A podcast that is a constant source of inspiration

I play guitar and I love to play. Having said that I commute an hour and fifteen minutes to work six days a week and it gets very hard to keep motivated or even inspired to play. This podcast, your podcast gives me that kick in the arse that I need to keep going and for fun I always answer the three questions that you ask tour guests at the tail end of your show. It’s great to hear how genuine and sincere and real your guests are (they’re only human after all). Keep up the great work Craig!!!!! I consider your podcast a gift
