Love this store and podcast
Thank you for making this available on Apple podcasts. Everyone at Shangri-La is awesome. This podcast is great, sounds amazing and is so informative. Love the music guests. Always opens my eyes to new artists. Excellent job.
Congratulations on a terrific maiden voyage into the podcast world! The conversation was interesting, the sound quality was quite stellar, and the musical guest was my favorite on the planet! (Ok...
