This is, simply put, one of the greatest podcasts I’ve ever heard. GD fans as well as anyone interested in American music from the 1960s and beyond will rejoice. The story telling is great, the musicians and audiophiles discussing mixes, some nerdy guitar stuff, the businesses that surrounded...Read full review »

This podcast may be one of the most exceptional bodies of research and reporting ever to be done on a musical act. Clear, concise, wildly entertaining and tremendously exciting. For the Grateful Dead fan, this is the absolute mother lode of stories and information. Interviews with the people who...Read full review »

I thought after being a Dead Head for almost 40 years there was little left to learn about my musical heroes. Oh contraire. These episodes are chock full of wonderful new insights into the music, madness, and miracle that was the Grateful Dead. Keep ‘em coming boys!

This is a must listen. The depth of research is superb and the content is not rehashed. It carves a new arc and a delight to listen to. For a long time deadhead, I can’t stop listening.
John B Johnson CEO WDT via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/21
This podcast is truly inspiring. I love the many voices included to create each narrative journey. Not only does it add credence to the idea that The Grateful Dead is the greatest band ever but it also affirms the feelings I have always had about their music: universal, life-changing, timeless....Read full review »

Just OUTSTANDING ! Can’t give enough praise.

I’ve been waiting for the music! Finally a well produced doc series about the f’n Music. I’ve always stirred away from the ones that are basically about the professional level of substance use and the long strange trip life. All fascinating stuff no doubt. I love the music and I love the history...Read full review »

The Grateful Dead have long been known in part for the depth of obsession among us deadheads. This podcast is the culmination of years of developing scholarship on the band, the family, and various cultural intersections. It is primarily told through the lens of a deep track by track dive of each...Read full review »

GDTRFB was played by Eddie Guillan (Rosa Sharon’s husband) on a folk guitar, in the 1940 film “The Grapes of Wrath”.

So very happy when this drops every Thursday. Keep up the great work.
MrBuck240 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/27/21
This podcast is so amazing! I loved the Workingman’s Dead episodes and have been equally impressed with the American Beauty episodes. But I was not prepared to have my mind completely blown by the two Attics of my Life episodes! They were unbelievably fabulous! Thanks for the insight guys! ...Read full review »

With interviews, clips of songs, and deep dives into every nook and cranny of Dead history, this is a super high production sounding and amazing podcast.

You’ve read the books, you’ve got the tapes and the box sets, you’ve watched the documentaries and compiled a list of your favorite Dark Stars, you also need this: unparalleled access to Dead ‘family’ members along with interludes and smart commentary. Each season has something new to...Read full review »

This podcast is so enjoyable to listen to every time. Its really sharp, focussed and the sound is fantastic. Jesse does a great job on each trip and the guests are just perfectly placed and edited.

So many layers to the Dead onion. So much fun! So many rabbit holes! My new favorite podcast.
Sprucenbirch via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/21
I’m incredibly impressed with the production, writing and passion delivered in this podcast. Deadheads bring a unique passion which is not easily satisfied or impressed. The DEADCAST is up for the challenge.
Bay Village Scott via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/21
It’s great. Jarnow is a fabulous narrator.

It’s hard to overstate the quality of this work. Whether you are a musician who loves the Grateful Dead’s music, or a fan, or someone who is interested in the cultural history of that time, there is nothing else out there I’ve found that presents this information in such an entertaining,...Read full review »

Fascinating in-depth analysis of key albums supported by relevant interviews from people who were there. Want an hour breakdown of every song on every album ( yes, I do!) and how they came to be? Or an explanation of the transformation of the band beyond description from primal psychedelia to the...Read full review »

I really like the podcast but the hosts mic is too hot which bothers me as it is a great auditory experience otherwise!! Love

If you’re a Deadhead, if you’re not a Deadhead, if you’re into music, if you’re into history, if you’re into pop culture or backstories .... every episode is packed full of fascinating details. I love when they deconstruct the songs into the various instruments and vocal lines - i hear each of...Read full review »

lodgeone_1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/21
Thought I knew so much about the Grateful Dead till I listened to this podcast. It’s so well done, the stories are great & it’s amazing to have the songs broken down into the various tracks to hear the individual pieces. I’m totally geeking out on this stuff. Thank you boys!

Listening to the shows for the second time. First time was with earbuds while mountain biking in Sonoma County, my home. Love the nerdy details, love re-hearing the music I’ve been listening to for 45 years, love the interviews. Thank you!

Have you got the ol itch? This podcast will get it scratched, I’ll wager.

I discovered the Grateful Dead later in life the most people. I compare the Dead to a hole you’ve fallen into, but instead of climbing out, you want to just dig deeper and deeper. This excellently produced podcast is a shovel that helped me discover the deeper meanings behind the songs on WMD and...Read full review »

The music discussed in the first two seasons is 50 years old, but Jesse demonstrates over and over that there’s still so much to learn about our favorite band.

No gossip, no cliches, just the details of the actual music. Every episode a classic. Not afraid to get into the musical details and does so in an engaging and knowledgeable way. Top notch interviews.
linus420 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/11/20
This series has been such a wonderful insight into the music and the personalities that made it. They do a great job of incorporating the attitudes and vibes of the times and how that translated into the music along with a great historical perspective of their inspirations for these great albums.
