Podcasts are like hanging out with people you wish you knew

and my god do I wish I knew LG. I wish I could run into her all the time and have her talk my ear off. I haven't listened to the interview episodes yet, but the early ones about her band and music are incredibly entertaining - great stories, good advice and her delivery is dynamic, direct and so fun.

Great Insight & Interviews

LG is a thoughtful interviewer and brings an honest & frank voice to the pod-o-verse. It’s refreshing to hear from powerful women in the music industry. Yeehaw!
