So many great talks
One of a kind podcast focusing on people that grind it out to make the best things out there. Listen, learn and enjoy. Thanks for putting these podcasts together and for having us on among these amazing folks. You’re the best, Delray!
Was literally just looking on their website
Dean is the man!
Dean is living the Dream!
Dean is a really great guy to listen to on all of his podcasts. I love the eclectic taste that he introduces people to or allows them to revisit. I heard about Dean’s podcast “let there be talk” on Marc Maron’s podcast which eventually led me to following him on his other ventures of “The Grail” & “ Dark Fonzie”. These are all just great releases from the daily grind and gives you the ability to reminisce or learn about other really cool scenes that can get you juiced again.
Thanks for lighting the flame Dean!
