My personal Review

Learn something new on every episode, this is like the music business cheat code literally lol

5 star podcast / education

There’s always been a empty niche for the Behind the scene education of the music industry.. Sam & Jordan have filled this slot beautifully with in-depth conversations with a wide range of guests. Guests who hardly interview elsewhere at that!

Glad I’ve subscribed, and will continue to soak up these gems

Brilliant

I’m a talent manager and this podcast is pretty much a crash course on all the things I need to be doing to break my talent. Love Sam and Jordan. This is a must listen for anyone in the entertainment industry.
