Can I give it 10 stars?

Doc does some of the best interviews with amazing people! There's music he plays that turns you on to bands you may never have listened to before! I've became a huge fan of a couple of bands that have sponsored this show {Royalty Kult} He keeps it real while sharing life experiences, making this podcast one that hits home, makes you think, and is hands down one of the best music related podcasts I've ever heard! If you're reading this, you should go listen to what he has to say!! You won't regret it!!

Wish it was all about the music

I’ve been listening on and off for a while now and love hearing guests from the nj hardcore scene as well as guests from current bands, but he has one of the worst monologues I ever heard. It’s kind of like someone who never watched football give a take on the Super Bowl. When he talks about politics it’s cringeworthy. He seems to sneak in race whenever he can. It’s obvious he doesn’t do any sort of homework, just reads what’s on his Twitter feed and bases his opinion off of that. When he isn’t talking about politics or pop culture he goes into mental health and how he suffers from anxiety and depression. It’s kind of strange acting like a know it all and judgemental to a poor me kind of flow. I’ll give it two stars for having some killer guests like ant from etown and fat pat from ffaa. The best music podcasts out there that have the most followers talk just about the music and only the music. If people listen to podcasts to escape the news or want to get a really engaging experience, I suggest skipping this podcast.

Two Thumbs Up

Doc is the dude! He’s got jokes and good interviews along with interesting guests. I dig it!
