Brilliant!

Funny, sweet, honest, absurd, musical. Super random at first yet as you listen you get to know the wonder that is Mike O’Connell and I ended up bingeing a few as I wanted to know more about the world he’s created. Really well produced too and the songs are great. When’s the next one coming?! Can’t wait

If you’re already familiar with Mike O’Connell’s comic stylings, you’re in luck. If you’re not familiar, you are also in luck! His delivery is distinctly unique and his comedic prose is dynamic. All this AND he is a talented musician, with wicked guitar chops to boot. Do yourself a favor and listen to this podcast, it’s pretty goddamned funny.
