Proud of these guys!!

I’ve known Nate since he was 5 years old. This new podcast with him and the second half of Sleeping Lion, Noah is really fun to listen to. The fact that it is not scripted makes it feel really relaxed and comfortable, like just a bunch of friends hanging around chatting. Refreshing and interesting content. Way to go guys!!

I love the way the they are able to connect with each artist; and I always feel like I'm learning something unique about the music industry!!
