Consistent, Informative, Entertaining
Marc Gunn compiles a very consistent and informative podcast. Each is packed with the richest indie bands of the genre which not only makes it entertaining, but also enlightening and reassuring that such great music exists beyond the scope of pop culture. I've listened consistently since 2009 and have not missed an episode since. Great way to discover more (and better) music from someone who knows the culture AND music.

Wonderful compilation of vocals and instrumentals
I always enjoy the Irish and Celtic Music podcast. Whether it's a thematic collection like sea songs or emigration songs or a focus on new artists or instrumentals, the music is great. I often listen while I'm working, and listening to Marc' selections really makes the time fly.
