"It’s also a bit difficult for me to figure out what — outside of that general description — the podcast is trying to accomplish. But maybe that broadness is intentional. I mean, look at my own podcast and how broad my concept is. If you like music journalism, it’s definitely worth a listen — but more in a “dip your toes in and sample what interests you” more than “inhale the whole series”."

Brendan Mattox - PodcastReview.org - Sep 5, 2019

"It might yet be impossible to write about music without always returning to the forces outside of it that shape its production. Nevertheless, as a social history of marginalization at a particular moment in music history, Lost Notes is an unqualified success. You really ought to listen to it."
