5 Great Music-Centric Podcasts You Should Be Listening To

May 27, 2021

The podcast revolution is here, and it looks like it's officially here to stay. If you're intrigued about podcasts, but haven't explored them yet—we've got you covered with a few recommendations! Here are 5 great music-oriented podcasts loved by the Jamstik team.

And The Writer Is..

Andthewriteris

Hosted by renowned songwriter (and recently playwright) Ross Golan, “And The Writer Is..” is one of those podcasts you just can’t turn off. Anchored by lengthy, in depth discussions with writers, producers, and artists, these conversations are so candid and comfortable sometimes it can feel like you’re in the room with them. The content can range from stories behind successful songs, to general workflow, and even discussions about the industry itself and tips and tricks for up-and-coming musicians.

Broken Record

Broken Record Podcast

Hosted by Justin Richmond with interviews by Rick Rubin and Malcolm Gladwell, this podcast sometimes just feels surreal. Rubin is revered for his ability to bring out the best in the artists he produces and that same power translates to his interviews. His calm eccentricity provides a safe space for the artists to speak freely—usually resulting in incredibly captivating and informative discussion.

Couch Wisdom

Hailed by Questlove as the “’Inside the Actors Studio’ for music”, Couch Wisdom offers great insight into the works of a wide variety of creatives. From Bjork to Young Thug, this series covers it all. Regardless of your music taste, there’s something here for you.

Song Exploder

Song Exploder

This podcast is so great that it was adapted into a Netflix series as well. Song Exploder offers an in-depth look into the creation of some of the biggest songs in the world. The videos are cinematic and incredibly well produced—the content is second to none.

Questlove Supreme

Questlove Supreme Podcast

Hosted by the almost mythical drummer Questlove (The Roots, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, etc), this podcast is absolutely delightful. The energy is indescribable. Not only is Questlove a fabled drummer and producer, but his deep knowledge of music culture could surely justify labeling him a music historian as well. The discussions range from classics to modern hits and the guests range from mega stars to legendary behind-the-scenes creatives.

Extras:

Mix With the Masters

Mix with the Masters

If you’re interested in mixing or even just taking a peek into the work flow of some of the heaviest hitters in the game, this is the place for you. MWM is a subscription-based video platform, but boy is it worth it. A wide range of mixers and producers open up their project sessions and discuss their workflow for some of the biggest songs in the world. This is definitely not geared for the passive consumer, these videos are tech heavy. We’re talking DAW’s, plugins, hardware, microphones, etc.

 

Your Favorite Producer’s Youtube Channel

Especially in the time of COVID-19, many producers and mixers have taken to platforms like Instagram live, Twitch, or Youtube to engage with their followers and share their knowledge. You might be surprised what you can find these days, everything from Timbaland critiquing fan submitted beats to Ian Kirkpatrick breaking down smash hits from artists like Dua Lipa and Selena Gomez.
