I learned so much!

I’m not an opera person at all but it was so interesting to listen to the stories presented. Also the ASMR of cocktail making on a podcast is a delight! Such a creative and different concept!!

I Don’t Even LIKE Opera and I’m Hooked!

Opera to me is a lot like golf: expensive and boring and it takes way too much time to wrap things up. I’ve gone to a few shows and listened to recordings of the greats, and I just didn’t get the intrigue. But, I’m a huge RENT fan and knew it was based on Puccini’s La Boheme, so when I stumbled upon the MM’s first episode covering that opera I gave it a listen, thinking that maybe it was a Cliff’s Notes version.

It was so good that I listened to it a second time to catch what I’d missed in the first go-round. And I haven’t missed an episode since. Andy Anderson does a great job of weaving the story of the opera with the history behind it, as well as how it relates to the present day. I enjoy his sense of humor and the “fun facts” he sprinkles into the podcasts. And a “signature drink” for each podcast? Genius! The “Trouble in Paradise” from episode 2 has become a Friday night staple in our house.

I can’t believe that I actually look forward to learning more about opera each week, but the podcast is truly that entertaining. I give the Mischievous Maestro a standing ovation! Tune in, you won’t be disappointed!
