Interesting convos

Joe does a great job picking the brains of songwriters and musicians. I find myself not only being entertained by the stories and anecdotes these artist’s tell about being on the road and in the studio, but also gleaning little tidbits of wisdom to inject into my own music career. One of my fave pods. Highly recommend.

Great conversations

Thanks Joe for bringing music to us during the pandemic.

Great Listen

A who’s who of people interviewed I would want to hear from in any context. But Joe’s interview style and “insider knowledge” make for great interviews from even the artists with whom I wasn’t previously familiar.
