21: 'People Don't Talk About Relationships Enough', with guest Dan Cox
For years, Dan Cox cultivated a massive following of passionate fans for his blog, Pup Fresh. Between himself and his partner Willy, Pup Fresh created a spot for themselves in the scene without invitation. They use their following to spread their opinions about controversial topics in the scene. That seemed to wear Dan out to the point that he’s separated himself from the brand for his sake and the blog’s. Now he spends way too much money on vinyl.

Initially listened for Jacob's interview with Ben of YMAEWK...quickly discovered other gems in this podcast's catalog. Almost every show offers a rare look inside the music industry which is something fans don't always get to see. Crazy how many good stories Jacob is able to pull out of his guests. By far my favorite podcast of its kind
Always looking to add to my never-ending list of podcasts & VBR is a great addition. Music industry, music news, and a little bit of general conversation makes for a great podcast.
informative, personable, and essential
eschewing the notion of a "boys' club" podcast, JT brings on myriad guests in different parts of the scene with diverse backgrounds and senses of humor. well recommended
