Great Podcast!

Just saw Special C, last weekend and got to meet Michael Prewitt. What a down to earth human being and excellent picker and Singer! Great interview with Michael!

Wonderful Guests, great conversations

This has become one of my favorite podcasts. Daniel's warm interviews with interesting guests are just a pleasure - it feels like you, Daniel, and his guest are three friends getting together and talking over a beer, with one or more of you holding a mandolin! Wonderful mandolin tips from the guests and Daniel.

My Favorite Podcast

This is a great podcast and an amazing resource for the mandolin community. I started listening in January, 2021 to help get through the pandemic, and while it feels like we’re on the other side of that, I’m still listening every week! Daniel does a great job interviewing professional mandolin players from various genres (although bluegrass is certainly the most dominant), as well as mandolin builders, music store owners, and other guests of interest to people like us.

Sometimes I wonder if I could do what Daniel does and the answer is a resounding: “no”. Daniel is the perfect person to host this show because he sincerely cares about and celebrates the wins of anyone and everyone in his community. I’d give 6 stars if I could! -Ben H. in Austin, TX
