"A weekly series, The Checkout is first broadcast on Newark, N.J.’s public jazz station WBGO 88.3 FM. Host Joshua Jackson is a veteran of jazz radio and each hourlong episode features some combination of music, interviews, reviews and performances. For those of you familiar with the Chicago-based rock/pop podcast Sound Opinions, the format of this show is quite similar, but obviously with a jazz focus. The Checkout had the highest production value of all the podcasts I reviewed, and will definitely be part of my subscription list. "
