sex, drugs, rock and ro;; meets classic literature
I have never been a fan of podcasts until now. This is the only podcast I have listened to that I can finish. It's two amazing women talking about music history, classic literature, all while entertaining the listeners with stories of schenanigans and quoting Henry Rollins. It is relatable, has a great message, and dropping an F bomb or two while talking about The Art of War is an artform!
