The Great Glass Alavator ,

Fascinating and informative

Great show for anyone with even a slight interest in how music is made.

Awesome!!!!

I can’t say enough about this podcast so I won’t even try. If you love music or a musician who knows music this podcast breaks down one song from an artist from initial first lines, collaboration with producers and engineers to band members and other musicians all streamlined in a 20 -30 min package. Well produced and thoughtfully presented.

One of my favorite podcasts

I haven’t found a single podcast quite like this one. It gives such an interesting perspective to music that I love. I definitely gain a new appreciation for the songwriting process and how each artist does it differently. 11/10 would recommend.
