Spot on with insight, conversation and production
There is so much going on here. First, Ted knows music and his subjects extremely well. The conversations flow naturally, and bring to mind talking with a good friend. The production and flow between conversation and songs is first rate. Bonus: I don't know every artist Ted brings on the show and therefore I have new great music to discover.
Solid Research, Editing, and Connecting
This podcast is so well researched and produced that it pulls you into each artist Ted covers. The episode on Lisa Bastoni is a perfect example. Ted integrates storyline, music lyric and artist interview into a beautiful movie if you will. It's a movie where you imagine the scenes with the edits being so crisp taking from one phase of the artist's journey to the next. Enjoy.
Great interview. The interviewer really gets Marc Cohen to speak from the heart. It's enlightening to understand the true meaning of some of these songs you have listened to but never really understood,....until now.
