Jared Denen ,

Love this podcast

This made it in to my normal rotation immediately, great guests and a awesome perspective from Mr. Wong.

I cannot get enough of it.

Mophonic ,

Thoughtfully curated

Cory asks the questions I would hope to ever get a chance to ask artist that I could only dream of to speak with. He’s a spark of light and you can feel the artists respond and reflect to his energy. Loved the Susan Tedeschi and Madison Cunningham episodes.

Best podcast in a WONG time!

Everything you could ask for and more in a podcast about and for musicians.
