Amazing Podcast!

I absolutely love this podcast! As a musician, and a piano technician, this podcast merged my two loves in such a fabulous way. Music talk and piano talk and it is just amazing. Please keep this going!!

A+ content

This is an excellent podcast, with a roster of guests you might not always expect from Steinway & Sons! Some big names (Billy Joel, Bill Murray, Regina Spektor) and some lesser-known, across all creative disciplines, and all with interesting perspectives on their craft. The host is particularly good at drawing fresh insight from each guest.
