Great podcast

Enjoying this podcast from Dave and UTR media. As someone who has donated to several Kickstarter campaigns, it is interesting to hear how the money is spent to try and complete a project and you get to see why so many end up taking longer than the artist originally thought

Music for your ears!

Another great podcast by UTR Media! Thankful for the music that they introduce me to. Always a new discovery with every episode. I find it interesting learning about how a album is made!

Always Building the Anticipation

This podcast is a documentary of the process of creating a Rich Mullins tribute album on a meager budget. At first glance, that might seem rather uninteresting, especially if you have never heard of Rich Mullins. But if you enjoy the other media from UTR Media, or even just a good story, you’re in the right place.

I personally have never understood who Rich Mullins was until listening to this podcast, and whereas I began listening half-heartedly I now am eager with anticipation for this album to come out. Well done telling the story, Dave!

P.S. I absolutely love “Robot A.P.!!”
