Nice.

Loved the blink-182 podcast and the yeezy one. Haven’t listened to any others. But would love to hear some stuff about some other 2003-2010 rap albums or some older offspring albums done. And it’s a stretch cuz you might not be into this type of music but if you did a country one I’d be floored. Thanks!!

One of my favorites.

One of my favorite music podcasts. We have very similar taste. Thanks David

This music had and continues to have such a profound impact in my life but it’s pretty niche so I’ve never heard someone else analyze and feel so much from this sub genre. I’ve found myself in a difficult situation and this music has been like an anchor and it’s so comforting to identify with someone like that. I’m so glad I found this podcast, thank you.
