Great informational content

If you like alternative music (whatever you gunna call your fav genre), great informational content from inside the music business, inside the head of band leaders, how to handle everything in the business, plus so much more

Awesome Show

You can tell Finn knows his stuff. His guests provide relevant and interesting information and are super knowledgable. I haven't heard an episode that I dislike and I can’t believe this content is free. This show is a must listen.

Most Informative Podcast ever!

I love tuning in to learn what Finn and his guests have to talk about. I feel like I gain so much knowledge that it encourages me to do better in my life and projects. If you have ever wanted to get in depth with how famous and successful people have made it from the bottom, then you need to listen in and prepare to take notes!
