I love The Lumineers so much and can’t believe how they made all their music so great! This podcast is so interesting and helps you to learn more about your favorite artists. I love that in this podcast you can listen to how they make their stuff and what techniques they have to make it so well.

A long-running favorite
This podcast is one of a half-dozen where I have listened to every episode. It continues to delight. Sometimes I learn more about an artist I love, and other times I discover new artists to explore more deeply. I love how it almost always focuses around a single song. It’s a great length for a walk.
