Great resource, pretentious host

Love the concept of your podcast, and the genuine service you provide by introducing us to interesting covers we may not have heard before. So, thank you for that.

We could all do without the snobby music reviewer snark, however. It just makes your podcast hard to listen to and reinforces all the worst stereotypes of the music reviewer (perhaps the most useless profession in the history of mankind) as pretentious tool.

Lesiban Coffee shop Mix

The mouth noises. Get a proper mic and or edit out the dry mouth noises. Distracting and disgusting.

I enjoy the historical profiles of the artists from their humble beginnings to their rise to stardom. What annoys me is the slanting of facts to the host's own political leanings. In particular, one episode on Bob Dylan he inserted clips of Orangeman bad speech into a Dylan song. Attempting to demonstrate how prophetic and pertient Dylan lyrics are in today's current climate. A lame attempt by the host to insert his own ideology, skewing of facts related to Dylan, misrepresenting the history and motivations of Dylan's work. At 23, Dylan was rejecting the politician-poet serving the Left, but rather as a sort of independent minstrel. - Ginnsberg "There's no black and white, left and right to me anymore; there's only up and down and down is very close to the ground. I'm trying to go up withouth thinking about anything trivial such as politics." - Dylan if the host was honest he should have insert Lyndon Johnson speech into the song, as Vietnam was Johnson's war. Much of the editorlizing of the host is what you would expect out of a Rolling Stones magazine, liberal slanting, surface level research, myth over facts.

The covers songs selection there's an occuassional gem but overall most of the tracks played are objectivly bad cover versions. Lesiban coffee shop playlist. far too many comtempary covers. Hard to believe these are his picks of best cover songs.

Content vs. Mouth Sounds

Honestly, I really like most of the content. Good breakdown of interesting performers and songs. Hearing the diverse cover songs is quite enjoyable, although at times the host's taste is questionable. The reason I'm rating this so low is because - dear God, the mouth sounds are horrific! I'm not usually a misophone, but there is so much smacking, slapping, and squishing going on that it's difficult to take in one sitting. I don't know if it's dry mouth or something else, but there must be a way to minimize this. Quite a few smacks are between words, so removing those spikes should be easy. The ones embedded inside words…I don't know…maybe a different mic technique or frequent sips of water. I don't mean to be cruel, but as audio is all we have, it's a major consideration.
