too. I personally dig the “2 Minute Review” competition segments, as that offers a refreshing spin on album reviews, and you’re getting two points of view at once! Hope to do a crossover episode with you guys one day!

Oh pokey 1210 ,

Love the debate

I have to say, this is great to hear two different takes on albums (creating the area for debate, ultimately bringing it together into a cohesive list)... Very informative, and I’ve come away learning stuff that I never knew before...keep up the great work.
