About The What Podcast


The What Podcast is a weekly podcast by two Bonnaroo veterans exploring and highlighting some of the lesser known acts announced at this year’s festival. Brad Steiner and Barry Courter are two experienced Bonnaroovians from Chattanooga, Tennessee - just 70 miles from Manchester.

Each week, Brad and Barry do a deep dive into the artists and explore their songs, stories, and their journey to the stage at this year's Bonnaroo festival. Along the way, they share some of their own stories from their combined experience on The Farm. Occasionally, you'll also hear interviews with some of the artists as well as industry insiders like Ashley Capps (AC Entertainment) and Jim Burress (Columbia Records).
