  • The peak of deep dive interview podcasts

    The combination of long form dialogue sessions with influential musicians and expertly curated (and often seldom heard/rare) accompanying tracks is unbeatable. Jason’s sensitive approach undergirded by passionate research drives insightful questions and results in revelatory interviews with many artists who rarely grant interviews. I particularly enjoyed the chats with Jim Lea, Gilbert O’Sullivan and Gerry McAvoy.
