Disappointing and painful to listen to
I was excited about this podcast. I had a long drive ahead of me so I was going to binge all of Season 1. After episode 2 ended I was done. The narrator has an odd sense of timing-lots long pauses at weird places and it sounds like everything he says is read off of a script. But the worst is the script, it needs major editing. There are anecdotes that seem to end in the middle without finishing, statements presented without any examples. It sounds like a bunch of random sentences cut and pasted into a doc. I love The Band, but this was a painful, sophomoric waste of time.

Why don’t more people talk about them etc. I was hooked on them. I’ve read and listened to everything Band related and this...Read full review »
