Chris is a great guitarist and host. He doesn’t talk over his guests unlike other hosts.
Really enjoy the interviews and the occasional political commentary. The political opinions of a Californian are always hilarious.
Forget That He’s a Rock Star🤘
I’ve listened to several podcasts on songwriting. This is my favorite. When I’m listening to Walking The Floor with Chris Shiflett, I feel like I’m hanging out with a childhood friend-unassuming and humble. With a knack for getting the best experiences and stories out of the writer, I don’t feel like I’m listening to one of the great rock and roll guitarists of the last 20 years. And as a longtime songwriter, I’m here to be inspired and hear what really got the writer to where he or she is and what inspires them. To that end, the biggest surprise of the podcast for me has been that Chris loves the process, and interviews so many singer/songwriters off the beaten path of what you might expect from a rock guitarist in an enormously popular rock band. I look forward to every new podcast🤘
