  • Love it!

    I have loved the Pumkpins since I discovered them over 25 years ago when I was in school in Ireland and trying to figure out life. I recently stumbled across this podcast and I really enjoy it. It is sometimes very nostalgic to revisit some of this music, but I love it. Great podcast, great hosts. Thanks for doing this for all us pumpkins fans out there.

  • Excellent podcast!!!

    The Smashing Pumpkins fan community is often a dangerous and often despairing place to visit due to its tendency to being vitriolic and unaccepting of any Pumpkins material past 1993. So, I was supremely surprised with the scope and depth of this podcast whose hosts not only obviously love the band but the overall journey of the entire catalog. The episode devoted to “Monuments…” proved this point explicitly with their song by song review of the album that showcased their listening experiences a... more
