This is my favorite podcast ever!

This is such a great compendium to the live album! Finding out it was only 4 episodes was the worst thing to happen In 2020!

Seriously Shed Tears

Under The Pressure episode was the coolest twenty minutes of podcasting this year. It honestly made me so thrilled to remember the times experiencing that song live. Incredible.

It’s also sad that we have gone this long with no live music. But wow. The next time I’m at a show my head may explode when hearing that drum beat. The moment is going to be f-ing magic.
