As a former 2nd violinist/violist in high school and civic symphonies, I thoroughly enjoy your podcast. While in school, I had to learn (and promptly forgot) some of the information you cover in a MUCH more engaging manner than any textbook. Had your podcast been available way back in the day, I think much more of it would've stuck. You even make the operatic music (my least favorite) entertaining. Brilliant!

Surprised how much I enjoyed "Shadow of Doubt". Thanks for making me aware of it. Not so much on the German rap.

A great podcast teeming with character and charm. Both of the show's hosts, Chris and Kelly, bring a great charismatic prescence that make the show worth listening to. This, along with fun and imformative segments, makes you feel as though something can be taken away from each episode. Also, is it just me or is Kelly's voice and diction eerily similiar to actress Emilia Clarke
