My Dad Loves it!

I love how they can take a Janelle Monae song to a Michael Jackson song to a muddy waters song. That blew my mind, pretty much every episode has one good mind blown moment. And the Lizzo episode changed my life. Also my dad has been a deep music lover for decades and this podcast has started so many conversations for us.

Production value can leave a little to be desired at times, but these guys know their stuff and do a great job of breaking things down.

Great pod but please try to limit the use of the word “literally”. It’s worse than “um” and literally makes your points less impactful. For example, remove it from my previous sentence.
