More episodes please!

Love the concept, format, and style — I wasn’t expecting it to be so genuinely funny but also respectful of the artists/subjects it covers. I know it’s probably hard to find time to record but I would love this to become a more regular podcast because because I’ve already listened to all the episodes multiple times and I want more!

Interesting podcast; Drop fake laughter

Found this today. So far, it appears to be an interesting Podcast. Just two things I'd wish for: 1- Less profanity; and 2- DROP THE FAKE LAUGHTER... Loved your first episode (minus the "f-bombs").

Love these dudes!

Unlike the artists about which they talk, these guys keep turning in hit after hit in the form of great episodes!
