Learned a lot from one of my new favorite artists! Thanks for this podcast
This podcast is brilliant! I love the idea of interviewing celebrities and not hammering them about their latest film or album and talking to them like a real human being. It's incredibly refreshing to get to know your favorite artists in a non-invasive manner.
Since I began to listening it I knew I was going to like it! You guys should do more podcasts about Bastille and Coldplay
