Getting tired of his abilities

Matt, you son of a b*tch, you’ve done it again. I’m not sure how you are so talented with podcasts, or why I keep flocking to the ones you make. I really hate how easy you seem to make it and am quite envious. Good luck with your next podcast which will probably be toothbrushes throughout history and will still somehow be entertaining. I don’t get, but I will absolutely LISTEN NOW.

The 1 American Listener

One of my best friends is from Australia. He got me into Ozzy music like Slim Dusty, The Angels, and Cold Chisel. Cold Chisel has become one of my favorite bands of all time and it’s a shame I’m the only American in existence who knows about them. I loved learning more about their history and how they are perceived in the home country. And I appreciate being noticed as the only American listener!

Rockin' Pod

Finally got an iTunes account to give a well deserved 5 stars to Matt and Sam! Did not know Cold Chisel, and still havent listend to any on my own... but enjoy listening to the great duo that is Matt and Sam. Excited to see the pod evolve as they move from band to band.
