Phenomenal classical guitar podcast

I have difficulty picking a favorite, but this podcast along with the Tonebase Classical Guitar Podcast are my absolute favorites. This show gets phenomenal guests, and the host/interviewer is super great as well.

Great information

Simon’s podcasts are filled with amazing information. He goes into great detail at times, but keeps it interesting with stories and great examples. I’m really enjoying listening to him

Good guests, too many commercials

Pretty good but you have to skip the first ten minutes of each episode to get past the promotional material about the website and all these events that took place five years ago.
Once you get past that there are some good guests. The host's sincerity makes up for his so-so interview skills. You can tell he really cares about the classical guitar.
