Always on my playlist

There are only a few podcasts I save up for a long day driving. Song Exploder is one of my favorites. Breaking down music in the words of the artist makes me a better listener.

Get down stay down

In handing the keys to the show to Thao, Hrishi gave his show over to the leader and songwriter of a kickass band and thoughtful interviewer. The original concept of the show was amazing, but this season has breathed new life into that concept and is what made me re-subscribe. Keep up the great work.

Holy crap 5.0 with 3.5 thousands reviews!

This is a Really interesting show that will deepen your love for your favorite artists and expose you to new ones in an interesting way that’s far more intimate than if you had simply heard a new song.
