Travis OsterhausLast updated on Aug 01, 2020
As far as we’re concerned, one of the greatest things to come out of podcasting the past couple of years has been the surge in high-quality podcasts. They help expand your awareness of a variety topics, and there’s no shortage of supreme quality. But one of the things we miss is that time we once spent listening to music has now been cut in half. Music podcasts are a great way to indulge in your love of music. Another great thing about podcasts for music lovers is that they cover all genres and run the gamut of styles. Are you looking for brand new music to bring a little bit of rhythm back into your life? Or perhaps you’re interested in what your favorite musicians are listening to? Or maybe, learning how your favorite band came into existence. The good news is, there’s a podcast for that. It’s just a case of finding the right one to suit you and your mood. That’s why we’ve got the ultimate lists of the best music podcasts and the best episodes of each pod. Granted, we’re a little biased, but you don’t even have to take our word for it. We know it can be tough to find the right kind of podcast to suit your mood. So, we took it to the Repod community to vote and review their favorite shows and episodes.

    This is not a Drake podcast

    Ep 1: Toronto was always a hip-hop city
    "No, this podcast is not about Drake (sort of). Instead this series covers a broader history of the cultural evolution in the Toronto hip hop scene. Really fascinating series. Personally, this made me see Toronto in a whole new light rather than just thinking of it as Drakes hometown. "
