About The What Podcast


The What Podcast is a weekly podcast by two veterans of the entertainment media universe with a passion for live music and music festivals. They came together over a love of Bonnaroo and found out pretty quickly that they are not alone. In fact, since launching four years ago, they found kindred spirits all over the world who also love the vibe found only at music festivals.

Each week they share their own stories and opinions, but they also dig deeper and talk to the musicians and industry insiders who make the magic happen. They talk to the lawyers, the label heads, the booking agents, the promoters, the festival founders, the fans, and even the guy who puts the spice in Spicy Pies.
