Review after 6 episodes.
The hosts have a genuine rapport which makes the podcast entertaining to listen to, something like pulling up a chair to a group of engaging and knowledgable friends, although serious music lovers would perhaps prefer a format that is less free-form and a bit more substantive.
The running time is appreciably shorter than many podcasts however can limit the show’s ability to organically discuss a given topic and eventually drive down into something more incisive.
It could also perhaps use a stronger overall voice. I’d prefer an impassioned plea of a given album or band each week than a predetermined topic. And I certainly wouldn’t mind it running long one week and shorter another based on the quality of the conversation. Right now, it’s more “music culture” than a pure nuts-and-bolts music podcast.
The podcast is young but whether the direction becomes more refined and structured or more freeform as it marches towards maturity, you’d like to see some continued evolution as it grows.
