It was like Christmas morning and I’m obsessed! I have loved every minute and am hoping for more! Each guest has such a unique story, introduced some amazing perspectives and insights. I love the deep questions and resonate with so much of what is discussed. Andy is so relatable, a great interviewer and conversationalist…not to mention incredible and inspiring musician with an amazing story of his own!
Listen to Cal interview Andy first!
Wow! Initially became a fan of Andy Grammer’s lyrics and music. Then, stumbled into his podcasts, starting with Cal Fussman’s interview of Andy. Highly recommend you start with this one first to fully appreciate Andy. These podcasts have inspired me to do some serious soul searching. Andy either brings out the best in everyone or has the best taste in guest selection or both!
