BrySharpe ,

Great information!

Justin knows his stuff. This podcast is a great balance of affirming the things you’re doing right, challenging bad habits, and also presenting new ways of thinking about your approach. The way info is presented covers lots of perspectives and situations.

kindsounds ,

this podcast is an ad

Nearly every piece of advice, every tip, every concept, has a disclaimer something along the lines of “this wont even make sense until you buy the course” or promising details and explanations and then cutting off saying “thats too much for now, just go get my course”. The best way to review this podcast is said by the author himself: “maybe if your already able to hear every minute detail of every parameter change, then this free podcast is good enough for you, but otherwise go check out my product”

Brian Alexander Music ,

Really insightful

Justin mixes in the craft and the business of music production - the latest episode from 4/19/22 focused on how to build your network and ‘reel’ for example. Extremely relevant topics for us hobbyists, semi pro producers and pro engineers! Can’t recommend this podcast enough.
