The Essence of Cool is a podcast that connects with musicians, producers, radio presenters, and music enthusiasts to ask the burning question,
"which artists do you call cool, and why?"
Is Kanye cool?
How about Billie Eilish, Iggy Pop, or Lemmy?
If so, what makes them cool?
Of course, everyone has their own definition.
What we think is cool may be vastly different from our guests, which can spark some passionate discussion.
Join us in our ongoing discovery of
The Essence of Cool!
