Hands down favorite podcast…

Great selection of guests (Peter Case and Dave Alvin!!) and great interview style; relaxed, conversational and passionate about the music. I listen to every episode regardless of guest.

Give it listen

Great podcast! Mostly centered around music, obviously. But also branches into other areas. Episodes on boxing are some of my favorites. Guest line up is varied but is heavy on the Americana side. The scope is broad. Country, rock, singer/songwriter, r&b… I’ve found artist here that I never would have heard of anywhere else.
And maybe, one day, we will get an interview with Dave!

Excellent!

This is easily one of the best podcasts available! Chris chooses a great array of guests and every episode is interesting, even when you don’t know the person being interviewed. He asks engaging questions and always lets his guest speak, never talking over them.
