I hope for more in the future.

Big Deuce ,

Excellent. thanks Billy.

I just finished this podcast, this the 1st day of 2024. Insightful, and inspiring. Would love to hear more in the future, but if not, this was a real treat. A fun guide for a fantastic, exquisite album in ATUM. The Smashing Pumpkins are in a league of their own.

Mesmerizing!

I stumbled upon this podcast because I saw a TikTok about it. This is an amazing podcast for those of us who have always wondered what the meaning behind the music is.

For as long as I can remember, my mind has constantly wanted to interpret what I’ve been listening to. This is a really cool idea and I wish more artists did this. I love hearing Billy breaking down the idea behind it, how it came about and giving a story to envision as you listen. I’m only two episodes in and I’m completely hooked! Billy is a musical genius. 🖤
