Love this podcast!

Ever since discovering this podcast, I have been binging my way through many of these episodes. I absolutely love the discussion and a little hints, tips and tricks one can apply when listening to were experiencing a song in a new way.

I used to have discussions about songs so many of these with my father however, sadly we no longer live near each other in our conversations that become less frequent overtime. This podcast has scratch the itch for me to be able to have a discussion around music that I love.

It also inspired me to get back into playing music and have recently purchased an electronic drum set as a result of the exuberant enthusiasm evident in this podcast

Basically perfect

Kirk’s tone, the clarity of his analysis, the breadth of his knowledge: just great.

really good

i'm not rly a music guy but have been blown away by the few episodes i've heard. really enjoying the sheer musical knowledge and super clean editing + explanations. i like the way this show pushes me to listen to little details of the music i generally struggle to notice or name all at once. really nice listen!
