Love this show

I love the show. Listened to every episode in one day and have been eagerly been waiting for new episodes each week. I really enjoyed the recent episode on how to write a song. I just wanted to say that I love your song. The lyric style and flow reminds me MGMT which is one of my favorite bands of all time.
