My absolute favorite podcast
This podcast has been such an inspiration. There are so many great musicians and incredibly interesting music out there. Whenever I’m in a musical slump, I listen to an interview and am instantly motivated to push through. Thank you Jeremiah for sharing these stories. I really hope there’s more in the future.
this way to the future
this is a fantastic series of interviews and an open door to all things new and musical in a world so easily overlooked by folks chained to their spotify or pandora channels. big ups to jeremiah for digging deep into the pool of creativity that is illustrated here and for asking the right questions regardless of persona on display. so good!
Essential music podcast for the NYC downtown scene
Jeremiah's interview style and subjects are the perfect fix that I need. This is the essential podcast for the downtown New York City avant-garde jazz scene. Even if I don't know the artist already, I end up being thoroughly amused and entertained. File this under John Zorn adjacent. A+
