Fantastic Discussions about Amazing Albums

Ryan does a fantastic job at choosing important albums from a wide range of artists. He is knowledge, charismatic, and I find this podcast to be one of my very favorites :).
I highly recommend it.

Love the diversity!

The Broken Record Player Podcast, and its host Ryan, really takes apart these albums! I love how you can tell this guy loves each of these albums, and he has a really ecclectic music taste! Black Metal, Jazz, Hip Hop, Art Rock, etc, it's all covered here in these albums. I love the idea of picking a great album that both the host and the guest(s) love and then discussing it. Makes for great conversations with a purpose. Keep it up!
