Know MY Gear!

Been watching Phil on YouTube for a bit so hitting up the podcast just made sense. A great feel of community, and no episode goes by where I don’t learn something, big or small. Just a great thing to listen to while driving or even doing tech work on my guitars. Love it!

Phil motivates me

Phil’s Podcast is so good my wife likes to tune in with me. I’ve learned a lot and no longer feel guilty about all the gear I buy.

Love it, but friendly criticism

I enjoy this podcast, and I doubt this will reach Phil, but please stop smacking after a drink it’s very very annoying!
