Still can't believe they released RTJ4 for free. Phat beats and throwback flows. Everyone should hear it atleast once.

Comments re Australia: “Never heard of that continent, or country, or anything related to them. As far as I know it just stops at dance monkey.” I’m Australian; you’re offensive; I’m not listening to any more eps. Bye

I have had Amazon music & didn't like the quality of the sound & layout so I rarely used it. I also hate commercials. Amazon upgraded their quality & they have no ads. Now that I'm hooked & have been using the service a lot, soon the service will no longer be available free. GREAT PLAYLIST you can download free. You will like this. Amazon music: acoustic morning playlist. there are 3 acoustic playlist that are different moods all help all you feel better & calms the nerves. Make your own playlist. Amazon music: playlists best of the Blues. will Also help you feel better & if you're with your mate have better sex. Amazon Music: Road trip playlist- helps gets you off your ass. Amazon Music: Best of hard rock & hand banging playlist, helps if ur into that. Amazon playlist: old school like the playlists in the movie Jackie brown. Rap doesn't help me relax. it make me want to jump up & down & that's the opposite of your request. I'm not gangster. enjoy being homebound.

Podcast have a lot of useful information sometimes. Sometimes there are just people rambling on about stuff just to be heard on the media.

This podcast has a Sports Talk Radio vibe. Condescending and abrasive.

still waiting on your Lauren Daigle episode that argues the pointlessness of CCM and the need for a more Twenty One Pilots-esque approach to faith music!
