"I was introduced to this cast approx 6 months ago and I have downloaded so many of the back episodes. Great production, and great music. It has opened my eyes to so many artists I never would have heard otherwise!"

"Incredibly well done! My favorites are the ones about the songs I already knew. It's less fun to listen to if you don't already know the songs, but those episodes are good for introducing you to new music."

"*Amazing* podcast. Go through the feed and download all the episodes of songs that you recognize, you'll experience them in an entirely new light. Unfortunately it's hard to appreciate the episodes with songs that you don't already know, but that doesn't make the podcast any worse. Beautiful idea and wonderfully executed by Hrishi."
