All Songs Considered Podcast Review

OUR RATING:

Recommended in Edition # 152 of the Find That Pod newsletter.

In March 2022, I  discovered the NPR All Songs Considered podcast and have become a regular listener since then. The podcast features in-depth discussions and reviews of new and noteworthy music that, perhaps through no other fault other than my own laziness, I otherwise would have never discovered. The podcast also features interviews with musicians and industry professionals for those of you wanting a deeper look at up-and-coming musicians and the music industry more broadly. 

The Structure

Each episode is thoughtfully curated and provides a diverse range of genres and styles, ensuring there is something for everyone to enjoy. One of the aspects I appreciate most about the podcast is the knowledgeable and passionate hosts, Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton. They bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the table, and their enthusiasm for music is infectious. After listening to an episode, I always learn something new and gain a deeper appreciation for the artists and their work. 

The Podcast’s Strength

Another strength of the show is its commitment to featuring underrepresented and up-and-coming artists. I have discovered so many talented musicians through the podcast. The hosts also prioritize showcasing diverse voices and perspectives within the industry, which is both refreshing and important. In addition to the informative and engaging discussions, the podcast also incorporates live performances and exclusive recordings. People often search for “best of X year” lists to get the most popular new songs featured throughout the year on this truly terrific podcast. 

It’s a great way to experience the music in a different context and really appreciate the artistry behind it. The production quality of the show is top-notch, and the music always sounds fantastic. Overall, I highly recommend the NPR All Songs Considered podcast to anyone who loves music and wants to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and releases. It’s especially great for those starting to feel out of touch with what the kids are listening to these days. 

All Songs Considered from NPR is an excellent resource for discovering new artists and gaining a deeper understanding and appreciation for the art form. Whether you’re a casual listener or a die-hard music fan, there’s something for everyone on this show.
