First podcast

Become an instant fan listening to the Joe Russo podcast. Going through the past guest has more super stoked to hear. It’s so laidback and you can hear the connection with his guest.

Krasno is connect!!! So it’s real talk.

My favorite part about this podcast is that Krasno is a very loved and respected musican and producer. He’s played with a lot of different groups and musical situations over the years. The guest he has on are people he’s worked with and are people he’s friends with. Krasno is connected. So it’s real talk. Most of these artist wouldn’t talk like this to another person interviewing them. But Krasno is on the inside so it’s a trust exchange. I love it. These are some of my favorite artists and Krasno is one of my favorite musician. Real Talk!!!
