Future obsession

Michael and Dan really killed it with this show. I already found myself looking up the artists. There’s definitely something for everyone with this show!

Promising, funny, like two old friends

Although Daniel and Michael are just getting started, the production value, musical taste, and banter are polished enough to make you think they’ve been doing this for years. I’ve discovered a few new artists through this podcast. Listening to these guys is like reconnecting with two old friends.

Great Podcast, Great Music!

The title of this podcast really does say it all, as the music you'll hear will become your new obsession if you're anything like me. It's fascinating to get a peek behind the creative process for such talented musicians, and I really enjoy learning about new artists and music styles that I hadn't heard before. One of my new go-to podcasts!
