No episode this week, have an 80 song playlist instead!

Kat! There’s no new episode on the feed!

I know. I’m sorry. Whether it was Los Angeles or something back here in Canada, I got sick and I have no energy and I can’t talk for more than a few seconds without coughing. You don’t want to hear that, trust me.

What does that mean for the next episode?

Episode 25 will come out in two weeks and until then I made you the modern equivalent of a mixtape as an apology: a playlist on Spotify that contains all the music featured on the podcast (that is on Spotify) and a few extras.

That’s eighty songs put together just for you!

Listen on the web if you have a free account or paid accounts can use also mobile.

Please share and subscribe to the podcast so you can be one of the first to receive episode 25 when it drops. Sorry for the wait, but quality is important to me and I won’t put out a poor podcast just to put something out. Enjoy the music and feel free to leave a comment if you want something added to it or have a recommendation.
