  • Brilliant podcast

    So call to hear about who the influences these amazing musicians. The Rick Rubin interviews are particularly good because of the obvious admiration these musicians have for him.

  • Great at Beginning

    Rick Rubin is awesome, Leah Rose is simple and straightforward, Justin Richmond tries too hard to display his knowledge (which is considerable) and youth, Gladwell is an annoying fanboy. Quality significantly drops when Rubin leaves for his own podcast in 2023.

  • Too many ads

    Used to love this show- most recent episode is less than 30 minutes and less than halfway through half the time elapsed was ads.

  • I appreciate how the interviewer allowed the artist (J. Marr) to finish his thoughts & stories. J. M. reminded me why I became a musician & how much I love music & must have it in my life every fuckin' day. Much respect.
