SO GOOD!

Perfect balance of tips, inspiration, and entertainment.

m.c.squared.music ,

Exceptional quality - broad value

I checked out this podcast expecting some nerdy deep dives into audio production, and there is plenty of that. But what I didn’t expect and am currently floored by is the depth of these conversations - Eyal Levi is a brilliant interviewer with a deep knowledge of the industry as well as the completely artistic side of the business, and he brings out the absolute best from the star-studded lineup of guests. Listen now - there is no bad episode.
