My Favorite Podcast

I love these guys and could listen to them all day talking about music, gear, and life. I have recently stopped listening to all of the negative news and true crime podcasts around in favor of this extremely positive, informative, and beneficial podcast instead. I am a enthusiastic and mediocre mandolin/octave mandolin player. Really diverse and solid lessons at Mandolin Secrets also. Keep up the good work Magnus and Hayes! Thanks for spreading joy and music. 🤩🎶
