Joe is Everything

I have listened to lots of podcasts over the last decade, but nothing compares to this. I am a musician, but not a drummer. I dont know who most of his guests are really. Nevertheless, the musical depth and emotional intelligence that Joe Wong demonstrates in these incredible conversations makes every episode fascinating and enlightening. I anxiously await every new show and my only complaint is that episodes don’t come out often enough. Maybe twice a week, Joe?

Good interview questions

Good conversation and questions. Not sure why the interviewer felt the need to include broad political insults.

Deep, ambrosial

Joe delicately enchants talented musical geniuses into a psychological safe-zone treehouse where honest discussions unfold about craft, origin, and technique. I appreciate how well Joe can balance conversations between a celebration of uniqueness and nostalgia of common cultural archetypes.

Beautiful

Great podcast! Even when you don’t know much about the interviewee the quality of conversation is excellent! Ray Barbee interview could’ve been twice as long afaic, and the Ian Mackaye one is excellent!

My new favorite music based podcast

I don't normally go for interview style podcasts, and I don't know that I necessarily would have been drawn to a "drummer only" (it's not that exclusive per se) podcast, but Joe's style of interviewing is so piercingly direct that amazing and moving conversations happen about music. It's really a wonderful podcast with a deep catalogue to dig into. Trust me, you don't even have to know of the band/musician being interviewed, there is something wonderfully intuitive and real about how these interviews unfold.

Can't not listen

Thank you for bringing out the stories of my fave drummers, and intro-ing me to guys (and gals) I've never heard of. Every episode is a full listen. No skips!

The best drummer-centric podcast there is.

Joe Wong interviews not only the well-known drummers we've all heard, but also the unsung heros of underground rock drumming. He dives deep, beyond the instrument and into the motivations behind each player. This is the most thorough and enjoyable podcast about drummers. Keep on rockin', Joe!

Love the Trap Set!!

I’ve been listening to the Trap Set for about a year now. Started by listening to some of the bigger name drummer interviews and now listen to any of the drummers. It’s more about life than drums but as a drummer I find it very insightful. Nobody ever talks to the drummer!! I also feel this pod has helped my drumming by bringing me closer to the overall spirit of drummers.

Good questions

I love the musical genre diversity of the drummers-this podcast interests both my husband and me. And I love the hard questions even if it sometimes seems to get awkward for a hot minute.
