I look forward to Setlist every week! Andy and Chris are hilarious and very well-spoken, and beyond that, they know all of the ins and outs of the music world! I recommend this to every musician and music geek I know. It's super well-produced, educational, and entertaining.

Excellent, Excellent Podcast

Though this is a UK based podcast, they have an excellent understanding of laws and business practices related to the music business here in the US. They cover the most up to date US stories and breaking news and are able to explain complicated issues (such as US copyright law, US digital streaming court cases) better than some of the other US based music business podcasts. Keep up the great work!
