Hi! I really like JC's music too. Could you tell me the name of the NPR bit before the Re Your Brains song? I was looking for it on his site but there are a lot of songs to look through.

Everyone does their podcast differently. That's the joy of having so many to choose from. A lot I listen too but there are some that I don't. Like you suggested, I just "left quietly". Just because it was exactly the way I wanted it didn't mean it wasn't exactly what the podcaster & the loyal listeners they had attracted did want.
Keep it up.

I do like your focusing on one artist each podcast.

Congratulations and good luck for your wedding!

Knitting happily in Australia.
