I love this podcast! I often get tired of the same narrator, and listening to the artists tell their own stories is so interesting and the different genres is wonderful too. Keep doing what you’re doing! Thank you!

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.

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.

So inspiring. This podcast could change lives

This podcast is not that good. Says a lot of bologna.
derrikdavid via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/22
But this podcast is beautifully designed and executed. I’m not sure that the producers see pop music as an industrial commodity, but that’s my takeaway nonetheless. Very entertaining!
Mickeyguitarwes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/22
This podcast is so good that I managed to survive 24 minutes being willingly rickrolled. Most of the episodes have an “E” rating, but I don’t know any of those songs 😅 I love What’s This? in it ❤️💀🎄 PS: Thanks for the tip on only watching the original and 2018 Halloween movies 😁

Just listened to this podcast for the first time. Arooj Aftab episode. Brilliant.
ahahsjjdm via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/05/22
This is by far my favorite podcast. Definitely don’t love all of the songs selected but getting to hear the artist talk through their processes and thoughts is so fun to listen to. If you like music at all, you will love this.

I've always wanted to get into making music, but never understood enough about the process. This podcast is a dream come true. Truly inspiring. Thank you.Read full review »

This podcast is brilliant. I found Rishikesh through the West Wing Weekly podcast, and I absolutely love his style. Not every song is my cuppa tea, but hearing the artists talk about the origins of their music always help me see their music “in color”, rather than in black and white. Bite-size...Read full review »

It’s a very inspiring and emotional podcast with very ‘special’ guests. All song-storys are interesting and nice told. Love it!
Green_n via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 03/25/22
I love this podcast more than any other. I am constantly recommending it to other people, bordering evangelism! As a musician/music lover, it fills every craving I hope to know about the songs it covers. As a creator, it opens up the creative process and makes me think of my work in so many new...Read full review »

What a great podcast. Love the Danny Elfman episode. Song Exploder is on another level of care and production. I can listen to the episodes of songs I love over and over again. Great job
JayJay in LA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/22
… but love it top to bottom. I just heard the Cheap Trick episode and I was so praying you were going to break construct at the end and try to hit the post like a 70s FM jock when introducing the song (with the weather and time, of course).
Karlos Littos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/22
Best music podcast!
Steh#1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/22
This kind of behind the scenes, how it’s made, method behind the madness stuff is awesome! Some songs I’ve never heard of and others I’ve been listening to for years all highlighted brilliantly and given more depth and texture here. Keep it up!
Tyler Durden 99 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/22
I normally don’t like interview-based podcasts since they are often poorly structured and executed. This is a stellar exception. Each episode is so carefully built upon the insights given by the artist that you really feel like you are getting a unique perspective on its creative process. Truly...Read full review »

This is a one-of-a-kind podcast that has made me appreciate the origin of songs. It is so interesting to learn the origin of stories from the artist's point of view. I appreciate you, and I want you to know that I am always looking forward to listening to new episodes✨😊Read full review »

Cela fait beaucoup de bien d’entendre des choses intelligentes quand on parle musique et cinéma. C’est rare. Merci.

Best podcast ever made about how music is made

Please stop mentioning your "new" podcast Partners. Or actually make new episodes of it. Thanks.Read full review »

I enjoy this podcast so much. There is such a wide array of music and musicians. I even enjoy learning about the stories behind songs that don’t speak to my musical interests or preferences. Hrishikesh Hirway creates such wonderful connections with the musicians. I think his program is so...Read full review »

Hrishikesh is a beautiful soul. His passion for music, coupled with the dive into musical creativity and production, makes for a wonderful listening experience. I am filled with awe and inspiration after every episode.
ProfessionalCritic1243 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/21
I love this podcast, I’m obsessed with it. I was wondering if maybe you could do another Billie eilish on about her new song happier than ever.
freak for fun via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/14/21
This show offers something unique in the music podcast genre. Hirway does an amazing job of allowing the voices of the musicians to come through in an intimate and revealing way as they describe their creative processes.
Klm7875 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/14/21
Found it over the Ted talk. Which i loved. And then listened to Lennon - God episode. Even more impressed now. Strongly suggested!!!
ballesterer via Apple Podcasts · Austria · 10/14/21
Great podcast! I would like to hear about Bahamas and “Lost in the light”
Merriemichelle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/21
I’m really digging this podcast.
ValDali_ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/21
What’s going on here? Really enjoyed these podcasts but they’re all so sad now: family violence, suicide, abuse, addiction, heartache…every week. I get it that they all can’t be happy, but when was the las time this podcast DIDN'T start with a warning?!Read full review »

I really enjoy this podcast! It has been so fun to learn about some of my favorite artists and the songs they have written. I would love to hear more! Keep it up!
WSEMUSIC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/21
I love this podcast so much! The artists are free to relate their inspirations and styles without any extra talk from a host. For runners, this is an incredible podcast to listen to on any distance run—music and thoughtful conversation. Also learning about artists with whom I was unfamiliar....Read full review »

Used to be about real awesome seasoned hits Now it’s become an avenue for artists to promote music and nothing else. Should’ve never taken all that corporate money
bravoCALI via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/26/21
Truly brings a new appreciation to the music we so often take for granted. I also love the host and how he takes care to choose songs from ALL genres/vibes/artists. No matter what you’re into, you WILL find a song you love on this podcast. Please don’t ever stop making this! It brings me endless...Read full review »

As a novice, this podcast gave me a framework to understand music I’ve been listening to for a long time, a new way to hear and appreciate. I particularly loved Alaska with Maggie Rogers. Any chance you could interview Moving Mountains by ANIMA! ?‽
Mlynndahle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/18/21
Streaming these vibrations into the brain is an endless source of creativity and inspiration. Don’t pass go, just subscribe to this and listen to every episode.
Ihearttwat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/21
So cool to hear some of my favorite artists explain their songwriting process.
jennyyy285 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/21
Hai
I really like this podcast because it kinda looks into the songwriter’s life and the inspiration for the song. Do you think you could do the song Sugar Crash?
gnauck via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/21
I have read a ton of hard to find A.Mann interviews online,once and a while included in some same interviews also her husband. Every single answer or response to each question will always lead probably anywhere you can’t ever expect it to and it’s so very funny poignant and your always left with...Read full review »

Each episode is done so well and even when I’m not that into the artist/genre/song, I still find myself enjoying every bit of it and finding a new appreciation.
