Unique, inspiring, HUMAN stories from electronic musicians

One of the best music podcasts on the internet! I love gear, but it’s super refreshing to take a break from all the machines and listen to a podcast about electronic music that has NOTHING TO DO WITH GEAR! Instead, it’s all about the people, their personal stories and their music. So inspiring to learn from a wide spectrum of creators, across electronic genres, from those just starting out to established (even famous) artists with decades of experience, all in the same personal format. This one’s something special :)

Insightful about electronic music

This podcast is cool and interviews some interesting electronic music producers. There's not a lot of gear talk, but more about philosophy and art.
