The Real Fielding Fowler ,

Spike Approved!

With faces for radio, and voices for podcasts, Nate and John bring an awkward enthusiasm for Deep Purple and the extended Purple family. Their banter is genuine, and even when it goes off-topic, it remains entertaining and an easy listen. I will definitely remain a patron, at least until the pandemic ends and the strip clubs re-open. Raise your glass of coffee milk, cheers to Deep Purple and the Deep Purple Podcast! This review is approved by Spike the Rock Cat.

TBPC ,

Great content... even better atmosphere!

They talk to each other, yet somehow I always feel part of conversation! Love learning more about DP (and the family of bands) but it’s the fun atmosphere that draws you in.

BreisHeim ,

Heeere’s Johnny and Nate!

These guys are like the Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon of the podcast world, and I mean that as a great compliment.
Very entertaining show!
