Listen: Glenn Fricker, Joey Sturgis, Eyal Levi, and Joel Wanasek Critique Unsigned Bands on the JSF Podcast

The podcast — which is co-hosted by Sturgis, Eyal, and Joel Wanasek — centers on recording, mixing, and mastering, as well as business advice for upcoming music producers and industry professionals.

If you wanna hear the rest — and I know you do!!! — you need to subscribe to The JSF Podcast as a “Listener” (just five bucks a month!) or higher. You can do that here. In addition to getting to hear all the podcasts (with notable guests such as Andrew Wade, Dan Korneff, Alan Douches, and Bob Katz), subscribing offers some awesome additional perks, including Skype critiques, access to a private online community, live Q&As, discounts on select software products, and more! And that’s to say nothing of the fact that, between Joey, Eyal, and Wanasek, these guys have recorded and/or mixed The Black Dahlia Murder, The Contortionist, Asking Alexandria, Miss May I, Trapt, and Righteous Vendetta (to name but a few). Even if you don’t like those bands/albums, you gotta admit, those are some impressive resumés. So their podcast really is a must-listen for anyone interested in production and engineering.
