A great podcast for the apocalypse.

I’ve been sheltering in place for *weeks* now with one of the hosts of The Ringing Ear (as well as three children). It is a rare thing for me to have a moment to myself. Yet, whenever I do, the first thing I listen to is the latest episode of The Ear. If that isn’t a glowing recommendation, I don’t know what is.

Conversations about music are the absolute best

Jeff and Jobe, two former record store clerks, release fun conversations about a variety of musical topics, providing listeners with their top 3 tunes related to those subjects. They never claim to be experts, and the songs selections are subjective. I love that they encourage listeners to engage with the podcast by posting conversation starters on their social media accounts. Top notch music chats!

Good stuff

Great conversations about music. I've discuvered some good new stuff and been reminded of old favorites listening to this. Even when I disagree with one of both of them, which is a couple times an episode, I still enjoy listening.
