Second Best only to Song Exploder

Fantastic music podcast with bite sized episodes and unique live performances. Was very pleasantly surprised to hear the Waxahatchee episode.

Awesome podcast - with a suggestion

The podcast guests that are interviewed as well as the content of the questions and the great music these guests share with the audience are top-notch. The only suggestion I have is that Raina back-off on identifying herself every few minutes of her interviews. Not sure if she’s not aware of how frequently she’s doing it or if it’s a conscious effort to insert herself in the framework that is supposed to be the artist’s but either way, it’s annoying. Otherwise, an awesome podcast! Thank you to Kallao and Raina for a great podcast of great music!
