    Ep. 44: Singer Songwriter Returns From 5 Year Hiatus

    Sarah Goode is a singer songwriter performing under the moniker SARRA. Her self-titled debut album smolders with a sublime emotionality that veers precariously on the border of bliss and abject darkness. The album's strongly feminine indie-pop was inspired by a soulful victory over intense personal tumultuousness.

Great Podcast in an Innovative Niche

Have known Spenser for a while personally and he is a great guy all around. This podcast is a reflection of his giving personality, and he his doing an amazing service in the musical community. My personal favorite is the episode with Noel Johnston. So many gems in that one.

Fresh and Accessible

This podcast offers a fresh perspective and fuses money and music talk in a really accessible way. Great production value and a wide variety of interesting guests!

YES! It's a bout time we had these converstaions!

I LOVE that Spenser is challenging the old script that says musicians are either rich and famous or starving. This conversation is timely, and so important. It's fantastic to have someone we (pro musicians) can trust, who understands first hand what sort of struggles we face. And to have all of this great info in one place is just phenomenal. Thanks, Spenser! You rock!
