Nirvana for this music over

In almost every case, I am ONLY disappointed when the interview ends. It's like the old music appreciation class, but on steroids, and no exams/papers!

A must listen for any music lover!

At first listen you'll notice this is no "ordinary" music podcast. Host Mark Linsenmayer probes deeply into the psyche of musicians and unveils the magic behind their craft. From session players to video game composers, NEM explores the inner workings of their abilities as told by the musicians themselves with thoughtful analysis by Mark which compels the listener to think outside their musical comfort zone. The fact that Mark has a psychology background only enriches the inquisitive nature of the program and does a great job at examining the theory & technology behind their works of art.

An insightful and fun interviewer

Mark is incredibly thorough and asks interesting questions. As a rare combination of musician and philosopher he was the perfect person to ask questions about my music. It was fun to talk with him and a privilege to be part of his list of amazing artists. Great podcasts!
