A podcast after my own heart

These guys talk 80s music like I like to talk about 80s music. Love all the hosts but Spearsy and Brad are the heart. I saved the Rush episode for the 40th anniversary of Moving Pictures and when I can’t sleep it never fails to help me relax. This is podcast comfort food at its finest.

Horrible since Dailey left

Found it a couple months ago. Listened to first 275 episodes quickly. It was great with spears and Dailey. After Dailey left it’s borderline unlistenable due to the extreme unlikability of the other hosts.
