So cool behind the scenes!

I love that this podcast goes in depth into how artists write their songs! And even though I don’t listen to every artist that has an episode in this podcast I think that is actually a good thing because it means the host is picking a wide spectrum of artists and music genres to work with! I have discovered many new songs from artistsI already knew and loved and ones that I just discovered. I love this podcast! Keep up the great work!

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.
