My favorite of all the guitar podcasts

The extraordinary collective knowledge of the hosts is astonishing. This is a content rich show. It is an added bonus that they are very entertaining. They are most like a family of angry chimps given just enough food to sustain them and subsequently prone to fighting amongst themselves for survival. I mean this in the nicest possible way.

I laughed, I cried
