I’m a huge fan of local Iowa music, but don’t always get to make it to the shows to experience it. Love that Jordan is diving deep with amazing musicians, so I can learn more about them, hear their music, and feel like I’m there with them. Cool concept for a podcast and can’t wait to see what he does next! (And special shout-out to the DMMC for spotlighting local musicians in this fun way!)
