The Podcast All Classical Musicians Need

This podcast is a conversation about life in the classical world in beyond that all musicians, especially young musicians, NEED to listen to. It's such an open and honest dialogue about topics that have never been talked about before but are so imperrative!

Awesome!

I love listening to guys. I like that the podcast is mostly comedy, and then you drop random knowledge bombs throughout about music.
