more bites (or put them back in)

I found The Brainjo Bites quite helpful in dwhat I am learning. The music is enjoyable; as well!

Oddly wonderful

The target audience of this podcast may be banjo enthusiasts, but I think it might be enjoyable for anyone.

It’s a mix of old time banjo music - perfect for relaxing - and episodes with advice on learning to play. But really, it’s advice on learning in general. The host bring’s a neurologist’s perspective in explaining the why - never just the what - of his learning advice. The explanations themselves aren’t just fascinating, they are also easy to adapt to any learning you might want to do, even if it has nothing to do with music.
