i love your show and your tips. Im starting a true crime podcast and I was wondering about the theme music for my show. I noticed a few shows i listen to get music from bandcamp. now if I buy a song and or albulm from bandcamp would that give me the permissions needed to use it as my theme song and or songs in my show? Or is that a seperate fee.
