Matty McConaughey ,

All right all right

Next time I go for a drive, I would have this podcast cued up inside.

That way- I could listen to the podcast... AND drive a Lincoln

Kittiexxrawr ,

Just plain awful.

I don’t know what I hate more! Your podcast or your teaching. You sound very pretentious.

mjprudence ,

More please!

You know something is very good when you want more and hate for it to end. So Dramatic is engaging, entertaining and informative in such a creative way. If you are curious about unique artists, their drama, and what makes them tick, this podcast is a complete joy ride.
