I’m glad someone decided to make a podcast solely dedicated to pedal steel. There’s not exactly a surplus of interviews out there of some of these older, or even newer, steel players. I’ve really enjoyed the episodes I’ve listened to so far
The one show I love listening when on the road.
This is a great show to listen to, with great content and lots of information if you’re into the Pedal Steel Guitar world. I love it and enjoy it ever since I discovered the show. Keep them coming, Bryan.

Recently purchased my first pedal steel ... I wanted to get a good foundation, so I started listening to all the pros on the Pedal Steel Podcast discussing their philosphy and tactics ... It has been a perfect for getting me into the circle and beginning my path.
