Not a review, more praise

Jeremy is an encyclopedia of music and connections, and he uses that knowledge to create great dialogue with the musicians that have inspired him. Even when I don’t know who the guest is, I listen, learn and gain something. The radio hour is also a great way to find curated new music.

Awesome

Wonderful long form interviews, great questions, and very diverse guests in a myriad of creative mediums. Well done, Jeremy!

Rarely this stoked

Almost as excited about stumbling upon this podcast as I was to stumble upon Touché Amore.
Great insights, tons of positivity, and interesting points of view on the history, present, and future of the scene.
