David Jandl ,

Excellent review of Rolling Stones top 500 albums all time with comedy too!!!

I’ve been listening to this The 500 podcast for the past 3 years+ now. I caught up on all the podcasts from 500 down to 332. Josh and his crew make this podcast fun with great comedic, music, TV and movie stars. Josh brings the unique perspective with comedy and his knowledge of music, along with his guest stars (mostly from the comedy arena), he makes us laugh, cry, have fun, and has great guest-stars each week. His hard-hitting questions to his guests are tough but fun. You should definitely listen to this podcast. I look forward to the next 7 years of this podcast. Hope to have some of the music artists, politicians, actors when we get into the low 200s and how they influenced their lives. As a music lover for nearly 45+ years (51 now) I know how power laughter, curiosity and music are to the human experience. This show encapsulates it all!

Love this show

Big music fan and I love the way this show is framed. The fact that JAM digs into many albums he’s unfamiliar with makes it so interesting. Learning in real time is quite a challenge and he does it well. I find myself even listening to some of these albums that I truly despise. Many thanks Josh. Hope you can keep it up.

Slipping??

Last few recent podcasts with big guests (!!) are interesting, but have listened to two: David Duchovny and Stop Making Sense (forgot guest) where virtually no music from album was played. Confused, thought that was 50% of the show, guest interview being the other 50%. Also confused by more recent shows where guest has never listened to album, like when you had the Young Bull Shane G (shoutout Shane) on. But y’all listen to Jerry Harrison, 1 of best 500 shows ever.
