Tune into Joe Budden and his friends. Follow along the crazy adventures of these very random friends.
Release date: 2023-03-22
1. Huge Fan - I’ve loved Joe Budden’s personality since Love and Hiphop ! Definitely unapologetic, and I love that about him. I think Flip is also a great addition and adds to the show when It goes alittle dull. Great work and everyone brings their own jazz to the master piece. Parker … speak up more .
2. Longtime Fan! - Really like addition of Mel and (occasionally) QueenzFlip. I think they do a great job of allowing everyone the space to speak. Joe is Joe. Hate it or love it. He’s consistent with the content and continues to push the conversation. Happy to see the growth of the Pod. Keep going, Joe. Shoutout Ish, Ice, and my favorite “IT’S PARKS”.
3. Females love the JBP - Females love the JBP as well. I've been listening since a little before Roy and Mal and Joe has done nothing but stepped his game up! Top notch! I had Patreon for the break up show then canceled and been here since the Spotify split. Nice to have Mel from time to time. Much love from your female fans in Florida.
4. Thanks Joe B - Wrote several emails to Joe email for topics and tried to be part of the show several times(I didn’t pay) never been heard. Lol. Been watching since the beginning. Before Rory and mal, before ish and ice. The beginning when it was him and a girl. Show came a long way. JOE was the FIRST TO MAKE PODCAST A THING. THE PODCAST APP SAT ON MY IPHONE FOR YEARS. AND WHEN THE SPOTIFY SPLIT. IT WAS EASY TO LISTEN TO FROM THERE. THE UPS THE DOWNS THE HIGHS AND LOW. FUNNY, messy, intellectual, personality, and original thoughts. We been outside. From Chicago to Florida. Both states got yo back JOE!!! Along with the FBI and CIA.
5. Hero turned villain - To watch Joe who used to be able to buck against the system and see the manipulation of the matrix descend into this hive mind and group thinking is actually sad. I was there when he fell victim to the allegations and accusations when Charlemagne used to attack him every week. I decided to do my own research and dismiss those claim for what they were,
" reach" an attack and an attempt to arm him. Now another man is falling victim to the same tactics and Joe claim to have done his research on Andrew but he just spewing mainstream media rhetoric. Frankly I find it all repugnant and I can't in good conscience keep supporting this podcast, more often than not that podcast is simply just entertainment and mind numbing while Andrew uses his platform to lift up men around the world and literally save lives. Ask yourself how many millionaires has Joe made? How many lives has he saved? Even the "part of the show" segment is strictly for paying viewers. No I'll be unplugging from the anesthesia this podcast has become.
It's been real farewell.
6. Over the years - I was a casual listener back in & became a fan in . The show has evolved tremendously & despite the change of co-host they have kept the content raw & hilarious. The audio tho always great is impeccable, especially in the car. I listen to this pod everyday sometimes the same episode over & over. Thank you for being “Outstanding” & making my time & work fly by.
7. Long Live the Podfather - I’ve been with this podcast since the first episode and while I was disappointed in the break up initially, I could hear the beef brewing in those podcast before it came to a head. I thought it would go down after the change, but it’s better than ever now. Ish is a welcomed addition

Legendary Queens rapper-turned show host N.O.R.E. teams up with Miami hip-hop pioneer DJ EFN for a night of boozy conversation and boisterous storytelling. The hosts and guests engage together in fun, light-hearted conversation - looking back at their paths to success, highlighting their lives, friendships, and iconic moments within their career. In this unfiltered series, drinks are flowing and jokes are rolling - take a seat at the table with N.O.R.E & EFN. You Gotta Relax!
Release date: 2023-03-17
1. Entertaining, but that’s About it - The hosts of this program have little to no integrity, and that’s perfectly showcased by the removed Ye interviews. Despite calling Ye a brother and great friend, N.O.R.E. disappeared at the first sign of backlash and did nothing to provide context to the situation. I understand the hosts wanted to protect their personal brand, but that says all you need to know about their character, or lack thereof. Beyond that point, these hosts are incredibly manipulative in the sense that the content of this show revolves around getting high profile figures to drink until intoxication. It should then come as no surprise that the hosts also provoke guests while their inhibitions are down in order to get good “content.” No friend nor brother of mine would ever abandon me in time of need, and if they did, they wouldn’t be worthy of such a title. Feel free to enjoy this show, but just know that these hosts don’t care about their guests or audience—only profit.
2. Podcast in the Business - Not only being one of the most iconic hip hop artist, this show has become my salvation! Every interview has enlighten me to be the best at what I do. These podcasts has opened a new book for me to understand the music industry and to know the business. Some stories are good, some are bad, but the show is the truth! Real recognize real! And this Pod is the realest ! Stay humble and stay blessed - DJ Trae Nice
3. Too Reliant on Guests - The two hosts are uninteresting. You should turn on a show to be entertained by the host. This show’s entertainment is purely contingent on who the guest is. Nore asks questions we already knew the answers to and tries to inject himself into every story for clout. He also interrupts everyone and it’s unprofessional, annoying and distasteful with regards to journalism. EFN has potential but often takes a back seat to Nore’s antics. The show started off with promise but I promise you, I won’t listen again.
4. Love the show but - Don’t have whoever this big guy Jack is. He literally just kills the entire vibe of talking saying such immature/amateur stuff so loud, talking over people and has no substance behind nothing he says. Goodness….I’ve been watching drink champs for the past year, love and commend the show guy! I’ve been missing out all this time lol. Also this is a recent update, let’s keep the main host the ones in the conversation I see with the most recent episodes. Thank you.
5. Look in the mirror - Whatever happened to “I may disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” He’s holding up a mirror, and his detractors don’t like their own image. Since you’re helping to cancel Ye, I will cancel you! I don’t like cowards, hypocrites, or bullies. That reminds me… “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – for ever.” —George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four “Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)” —Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals, Rule : Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.
6. Does a on Breakfast Club - Why weren’t you willing to make the points with Ye during his interview with the same level of conviction that you are now vociferously making on The Breakfast Club? Grab the ratings and apologize later? You are doing Ye as well as the public a disservice on these matters.
7. Kanye’s Ego will be the death of him. - He is the epitome of what you learn in Psychology about delusions of grandeur. I don’t care if he can quote scripture, he doesn’t have enough education and knowledge to be saying % of what he is saying. Case in point - he’s begging these men to defend him when he can’t see his kids, but tells these same black me “white lives matter”.
8. Ye - The only reason anybody on here wanna silence kanye is because they voice dont matter so if they disagreed no one cares !! The fact of the matter is if hes wrong let him talk let ppl decide for themselves let ppl do thier own research and make a decision on if what he said is ok or not… silencing ppl or points of view you dont like is how you end up in a dystopian state .
Hip-hop emerged from the voices of the unheard. But freedom doesn't ring the same for everyone. Inside all corners of the culture, Black women and queer folk have dealt with the same oppression the music was built to escape. Season 2 of Louder Than A Riot examines who hip-hop marginalizes, and how misogynoir — the specific racist misogyny against Black women — is embedded into the fabric of the culture that we love. From Rico Nasty facing harassment from toxic fans, to Saucy Santana's unapo...

1. Literally One of the Best Podcasts - This is a fantastic podcast! I learned so much in the first season as my family is from St Tammany Parish and I grew up listening to Southern Rap. I’ve been eagerly anticipating the second season and then after two episodes were release NPR announced it was going to be canceled. So disappointing, hopefully NPR reassesses the decision or another podcast company picks them up.
2. I know the gurls don't usually do this… - But I was wondering if maybe y’all could drop episodes a week!?!
I have been waiting for season to drop for far too long. This first episode was everything I needed to get hooked back on. Thank you for putting the time and energy to share these stories that we experience and know are palpable in our communities. Y’all have the platform to share and Y’all are telling it how it is! and keep ‘em coming.
3. An embarrassment to NPR & journalism - This podcast is pathetic. Where’s the accountability? They spend the entire time making excuses and blaming others for the stupid actions of a few. If you’re dumb enough to sing/rap about a crime you committed, I have zero sympathy for you when you end up in jail. The world is better off for it
4. A Fantastic Listen - Louder Than a Riot is a fascinating and important listen about the history of hip hop and mass incarceration in the U.S. Wonderful writing, production, and two great hosts who break down complex ideas about anti-Black racism, artistic expression, and possibilities for liberation.
5. Well Done - Based on the Snap Judgement plug, Just binged the -parter on Bobby Shmurda who I’d never heard of before, Compelling story, well resourced and well reported. However, I was struck in episode by the false dichotomy of the heartbreak of Bryan’s mother and her call for individual accountability from the men who killed her son and the narrator’s squishy recitation of societal and economic “violence” as perhaps excusing their heinous and cowardly actions. I don’t dispute that the SYSTEM is in place, but I didn’t hear enough evidence to support the argument that the SYSTEM was the root cause of this particular tragedy. My prayers go out to Bryan’s mom, girlfriend and brother. I would have liked to know him.
6. Good podcasts bad marketing - I find it very annoying that you use the covers for older podcasts on new ones. More than once you have fooled me and I clicked on one I liked only to find it was one I wasn’t interested in. I think your podcasts are good enough that you don’t need to engage in deception.
7. Victimhood - This is podcast was created for people to victimized themselves to the fullest degree. I’m episode and only a hand full of people take responsibility for their culture and actions. Master p takes responsibility and the female host didn’t seem to like his “harsh” take. Even the Bobby shurmda episode was hard to listen to. You have a kid that died innocently. The host talking about the levels of violence. The system failed him. Blah blah that’s why he’s that why. Bruh shut up, I hate my people. What do y’all be talking about
8. Can I nominate y’all for an award? - Oftentimes when journalists tell “both sides” of a story they end up telling no story at all. But in this podcast, the different perspectives paint a unified, coherent, and complicated picture. The through line is about rampant anti-Blackness of course, but we arrive at that point in so many different ways. Oh yeah, also I learned some stuff about hiphop. :)

It is an entertainment p...

1. Good with major flaws - The content is well researched and the host has a good voice, but they can’t help themselves from going on long, drawn out narratives that they may think add to the tale, but really takes the listener out of the story. I’ve listened to a few and have found myself, at least once an episode, getting confused by the narrator’s train-of-thought tangents that are well-intentioned but fall flat. The end of the Bowie episode was a mess, the beginning of part of the Tupac episode with the Janet stuff was incredibly hard to follow, and on and on. The host should stick to researching and telling a story well. Leave out the over-artistic dramatizations of what’s happening; they don’t play well for podcasting and take away from the overall product.
2. This is the podcast to listen to! - I have been hooked on Jakes podcasts since I discovered them. His story telling is impeccable, I find myself hanging on every single word. Even if it is someone I have no interest in, he makes me utterly intrigued. I am blown away how much information he churns up about these artist, I couldn’t imagine how difficult it is to get this stuff. I cannot thank you Jake and the double Elvis team for all your hard work and the best podcast ever. I cannot wait for more!
3. Disgraceland Rocks!!!! - I discovered podcast by accident and I have been addicted to the series, binge listening to each and every episodes with headphones on. Its that good. As a result, I needed a bigger fix and I purchased the book Disgraceland. I read entire book in a sitting. It is well-written in a style that is captivating and vivid just like the podcast. If you have not listened to Disgraceland: I urge you to drop everything and listen to each and every episode, a true rewarding listening experience. Thanks Jake!!!!!
4. Binge listener alert!!! - This has to be one the most riveting podcasts I have ever listened to. It marries together my two favorite things…true crime and music knowledge. I play on a trivia team where my knowledge of all things pop culture and music gets called on regularly. This pod has come in so handy at trivia. I could listen to Jake all day long!! Keep ‘‘em coming and I will keep on bingeing!!!
5. Specific slice o' cheese! - Great podcast. I love rock n' roll and I love true crime and Jake blends them perfectly. Also happy to have this back on all streaming platforms! . I used to listen to it but couldn't figure our how to get it when it was exclusively on Amazon. Now I have some
binge catching-up to do!
6. Absolutely love Jake and his podcasts!!!!! - As a punk rock girl, i % appreciate Jake’s obvious admiration for the genre and by telling the stories that need to be told in pure Jake Brennan style!!! Even the other genres or individuals he covers, he does it in just the absolute coolest way possible! So kudos to you and thank you for making my nightmare of a work commute dodging through Philly drivers just that much more fun!!
7. Stellar! - I’ve been listening since SE, and am always thrilled for a new episode. Jake Brennan is an amazing host, which is why I listen to all of his podcasts. I love the storytelling with little known facts that makes Disgraceland one of a kind. Give this a listen, and you’ll be addicted like the rest of us Discos!
8. Found the podcast from Jake’s book DISGRACELAND - I was late to the party, but I’ve been listening for a few years now, and I’m obviously hooked. What a gift to go back to Episode on Jerry Lee Lewis with its re-release. It’s one of the most disgraceful rock-n-roll stories out there that even this Mississippi -something-girl didn’t know. I saw him perform in the ’s in Meridian, MS, for their annual Jimmie Rodgers Festival. He was an amazing performer. But I never heard these stories. Jake’s passion for storytelling is evident from the first episode. He gets more polished with each episode as he develops his style and skills and adds other writers and researchers. But there’s a raw talent and passion in episode that pulls you in for episode , , and on… This show is one where you may or many not be interested in a particular artist profiled in an episode, but you will find yourself listening anyway to hear the story.

1. Thank you!!! - Best podcast out, Gillie you’re a goat off rip as a rapper/ghostwriter for one of the best rappers alive. Wallo you’re a goat for being in a cell for yrs and afterwards making a difference and motivating everyone who wants to be motivated. I especially love when you guys do the business portion of the podcast. Men, keep doing what y’all are doing. And it’s just like that (RIGHT)!!!!
2. Philly all day - It just feel good to see the people from my time and erra to be doing big things like this!! I’m very proud of Gillie and Wallo because we come from some of the same struggles!! Wallo is very positive after doing years in prison and that go to show you that no matter what you can still beat the odds when they say you can’t. I learn so much just watching this show and things been already working out for me to get to the next level. Million Dollars Worth of Game is really a more then million dollars Solute to my brothers Gillie and Wallo keep doing ya thing
3. Educating an educator - I have been an educator in the public school setting for years. Times have certainly changed. To hear the way Gillie and Wallo relate to the younger generation, show them a path that’s positive while remaining relevant has made me reflect the way I relate to my students. I value this podcast, the bridging of the generational gap and laugh out loud each time I listen. Your impact is far greater than you know. Get my man Tobe on the podcast!
4. My favorite podcast - This is literally my favorite show/podcast!!! I watch faithfully on YouTube and listen whenever I’m riding…I’m inspired most listening to Wallo and his story of redemption, as I have had to make a similar transition after serving my own year prison sentence. Keep going, your impact is greater than you know!!! Definitely recommend to anyone in need of real G.A.M.E.!!!
New stories, new laughs, new random hot takes that no one asked for... New Rory & Mal.
Release date: 2023-03-21
1. Glad I gave their podcast a chance - I am a feminist so definitely never been a fan of JB . In fact I loved when Crissle used to drag him on The Read, but I digress. I assumed I wouldn’t like this show since misogyny and mediocrity is the basis of most podcasts with male hosts . However , Rory and Mal are fun, I love the dark comedy they sprinkle in sometimes and they even make their misogyny funny . I’m glad I gave their podcast a chance and Baby D I was so wrong ! Your take recently on Michael B Jordan was perfeita !! I only date Latino men and I found it amusing that the men (except Rory ) were getting so defensive ! This show is flawless
2. Podcasters need expertise - Podcasts that have experts in a given field have more perspective and facts, it makes for a better listen. Podcasts with people who only podcast for a living feels flat, and tends to sound like gossip. Nothing but opinions from people who ain’t did it themselves. Just my thoughts on this show.
3. Great Episode - I went ahead and started my YouTube/Podcast because of y’all. I am a year old college student and stepping into new territory at my age is always scary, but y’all inspired me. It’s deeper than just talking about trending topics, as men in general having a voice is essential to our peace. Your work is appreciated, keep inspiring. - @siriplayizayah
4. IN MY TOP - Been a fan since the last pod and the chemistry is everything I loved so I am excited to be a part of the journey and I’m enjoying the ride. My husband and I each listen while we’re at work or at home together. Part of our week by week routine. Top podcasts! Continue being your authentic selves and giving us that dope content! KKG
5. I tried - There’s no personality whatsoever. It feels like I’m listening to a podcast from the guy that used to do the clear eyes commercials. That ranting and yelling is definitely missed. Gave it another chance, and it was cool for awhile; then y’all spent talking about Joe and them books again. I’ve lost interest. Take that man to court if y’all that pressed, or let it rest. If you really feel he stole y’all money, why y’all not worried about getting it back, but worried about who think y’all lying. I’m done; again!!
6. Love the show, few ideas - Mal- keep it up you are a funny dude
Rory- you are great but I would like to hear you loosen up and not be so apologetic and feel the need to explain yourself and or start every sentence with “Love”
Edin- quick corny jokes go a long way so keep it up. Also you are the one that keeps the guys from being too serious. Great work
D- not a fan but some of her input is alright I guess
7. Can y’all actually research the topics? - I would like for y’all to actually give “I want to pod” energy. This sounds like y’all signed a bad deal and are forced to be here. This doesn’t seem like something you both throughly enjoy. This is a fan of the both you guys (on the old pod, listening since ). Hoping for improvements!!!!
8. Ep. Intro! - That “goodnight, good morning, good evening…” was an amazing greeting! Giving respect and acknowledgment to Keefie from Louder the Next Day podcast who originated that warm welcome in his intro- it’s dope to hear other podcast hosts, who may be a little more popular, like Rory and Mal, catching on!
Opinionated & informative with a taste of toxic: join Bridget Kelly & Mandii B every Tuesday for all things pop culture, music, and media through the minds of women.
Release date: 2023-03-21 Genre:Music > Music Commentary
1. Episode - I’ve been listening to this pod for about a month now and I’ve really enjoyed the topics and different point of views all ladies have and the way you ladies flow comes off so naturally. I felt moved to leave a positive comment because it’s deserved. No one should be shamed or bullied because of their experiences. Mandii B, if you read this, I don’t know you personally, but you have so much charm and you’re genuinely authentic. Not everyone will agree with your words or POV, but I appreciate you for being so raw and honest in who you are and sharing your experiences. It takes courage to share our pain and even more courage to admit who me are and our actions. You are always going to receive hate from people that don’t like to look in the mirror. You will always receive negativity from people that you make uncomfortable in their own skin. That is POWER. You are growing and learning just like anyone else. Keep thriving and making a shift in this taboo culture. I respect every woman on this podcast and continue to find pieces of myself in each conversation and experience shared. Thank you ladies - Justice Ayza
2. MY FAVORITE PODCAST - I LOVEEEE this podcast. I love the variety of topics they discuss and the music they play. If I could make one suggestion… Mandii please please please STOP cutting Bridgett off while she is speaking. Most of us enjoy hearing Bridgett’s smooth voice & her intelligent opinions on topics. Love you both!
3. One of the best podcasts - I love listening to this podcast every Tuesday and Friday. These ladies keep me on my toes with their thoughts on current trends and topics on pop culture and politics. I enjoy the unique perspectives of both Mandii and Bridget along with the friends with benefits. I love it so much I even signed up for Patreon. Keep up the great work ladies.
4. One thing! - Love the outline of the show and the commentary however, Mandi talks over everyone especially if they’re giving a different opinion. I know you all are big on audio quality, so as a viewer it’s very distracting. She was ridiculous on this most recent episode, with the music recap episode. Im glad that guy went off, only listening for B. Kelly at this point .
5. Bruh - stop the lip smacking - Cool podcast but the microphone etiquette is terrible. Smacking of lips being used as a “comma” in your conversation is MAD irritating. Especially trying to listen to this podcast with headphones on. Please blow y’all nose and drink some water. Y’all sniffle your mucus and smack your lips like times a podcast, get a engineer to cut the plosives if y’all gonna make bad podcasting a habit.
6. LOVE - I love this Podcast. As a mixed woman, I love the topics and it’s amazing hearing about other womens mixed experiences. I listen and I feel like Mandi and Bridget are my friends. THANK YOU for creating this podcast and this space for women. I love y’all! I’ll be here listening every Tuesday/Friday.
7. I love STTI - I’m such a huge fan of the show! I love you girls sooooo much! I’m listening to episode the marathon continues & I just wish mandii would let Bridget talk about her engagement I felt like mandii kept playing music or cutting her off & then she talked about her new teeth. I felt like there was a longer conversation about mandii’s teeth than Bridget’s engagement. Overall your podcast is great! I always look forward to Tuesdays & Fridays!
8. Love this pod but… - I have been listening since day and I truly get excited every time I get a new episode notification. HOWEVER - Mandii can tend to be a bit dismissive in the presentation of her point and consistent use of the phrase “Not only that” or “Not even that”. That feels like a shut down to the other person’s point who x out of is guest. This episode specifically was a fave UNTIL the the Twitter conversation. Mandii we love that your creating businesses and truly becoming a girl boss! But again you were dismissive of the hardships and plight of the people who were actually laid off. Your inability to acknowledge felt a lil off
From Rick Rubin, Malcolm Gladwell, Bruce Headlam, and Justin Richmond. The musicians you love talk about their life, inspiration, and craft. Then play. iHeartMedia is the exclusive podcast partner of Pushkin Industries.
Release date: 2023-03-21
1. Needs a wider variety of guests - This podcast would be great if the Red Hot Chili Peppers weren't the dominant guests on it every time I see a new episode has been uploaded. Rick, if you read these reviews, you worked with A LOT of artists. Ideas for future guests could be anyone from Tom Araya to Darryl McDaniels to cEvin Key, so please, consider broadening your guest pool.
2. Gabriels! - Perhaps the most inspiring podcast from Broken Record Yet! Gabriels are so talented, creative and trusting of each other. The Whole is exponentially larger than the sum of the three parts. The best part was hearing Rick get swept up in their vibe too! The normally understated cerebral Rick Rubin almost started to preach a bit! Thanks for helping me learn about Gabriels, their creative process and how Trust is such and integral ingredient to the magic they great. I too was swept up in their vibe.
A must listen for creatives. Cheers.
3. Rick Rubin is great - Rick Rubin has a way of leading which makes the conversation flow organically. I would listen more if he did every interview even if that meant less episodes. Sometimes I don’t listen even if the guest is an artist I like because it becomes just another typical interview. And I listen when Rick is on because he makes me want to check out artists I’ve never heard of.
4. Possibly The best music-related podcast - I just recently found Broken Record and I’m very happy I did. The episode with Johnny Echols was amazing - such a vivid time capsule of ‘’s LA, plus some surprising revelations. Rick and the other interviewers are great at letting their subjects tell their stories, and they don’t seem to have a need to interject too much. My only gripe is that I wish the episodes were longer, but I guess the producers subscribe to the showbiz adage “always leave them wanting more.”
5. I love the podcast but the editing.. - If you’re a music head and want a degree if inside-baseball with some amazing artists and really knowledgeable hosts, you will love this podcast. And I do! However, it seems more and more that the editing is really bad. When listening, it sounds like portions of episodes skip back and replay portions of the podcast. I actually thought this was going on because I work with my hands and can’t always check my phone. But this was bothering me so much I stopped working, and watched the time lapse normally but listened to the audio skip. I thought this might be a weird artifact from changing my speeds of playback over the course of the day, but it was a repeatable issue. But also, and most telling, this is a feature only on Pushkin podcasts. Weird move if this supposed to encourage a subscription to their own service.
6. Great all around - Great guests. Of course the interviews with Rick Rubin are top notch because there is generally a mutual dazzling between him and the artists. Plus he has worked with so many and has questions that “outsiders” might not get into. That said, the other hosts are also great! Just hard to compare with a music legend. Doesn’t mean that if those interviews were judged on their own merits they wouldn’t be five stars too. Love it.
7. My favorite podcast (besides mine) - No matter the guest, genre or generational gap, I love your podcast. Obviously I enjoy some episodes more than others but the interviews are always so insightful—they usually entice me to learn more about the featured guest. I loved the Black Pumas one—I was already a huge fan but their story, how Adrian and Eric connected—is so cool… And the episode featuring Cristobal Tapia de Veer, the composer and musician behind White Lotus, absolutely changed my mind about the series. I wasn’t a fan until I dialed into the nuances of his “Hawaiian Hitchcock” vibe. Can’t wait for season ! Henry Rollins is stellar—I love how he says “I take myself work seriously; I take commitment seriously; hit I don’t take myself all that seriously. And the chat with the very eclectic Khruangbin—YES! Oh and all of you hosts and intermittent hostesses have riveting voices
8. Re: Miracle and Wonder - I love the idea of this audiobook and Paul Simon is a wonderful interview, but Malcolm Gladwell spends way too much energy “explaining” to us what a genius Simon is. Dude, we know! He wants to pretend that we can’t really appreciate Paul Simon until he spells it out.
But when he lets Paul talk it’s very good.

2. Everything We Never Knew We Needed! - This podcast delivers insights and unknown facts about legendary R&B artists every week. The chemistry between J.

Keep it coming and please listen to the comments about upcoming guest suggestions. I agree with all of them!!
5. This show is what we need - I smile so wide when I listen to this show. Tank's excitement to talk about all the smallest details of making music and living life makes me so happy. For all those who are true fans of r&b, like the real r&b nerds? This will become your new favorite show. All these amazing artists who don't often get to share their life stories... It's fascinating. Keep it up!
6. Great Podcast - I’m proud of the homie, Tank! Been following Tank’s singing/work since the days Victor Johnson and Free back in DC. (Smile) Tank J compliment each other well. Episodes are informative. We needed this work in the space of podcasts. R&B is alive and here to stay. Keep rockin, fellas!
7. It’s a whole Vibe - I have a hr commute to work (hr coming and hr going) when I actually have to be in the office and this podcast is my saving grace. Listening to you guys makes the trip a breeze. I find myself laughing out loud and clutching my pearls.

If we all had a friend like J and Tank the world would indeed be a better place. I love how J keeps everyone honest and on their toes and I love how Tank brings the laughs . I love the way this show explores all realms of the music business and how we get introduced to newer and older artist . It’s a beautiful blend of black excellence. Excited to join along the ride . Listening to you guys feels like listening to family at the cook out Wishing this movement the greatest success.
8. MY FAVORITE PODCAST OF ALL TIMES! - As a serious and passionate musician, songwriter & musical historian… The R&B Money podcast speaks to everything I love about the genre and the art form it self. Two amazingly talented hosts inviting their friends and family to speak on the good, the bad & the wonderful experiences they’ve had growing and building extensive musical careers! Wow! This is soooo Good! I’ve been here since day one and I’ll be here for years to come. If they ever stop, I’ll start the show all over again & enjoy it! Thank you, Tank and J. Valentine.

1. considering all the songs - I appreciate all their insight, light banter and all around positivity. They have helped me discover so much of my favorite music. Thank you for providing this space. I spend all week listening to all the music recommendations from New Music Friday. I’ve tried a lot of music review podcasts and NPR’s ASC is the best!
2. What about the music? - Used to love listening to this show regularly. They always found great artists that were outside of the mainstream. Listened to a few episodes and it’s all about progressive ideology and messaging now. How the music sounds appears irrelevant. Not coming back. They’ve lost another listening with this strong shift to the progressive extreme left.
3. so boring, contrived and narrow - this feeling topped it once I read Boilen’s “most astonishing song” of this year was Regina Spektor’s “Up the mountain”. Really? musically, contrived. lyrically, generic. vocally, pretentiously soulless. This is a sample of the narrow ears and stance of this program. NPR music was once upon a time a diverse intelligent program. It’s now no other than another Facebook/Instagram generic platform of noise.
4. No Standards Anymore - I used to love tuning in to Bob and the crew as they surfaced bands I hadn’t heard of or new cuts from old faves. However lately, it seems like the standards for what is critically acclaimed music is taking a hit in favor of wide inclusion to appeal to the lowest common denominator. I’m not sure why mediocre pop songs or a plethora of same old same old rap is getting top billing on a show meant to surface exceptional music, lyricism, and production. The reason why most listeners turned to this resource was due to the taste level of the hosts. That is all but gone. I’m all for all kinds of music for all kinds of people, and I won’t say anyone is wrong for liking what they like, but this show is not the place for that. This show served a group of engaged and sharply critical in-the-know folks. I’d like to see it return to that and worry less about catering to the masses through diluted content.
5. Used to be better - Used to be my go to place to find new music and artists but the podcast has become stale in the last year or so. The split to the Friday show has been sad. It feels like bobs show is mostly rehashing older stuff and robins show is a top love fest. I miss the older show and have to find a new place to discover music.
6. Appreciating New Music - Has been my go-to for new music ever since I first discovered the podcast in . Although it’s still great, and I certainly understand and appreciate the progression to New Music Friday, I do miss the Bob & Robin long-form episodes (alternating song picks and sometimes around a central theme), as I think it somewhat unified the new releases and brought in some lengthier guest appearances and more in-depth attention to the music. Those episodes circa to early were some of the best I heard and really featured some incredible artists and soundscapes. In comparison, the episodes now just feel a bit more superficial in their relationship to new music. But I still appreciate all the work by the NPR music team and the continued exposure for lesser-known artists.
7. Keeps Improving - I’ve been listening to this podcast since , since I was and now am . Deep gratitude to all the hosts and staff for changing how I think about music, exposing me to countless new genres artists and albums that I may not have encountered otherwise. I do think the purpose of the Tuesday episodes is less clear now that New Music Friday is years old. So to all the hosts and staff, THANK YOU!
8. Mixed - Cat Stevens— out of Stars -- Show— out of Stars Christina Lee— I assume that you are a college graduate and possibly a “Communications” major. If so, please put that student loan debt to use and practice your interview skills. Your vast knowledge was completely buried by the word “like,” which you used approximately times during a recent episode. No doubt you were nervous, but it IS possible to be both “cool” and professional at the same time. Good luck!!
Song Exploder is a podcast where musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made. Each episode features an artist discussing a song of theirs, breaking down the sounds and ideas that went into the writing and recording. Hosted and produced by Hrishikesh Hirway.
Release date: 2023-03-22
1. Great breakdown of creativity and songwriting - I’ve been listening to this podcast for years and find so many creative, inspiring, and poignant moments in it. I recommend it often to friends. It’s well-produced; it’s a good length; the stems and artist interviews are great to hear. One of my favorite podcasts. I wish Book Exploder was its own podcast and didn’t appear on this feed; I’m not interested in Book Exploder.
2. Ophelia “The Lumineers” podcast is great!!! - 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.
3. 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.
4. A peek behind the creative curtain - 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 length, always fascinating!
5. Obsession! - 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 ways. It gives me permission to consider myself a songwriter and my ideas of value. The fact that most episodes are minutes also helps keep it bite sized and accessible. Thank you so much for your work!
6. Song Exploder: run or walk? Doesn’t matter, but listen to this podcast! - 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 creating and unique. Absolutely do not miss the NETFLIX series by the same name. It’s just as phenomenal. Special request for Mr. Hirway: Neil Diamond, any song, just think that interview would be phenomenally interesting. Also, Joan Jett and LL Cool J. Also any song they want to share. Thanks for the fabulous and fun Song Exploder podcast. (P.S. I enjoyed the TED Talk extra!)
7. Amazing! - 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. Awesome!
8. One of the greatest podcasts ever created - 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 joy and stirs true reverence to the entire teams of artists (production, vocals, instrumental, etc) who create the magic that we narrate specific memories in our lives out to and therefore can go back to relive our past experiences, all of which by just by pressing play… out of literal thin air?? It’s enough to strike awe into anyone. -Sorry if that was convoluted and a run-on but I wish more people would take a second to think about all the work that goes into making this medium of art. It’s nothing short of amazing.
Created and hosted by renowned media personality Angie Martinez, “IRL” sees Angie and notable guests sitting down to candidly explore the magic of life, it’s fragility, purpose and complexities. Angie’s conversations will explore legacy, philosophies, and the extraordinary ways we choose to live our real lives.
Release date: 2023-02-23
1. So good - I love this podcast so much! Angie has a way to get her guests to be so open, and she constantly shares her own vulnerability. It’s so real. We all go thru things and she has a true gift to be able to relate, empathize and be an encouragement to her guests.. and then shares all that with us. It’s beautiful. You can FEEL the energy in the conversations. And in these times, we need this.
2. Bringing my back to NYC - Definitely enjoy your podcast. You’re authentic and absolutely clear with your purpose. Thank you for your amazing podcast. I have lived outside of NYC for about years now; listening to your podcast brings me back to taking the train from Brooklyn to the City for work. Continue the amazing work!
3. Real - Inspiring - Entertaining - Easy listen - Angie’s interviews are like two friends having a normal conversation. Talking about real life topics with high profile people. You feel like you’re sitting at the table with them. You can relate. I love the authenticity and listening to Angie navigate her own personal growth. I needed a podcast that held space for the REAL! Love it.
4. Thank you - I been looking for a podcast that I at can relate to and this is powerful. Each pod cast has made me feel better about the trials and tribulations that I have went through and the space that I am in now through my journey. Thank you for showing real life when the world only see reels of the good life.
5. Love My Shorty - As the world gets to know you Queen those of us that grew up top of the map or up north love the fact that you are world known now. Ang remember driving your Hummer to and from the station? I worked at the Bloomberg Warehouse on the West Side Highway. I’m proud of you sis!! I’m loyal to you. Where Angie goes we go. I needed you to do this podcast!!! Love it!!!! Love you!!!
6. Liked the guest, not the host - I only listened to the latest episode. I thought the host wasn’t the greatest interviewer, out leagued by Kim K. The questions were not well planned and kind of rambling. I do t like to hear the interviewers perspective or thoughts, I like the interviewer to prepare and get the most out of the guest. If it was supposed to be a conversation between two people, they have to be equally interesting and only one person was.
7. The reason - This podcast is the reason why podcast should exist. Every story, every question, and every thought that goes into the creation of it creates a deeper love for the work you do! Season and there isn’t one interview I haven’t listened to more then twice. The Lauren interview made me see my own grief in a different way; Kelly made me appreciate my dad more, joe and Mallory gave me a deeper compassion for my brother and my clients.. I hope and wish you continue to do this forever!
8. Wow - As a New Yorker, Angie Martinez on the radio is like an awesome hero sandwich at the bodega, it just works. This Podcast is next level and the transparency and openness of Angie and her guest is so real and amazingly good. With every episode I get to laugh, learn and connect with every guest as they selflessly pour in to a cup, that we are all able to drink from. All while Angie is equally keeping it . Thank you so much Angie!! This is so needed at this time in my life and in the world. healing holdingspace enlightenment gems
In this intensely divided moment, one of the few things everyone still seems to agree on is Dolly Parton—but why? That simple question leads to a deeply personal, historical, and musical rethinking of one of America’s great icons. Join us for a 9-episode journey into the Dollyverse. Hosted by Jad Abumrad. Produced and reported by Shima Oliaee. Dolly Parton’s America is a production from OSM Audio and WNYC Studios.
Release date: 2021-07-06 Genre:Music > Music History
1. Outstanding - I binged all episodes on a cross country road trip. So engaged I blew past my scheduled hotel stop & kept driving until the last episode was over. ( Which left me looking for a hotel in no where Texas at am). I thought I knew everything there was to know about Dolly but I clearly did not. Great storytelling!
2. More Dolly, less host opinions please. - I am a huge fan of Dolly and her ability to appeal to so many different people around the world. Anytime she was interviewed or when they concentrated on her history, I loved every minute. I was disappointed that some didn’t like her answers, they tried to fit her in their version of Dolly. I loved that Jad was moved by her so many times, that was delightful to hear. The episode about the song Jolene was ridiculous. What about finding that little girl she met and ask her how it feels to be in a famous song? I wish journalists would just listen and let the listener make up their own mind. Dolly doesn’t need you to explain her, she does a great job all by herself.
3. Self Absorbed hand wringing - As others have stated, the interviewer and producer use Dolly as little more than a springboard for their own agenda and navel gazing. From an academic stating that Dolly doesn’t call herself a feminist simply because she’s not educated enough, to the ravings of political zealots furious that Parton won’t worship at their altar of activism, the podcast is a waste of a great interview with a genuinely interesting person.
4. Starts strong, veers off course - Dolly Parton, as we can know her, is a musical genius and a brand. Dolly Parton the Person is elusive and contradictory. While I appreciate the podcast-makers’ passion for seeing Dolly as an apolitical world healer, she’s a tycoon who will continue to amass fortunes even after death. On that note, the interview in which she discusses the technology for selling her post-mortem “click tracks” is both revelatory and disturbing. Still, the best episodes in this series analyze her comments rather than the host’s own navel-gazing.
5. Great podcast - For the most part this is an incredible podcast. Trying to pin Dolly down on her politics was very off putting. There was a level of disrespect there that was uncalled for. Why should she have to speak out for what you think she should say? The Dollitics episode was a dark spot in the series. Everyone knows that Dolly is off limits for politics. There tends to be a lot of patronizing throughout the podcast, especially from the producer. The Tennessee Mountain Home episode was beautiful. As a life long east Tennessean, it spoke to me in a personal way. Thank you for sharing that episode with us.
6. Enjoyable, but too much of the hosts - I think anyone who enjoyed this podcast would really like the audiobook Dolly Parton wrote and narrated titled Songteller. There are some similar themes/stories discussed in that book. I liked parts of this podcast, but the hosts inserted themselves into the story a bit too much for my tastes.
7. Our national treasure - Great look into Dolly, her life, and her impact. I appreciate that she wasn’t just the subject, but also a participant in the podcast. I would’ve liked to have seen more exploration into defining her America like the type of content in the episode with the university students. Overall well done. Quite a few ads that were repetitive; kind of tone deaf for the final episode to ask for listener support — haven’t we supported enough by listening through the long ad breaks?
8. I can’t stop listening. - I grew up in Charleston, Tennessee, about minutes away from Seviervulle I lmoved to San Francisco after college. This was a treasure for me to comb through my own personal nostalgia of the precious Tennessee Smoky Mountains. Thank you for this precious gift. Dolly Parton, is indeed, a goddess!

1. Great Podcast and I Am a Consistent Listener - I have a been Roots fan for decades. I was thrilled when Questlove/Amir began this podcast and I thoroughly enjoy the dynamics each of the cohosts bring to the show(Laiya, Phonte, Sugar, Boss Bill, and Unpaid Bill). In addition, I am a huge music fan of all genres so I enjoy learning from the guests while they converse about the various aspects of the business. I would only offer one suggestion for Questlove: Quest, please allow your guests to finish their thoughts before interrupting them to ask another question. The guests will be starting to comment or answer the previous question with an interesting point and you will interrupt them. I’m sure it’s from the excitement of them being on the show but your listeners would like for the guest to finish their thoughts. Sometimes you or the guest will circle back to what they were going to say. But, other times, it doesn’t happen and your listeners will have missed a gem of an opportunity to hear another aspect of their career and/or life. Please consider my humble suggestion. Keep up the great work!! Thank you
2. Alan Leeds is Legendary! - This Alan Leeds trilogy is everything! The man is a walking, talking music history book and the JB stories are classic. Note- People attending shows at the Apollo (where JB recorded his live albums) during mid-day, mid-week hours might be those who worked on the weekends and had a weekday off. Some had to catch a show while the children were in school. Mondays, for example, were for service workers like beauticians, waiters, theatre ushers, etc. These workers provided the services that most people sought on the weekends. For their benefit, places like the Apollo had a variety of hours. Not the best business model after a while but that’s how it was up until the mid-late s.
3. Dives So Deep You Need Scuba Gear - Even though Questlove has encyclopedic knowledge of pop music history, he always stays curious. His conversations are wide ranging AND deep, but never laborious. The co-hosts (shoutout Phonte, The Bills, and Laiya and Suga Steve) each bring something unique to the table. Makes listening to music a more fun experience.
4. Great show but… - Congratulations on Oscar win Questlove! Great Hall and Oates interviews! Layia still is the hinderance to this show. Questions are signs of not doing homework on artist coming to the show (i.e. ‘Sarah’s Smile comments) questions and comments very elementary. Minor annoyance to an otherwise informantive format.
5. Nerd Heaven - Love the show. I really appreciate the thoughtful questions and curated guests. Quest and Phonte’s encyclopedic knowledge of musical history, performances and the music industry is incredible. Stand out episodes: Justin’s Blow /Sophia Chang Alan Leeds / Jimmy Jam Kenny Gamble / Babyface Greg Phillinganes / Ray Parker Booty Collins / Al B Sure Great podcast. Really not feeling Laiya’s questions. Most are not relevant or very juvenile. Keep up the great work.
6. Laiyah’s Questions Deserve Answers - Supreme Team, I’m a Philly fan of the show, and I love tuning in. But, Quest, please let guests answer Laiyah’s questions! She has her own personality that she brings to the podcast, and her own brand of questions, to which I often want to hear answers. But oftentimes Quest will interject his own question following Laiyah’s, which results in the guest never responding to her question. Other than that, love the podcast!
7. My favorite Podcast of all time - Questlove and crew ask the questions that I would ask of their guests and probe in a way that only musicians and industry insiders can. My musical tastes are all over the place but these guys have turned me on to so much good music. I find myself stopping down to look up and bookmark songs that are referenced. I wish someone would publish a playlist for songs mentioned in each episode!
8. Greatness - I love this podcast they cover all aspects of the music game from the musical side, technical side, and radio side. When they go down the rabbit hole it’s the best because they get the beat stories out this people. The supreme team in my opinion is the best especially when Phonte is not out getting milk at the store .
The Coolest Podcast In The World. Hosted by Adam22 Watch these interviews on YouTube right here: https://www.youtube.com/nojumper
Release date: 2023-03-25 Genre:Music > Music Interviews
1. i fw it - tbh i know everything is going on wit the group beef and the group leaving BUT on the other hand I care for the Conversation/Interview with the people I am familiar with and the people I fw.Like tbh i never even used this app for anything but one other podcast (caresha please) and then i found no jumper and they interviewed people that I wanna listen to On top of that they have sooo many interviews on here !!
2. Manipulate interview style - I listened to the Chrisean and blue face interview and I found it to be extremely distasteful. I don’t understand why grown adults want to further excite and already terrible situation. I also didn’t like how one sided sharp is when it comes to blue face and Chrisean. You can tell that sharp already had a negative outlook of chrisean and wanted to use the interview to make her look bad. Definitely a WEIRD interview…
3. Podcast review - This podcast is my favorite because they talk about everything. They bring rappers and other people to share their stories and adventures in their life. The adventures can be from getting into a fight or being jumped. If your a person who likes rap music and like listening to crazy stories I would recommend this podcast for you.
4. Blame Flakko - Too much red pill content these days. Ever since Flakko came on it’s been downhill. Very disappointed in the Nick Fuentes “debate” that wasn’t even a debate because the guys admitted later that they weren’t prepared to push back on his talking points. Sneako also is a person who doesn’t deserve a large platform like this. Shame because I like Adam and the rest of the guys.
5. Disconnected was the best addition. - I think the disconnected show was the best thing added to No Jumper, it has all my favorite employees. Side note: Every episode I watch has a random part towards the end where it will repeat the previous minutes and then continue on to the end of the pod. Not sure if this is a glitch or what but it would be nice if somebody fixed that. Not a huge deal tho just wanted to mention it.
6. Great - This podcast is so open and real. You feel like you’re literally there hanging out with the hosts every week. Although they spend a large portion of the episodes making jokes & poking at each other for fun, they can quickly switch the flip to serious real life topics and dissect issues in there personal lives. Very down to earth. Easily one of my favorites !
Way Up With Angela Yee On Demand!
Release date: 2023-03-24 Genre:Music > Music Interviews
1. Congrats! - Love Yee! BUT, I think it would be really nice to hear more from Jasmine. I’m not sure what her “role” is on the show but, it would be great to have her answer the same questions as Yee. Like, who is she shining a light on, what she did last night, etc. seems odd to have her there for small talk. We wanna know more!
2. Show and Prove - Love the show but some constructive C. Work on the social media aspect. The pods are dropping after a day or two instead of a few hours after the show. You have four hours of show, but only giving us a piece of the pod. A lot of us are not in our cars all day or on a morning run, and really do not prefer live radio with minute commercial breaks lol. So I work nights and I listen to the pod or May pop over to YouTube for the video. Did the same with the BC. Allllso because most of us probably came over from your former show and you are right behind them, try your best to avoid talking about the same topic of you can help it, I listen to both pods back to back usually. Other than that great show, and love wealth Wednesdays. I think you should have two financial days a week minimum. One can focus on personal finance and the health that goes with it. Keep it up!!
Ebro, Laura Stylez and Rosenberg share their thoughts on everything from music, relationships, politics and more Monday - Friday 5am - 10am ET.
Release date: 2023-03-25
1. Love the Show but needs a REFRESH! - More Live Breaks ! No more rusty ride or dies from years ago AND Kill Curved - we know it’s fake it’s the same voices. You have a room full of fun and interesting people, create some new break material. Peter is amazing at impressions!
Back in the day You guys would do sketches, take more live calls. Get back to that
2. Best morning show! - I grew up listening to Elvis Duran and the Z Morning Zoo but eventually came across Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg’s morning show and switched over. After Cipha became a disgrace and the show became Ebro in the Morning, I immediately loved the new show. I love everyone on the show. My wife who does not listen tells me she sees why I like them so much because the crew seems to genuinely like each other. I’m not a hip hop head so the podcast is perfect for me because I really love the discussions they have. It’s a great balance of making sure the important news is reported as well as keeping the show fun. I wish I could attend one of their shows and just chill in the corner and observe it all.
3. My go to show for what’s happening in the community! - Between Ebro in The Morning and The Breakfast Club, I always know what’s happening in the community. I listen everyday to all of y’all and it really just makes my time at work go by so much better. Honestly, I wish there was a cross over between you guys. Both shows promote the same messages, and there isn’t a reason why you can’t be a fan of both shows! Solidarity guys!
4. Love the show, but… - Huge fan of the show. Been listening for years! Love the social commentary and “Congratulations, You Played Yourself”. However, segments like Curved really need to go. They replay the same ten episodes so much, I can almost lip sync them. I’d go as far as to say that they’re fake. A few of the voices seem to be the same ones. Maybe come up with a new segment to replace that one. Other than that, I love the show and the chemistry between the team!
5. ¡My Audio Lifeline to NYC while living West! - I have loved listening to the morning show! It’s one of the only radio shows truly discussing the things that people really need to take in; systemic race and classism, sports and money, health and wellness, popular culture, love n’ ‘lationships, etc. Each radio personality meshes well with one another and there’s a genuine sense of good morale amongst them. ¡All in all; Ebro, Peter, Laura, Shani, Cast, John, Griff and anyone who I may have missed, your voices are all family to me!
6. Effin up - Love the show, from tennessee and I listen to the podcast everyday. I love the international and political topics plus what’s happening in y’all’s area. I must say though John be effin up with updating these podcast. We didn’t get one for Monday // just the bonus one and when he does they be chopped up like c’mon brodie. Other than that I love the show.
7. Update daily and on time please - Listener from Cali. Big FOT. I just wish the new episodes would be updated daily and on time. I would prefer to be able to start my day with the show. But sometimes, yesterday included and so far today an episode isn’t available yet. Really missed shaunie kulture last week. And then Ebro wasn’t in half the week neither. I’m hoping once episodes are uploaded they both are back.
8. Love - I listen to this podcast religiously to the point that it throws off my day if it’s not posted by am. Listening to y’all is like having an adult convo on the stoop with childhood friends. Love the different points of view and perspectives. Don’t ever change. Rosenberg, good looks on Real Late!
Andrew Hickey presents a history of rock music from 1938 to 1999, looking at five hundred songs that shaped the genre.
Release date: 2023-02-21 Genre:Music > Music History
1. This podcast is an understated GEM! - I love everything about this show! The concept is great. And the content is interesting. But Andrew Hickey makes interesting content FASCINATING. And his execution on a smart concept is exceptional. Music is incredibly important to me, but I’m not a trained musician or musicologist. Hickey does a truly masterful job of explaining unfamiliar concepts in a way that is illuminating and respectful (i.e., not patronizing.) Personally, I know far more about blues, folk music, and country than about rock & roll. So I love how AH reflects on the relationships among the genres. Hickey also does an exemplary job of handling the appalling racism and sexism one has to confront in looking at this history. Other podcasters (esp. those who are white and cis-gender) should look at this podcast as a model for how to engage with content that necessarily addresses racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of prejudice and abuse. He does all this AND manages to throw in some hilarious lines (very deadpan.) Hard to believe, I know, but it’s true. This podcast is an ABSOLUTE GEM. Heading over to Patreon right now…
2. Never less than stars - I look forward to Andrew’s podcast more than any other show that I follow. His research is well done. His presentation is without pretense. He presents without inserting himself into the story (unless he has to put in disclaimers). I hope he finds more songs after this show gets done!
3. The Rock And Roll Puzzle Assembled - As a fan of the the Rock And Roll ( or just Rock ) music genre since the very early s this podcast is one of many sources I’ve dipped into in search of its history. The beautiful thing about the podcast technology is that we couldn’t have imagined a source this engaging besides reading a book just a few years ago. Very in depth links made between artists, songs, genres, social commentary etc but all of it worth listening to. If you are curious about how rock music began, this podcast is a must listen. Can’t wait till I get to the s…
4. Now THIS is What I Call a Music Podcast - Exhaustively researched, meticulously edited, professionally delivered. An absolutely fascinating dive into songs and artists we’ve heard of but may not have known the whole story. Better than many audiobooks I’ve listened to on the same subjects. Wish I could give more than stars. Will check to see if Andrew has a Patreon because this podcast is worth supporting - keep up the great work!
5. A towering achievement - This is the greatest music podcast hands down. I see people likening it to Cocaine and Rhinestones, which is a valid comparison, but doesn’t begin to scratch the surface. It’s exhaustively researched, lovingly presented, and brilliantly details the story and development of the music and musicians. It’s careful, insightful, and joyful. Thank you so much, Andrew, for your work on this.
6. Songs - General Review - REALLY love this podcast! I have learned a lot, and I thought I knew a lot before. Very well done, and I appreciate it. My only criticism is for the warnings that come at the start of many of the episodes due to parts of the story dealing with drugs, misogyny, violence, etc. I get it. But in my mind, if you’re listening to this podcast and don’t already have an idea of what’s coming, and are offended by these topics, you probably don’t like rock and roll anyway. Thanks!
7. Fabulous podcast - The research Andrew puts into the podcast is beyond incredible. Songs is my absolute favorite podcast. The amount of learning is off the charts Backstories, connecting artists, music theory… it has it all! I highly recommend it. Check out the episode summaries. Become a patron! Thanks so much for providing this much needed diversion!
8. Gold standard - This podcast is so amazing, sometimes I read other material in Andrew Hickey. This comment is being written in Andrew Hickey, actually. This podcast has hit on something astounding; rich, uncompromising miconarratives that give — sometimes good, sometimes bad — severe depth to the previously one-dimensional and carefree hits we all thought we knew from the pantheon of th century pop singles. I would say this podcast is “effortlessly entertaining”, were it not for the galactic amount of work that goes into the show, its episodes, and every sentence spoken. Andrew’s citation standards for information are almost scientific, and his ability to weave gripping stories out of the material is almost poetic. I look forward to listening & learning every day. Truly an achievement that any enthusiast of any interest can and should model their own infotainment podcasts by. My only real complaint is how performative it can get at times with identity politics. Thankfully this is only occasional. I also wish the coverage went up to year and beyond, though that’s easy to ask for & hard to provide… and now that I think about it, maybe Kid A is the perfect place to snap the pseudo-canonicity of rock music as pop.
The 1990s were a turning point in music: with the increasingly connected world enabling an unprecedented coalescence of various styles and genres, the decade featured the rapid evolution of sonic artistry — and subsequently shaped the soundscape of eras that followed. Listen along as The Ringer’s preeminent music critic Rob Harvilla curates and explores 60 iconic songs from the ‘90s that define the decade.

1. I’m glad this has gone on for more than songs - I recently started listening to this podcast and it has become my favorite of the week. I’ve been going through previous episodes and the Limp Bizkit one made me laugh out loud several times. I love the way Rob delivers all of the information about the specific artist/song, as well as his own (sometimes self admittedly embarrassing) nostalgic anecdotes every episode. But my favorite parts are each time I hear the start/stop of the tape player.
2. Beautifully and Thoughtfully Done! - Rob’s recount of personal moments in his life where specific songs are now that memory’s soundtrack is all of us! His deep appreciation for the song and for the band/artist’s origin story, and similarly the evolution of the artist and sound, is palpable in how marvelously each episode is delivered. He is amazing with his narration and storytelling ability. The dry humor is fantastic. I also appreciate how he approaches culturally significant issues and somber issues as it relates to the song’s timing in society. The guests are so knowledgeable and mesmerizing to listen to.
Love. This. Podcast!
3. Love everything about it! - I love this podcast so much! I’ve been binging this since December. I’m learning so much about the music I grew up with, and I really appreciate the context that I didn’t have access to at that time. Rob has a perfect voice for audio. His writing and vocal delivery are smooth and evocative; I can picture the scenes he sets from his own experience, while reliving my own experience of the ’s with all the perspective that comes from being in my early ’s. This podcast has helped me power through all the planning, traveling, and settling in of my move from northern Virginia to my dream home in the Cleveland suburbs. Ohio, especially northern Ohio, is highly underrated. I’m grateful to Rob and everyone who makes this podcast. It’s been an informative, sensitive, enlightening, and positive delight.
4. Holy $! shut up guy - If you want to hear someone who loves the sound of his own voice and goes on the most self- involved egotistical tangents that have nothing to do with the song in the title - maybe you’ll like this. I hate this podcast - it has such potential only to be completely bungled by this clown. Shame on you Bill Simmons for being like ‘oh yeah this guys good!’ Don’t listen to the HOOTIE and the blowfish episode unless you want to go on the worlds worst journey to nothingness. He doesn’t even TALK about this song!! I hate this guy did I mention that yet
5. Best music podcast out there - A beautiful blend of personal anecdotes and sharp music criticism. For those of us who grew up in this era, this podcast is something of a tonic to ease our aging hearts and minds. We aren’t alone; we share these songs and collective cultural memories. Rob is the best at guiding us back while somehow moving us ahead. Brilliant podcast, please keep podcasting!!!! songs that explain the aughts! I’m already there.
6. Love it! - Unlike some podcasts I’ve listened to, I quickly got hooked on this one. Rob is an encyclopedia of knowledge and excellent storyteller, because he truly is an expert in his field. Despite being an expert, he hosts with such a self-deprecating style, that you too will quickly appreciate this podcast for his charm, humor, and knowledge. If you want to relive the ’s and dive in deep to the stories behind these songs, start listening now!
7. Love this! - This is a smart and funny analysis of ’s music. I can always relate to the host’s description of himself during this time period. Please don’t stop at songs! An insane decade like the ’s is the gift that keeps on giving, for better and for worse. Might be entertaining if you did some listener requested songs. Perfect sorbet for those who fill their playlists with murder shows.
8. PJ episode - Yellow Ledbetter was a great episode. The nuances of the sound CD players make to the skip the first five seconds of not so great songs to even giving an objective measure of how many great songs on an album instantly transport me to year old me. However, one thing I find discouraging between music critics is the praise of Pearl Jam transitioning from radio/record performers to creating a sustainable model of performing and giving to fans. It must be the gormat in which PJ was presented to the critics through thoughtful, artistic albums. But one problem though was there was already a rock band in the s that dispelled the radio/record format way before PJ. A rock band that relied on bootleg albums for promotion and connection for fans. A rock band that encouraged fans to bootleg and share. A rock band that never had a radio hit but would routinely sell out shows at MSG in the s up until today. A rock band that released bootleg albums through their record labels to provide fans with high quality audio. A rock band that gave a unique show every night. A rock band that started recording and was first in streaming their shows via websites and apps knowing thats what fans wanted. This rock bands was more innovative and created this structure before PJ did yet they get the glory. This rock band that peaked in the s changed the scope of music, touring and streaming now. So, when’s your episode on Phish going to be?

1. Love this podcast! - I really enjoy this podcast! It goes without saying that I’m a huge N’SYNC fan, but Lance does such a great job in this roll. He’s a very good conversationalist, and I SO enjoy every episode. Lance, if you’re reading this - maybe a talk show should be in your future! After the reunion tour, of course ;-).
2. AMAZEBALLS! - Mondays -my start to the work week, have always dragged until Lance and Turkey have graciously decided to make my morning commute fun. I love listening to this podcast every week and am learning all sorts of things about ’s boy bands I had never known. It feels like I’m right there in the conversation with Lance, Turkey, and the guest for the week. I feel like we’ve all become besties! Please continue this podcast until I retire many years from now, so I can keep enjoying an entertaining drive to work. Thanks so much for your effort in making every Monday enjoyable for me. Love, MB. P.S. - a show needs to be pitched to Bravo called “Real Boybands”, similar to Real Housewives. If Lance were to be cast in this show, what would his tagline be?
3. This is great - I think this is a great podcast, and I’m really glad someone from one of my favorite bands is hosting it. However…if JC Chasez comes back on, as a guest or a host, please…turn down his microphone. I could be wrong, but I think it was him guest hosting episode with Jonathan Knight as the guest…and I about crashed my car when JC yelled piercingly in to his microphone “Dorchester!” Please don’t yell in to the mic like that. If it was Jonathan that yelled that…turn down the guest’s mic. I couldn’t finish the episode because of how loud everyone was. But I’m really looking forward to who comes on next.
4. A Cool Podcast - It’s an incredible podcast! Even though I wasn’t around to enjoy the boyband craze of the s & s, it was interesting to listen to the evolution of the boy bands that hop on the pod. I look forward to the new episodes every Monday. I recommend subscribing. You won’t be disappointed! Love you Lance!!
5. Lovvvvveeeeee - I literally love everything about this pod cast. I’m a diehard NSYNC fan!! I look forward to new episodes every Monday. I’ve loved every episode so far but I especially love the ones with you and Joey!! I think you guys are hilarious together and I would love to hear him co-host more episodes with you guys.
6. This yo Tween Girl ’s this pod! - I love this podcast so much. I was a tween in the ’s and loved all things ’s but I was SO in love with pop culture and boy bands. N’SYNC was by far my favorite (but I loved them all) and I get so much joy listening to this podcast each week. I love the behind stories and the evolution of all of the guests. I have all the nostalgia for these groups. My older sister (who passed in ) used to drive me and my friends to all of the shows and always had a knack for getting some sort of hook up or backstage adventure. We never met N’SYNC but it’s really fun to remember all of the shenanigans. I also love Lance and his husband! So fun to listen to them and hear about their parenting journey.
7. Brad Fischetti episode - This was a great podcast! I am not that familiar with LFO, sounds like they were a great band! My favorite boy band is Backstreet Boys. I skipped the Jon Knight episode, I was never impressed with NKOTB, not for me, maybe others. Just think that BSB and INSYNC are much better!!!!
8. Great podcast - Lance thanks for bringing back the memories of when we all where young… I can remember learning all the words and dances to all the albums of NSYNC. This podcast brings back that nostalgia. Plus to know all the juice deets from all the other boy bands amazing. There’s some good laughs in the podcast as well. love one of your peanuts(penis) hahahahah Tara
Norah Jones is a multi-GRAMMY winning singer and pianist who loves playing music with people, so she started her own podcast to do just that. Each episode, she sits down with a different guest for impromptu musical collaborations and candid conversation. Her guests come from all walks of life and every musical style and you never know where the songs will take them. So, come hang out in the studio. Norah Jones is Playing Along!
Release date: 2023-02-28 Genre:Music > Music Interviews
1. Amazing! - I’ll be honest, prior to hearing her on Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, I hardly knew who Norah Jones was. But Conan’s admiration for her made me decide to check out this podcast. Most of what I listen to is history and science, so I didn’t anticipate being IMMEDIATELY enamored of her and her guests. Norah’s genuine love for he friends and what she does is heartwarming. Her voice is seductive (not necessarily in a sexual way) and she chooses such interesting guests. In a scant few episodes she had introduced me to musicians I may otherwise not have heard of, and given me a new appreciation of one I already liked (Mavis Staples).
2. Great Format - Playing Along has great potential to be a big hit as a pod. It reminds me of that great long-time NPR show Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland. That show ran for years, and she attracted guests such as Dave Brubeck, Bill Evans, Diana Krall, and…Norah Jones. Norah Jones has the personality to make the show a big success. I like her mix—if it continues past the early days—of stars and lesser known musicians of great talent. I think a stronger trend toward musicians who know the theories and techniques behind what they do will make for more interesting conversations. Not that they want to have a discussion on suspended ths, but sometimes understanding why a tune is powerful or catchy can be very interesting to the audience. In moderation. If you’re a fan of music and how or why it works, this is the show for you. I enjoy it.
3. What I’ve Been Waiting for in a Music Podcast - I’ve been listening to podcasts every day for the last years. This is the first time I’ve ever been moved to write a review. It is equally as powerful for music fans as it is for professional musicians like myself. The Mavis episode…I’ve heard Mavis interviewed many times over the last years. This is by far the best. The most personal, unguarded, uplifting and genuinely beautiful. I give much of the credit to Nora, whose musicianship is just so outstanding. Their mutual adoration for each other can be heard not just in the gushing words, but this effortless harmony connection. Both have such incredible harmony skills and a soul delivery of everything they sing. As an interviewer Nora is a natural. The conversation flows so well into the songs that the listener never touches the ground. And, when it was over I felt, “I just got to experience that.” So thank you, Nora. -LM
4. This podcast feels… - Like a hug from my Grandmother!! It makes me feel so happy. It’s like you’re getting to sit in a cozy studio and watch old friends reminisce and play together. Amazing. And Norah Jones always sound like a straight up angel singing! she makes me tear up and smile happy smiles at the same time. She’s a fantastic interviewer, funny and beyond charming!! We need more feel good like this in the world. Thank you.
5. Simply Delightful - I listened to the Mavis Staples episode first and was just absolutely delighted. Norah asks such insightful questions. I love how Mavis was just having a conversation with Norah and when she would start to praise Norah, Norah would thank her and then flip the conversation back to Mavis. If Norah decides to call her music career quits (May that never happen!) she could easily turn into interviewer! Can’t wait for more episodes!
6. Fun informative and feels like home - This podcast feels so good to listen to. It is everything I need to escape and catch a bit of lightheartedness. It makes me feel warm. I am learning so much! I had never heard of Tank and the Bangers before, but now I can’t turn them off! I am having fun and learning so much about Norah and her guests!
7. Lovely concept and execution of her podcast! - Could listen to Norah read or sing the phone book with her warm voice so for her to have her own podcast is very exciting news! I was excited to see one of my favorite artists, Jeff Tweedy, as her first guest and even more excited that not only would she be interviewing him but also that they would be performing duets of some of his songs! The result is great! A very relaxed and comfortable long form interview between friends and some great versions of some of Jeff's songs and hers as well. Perhaps this will plant two seeds ) that they should do a duets full length of all new material (maybe some covers too) and ) that Jeff should also start a podcast! Looking forward to all the future episodes with various other artists! Fantastic! Well done Norah!
8. Refreshing, Innovative - What a novel and creative project - Thank you, Norah These BTS sessions are timeless. I always believed the best way to complement the time we are given in this world would be through listening to the experiences of others as we create our own and share it with others as well.
In a podcast landscape of news and politics, it’s refreshing to see artists of your caliber join the medium. I’m not in the music industry but it’d seem to me that hearing about the creative process and its multiple side conversations, it’s a reassurance that they also are on the right track.
Apologies I can’t be more objective - it’s Norah Jones Can’t wait to see the new guests, be at the live podcast tour ( ), and get to my first Norah Jones concert
