Candid interviews.

I e enjoyed listening to a couple of these. Specifically the Lang and Coleman ones. Not because they are my favorite drummers. But because they seemed to be very upfront and honest in answering the question presented. They kept it very real in relationship to their real world experienced. Well done.
