What a cool podcast. I enjoy the intro with some background, and always like to hear the guests do their “two minutes” on what made them.

Fascinating

But way too many musicians. There are literally millions of jobs out there, and I get that you are a diehard fan of obscure bands people forgot existed twenty years ago, but so far they’ve all had the same general story. More variety!
