Customer Reviews

This show is excellent

This podcast is excellent. I devour Music podcasts and this is one of my fav. Great talk with smart reporters, great opinions, smart commentary. Especially love the year end episodes. All the bad reviews are just haters. Micah is excellent and The Ringer is excellent.

Gifted heightening ,

Disappointing and Misleading

I was hopeful this would be a podcast that would help me discover new music and different Genres that I don’t hear in every single medium. However this is just a boring discussion of rap by two WASPY sounding guys probably from Boston.

The ringer only has good podcasts when Bill Simmons or Ryen Russilo or involved. No one else on this staff seems to have any talent to broadcast or the ability to create a unique opinion.

Will continue to listen to Bill and Ryen.

Curate My Life

Every episode is a focused meditation on music appreciation. It’s always giving music a chance to breathe without feeling rushed. The smaller parts are covered by the guests and Micah is an amazing curator. Love it!
