Sound Only

Intense. That is the very first thought I had while listening to this podcast.

On Shuffle is hosted by Micah Peters, staff writer of The Ringer and the producer of the show. It’s a hip and no-holds-barred music podcast that discusses various topics in the music scenes.

I would like to start with Micah Peter’s voice – attention-grabbing. Am I the only one who thinks that his voice sounds like Mario Lopez? It’s pretty cool actually – not too pitchy nor deep – just enough to make you listen.

Micah discusses substantial topics under the roof of the music industry. He talks about stuff that people have in mind but are too shy to ask.

The episode entitled “How a Song Becomes a Viral Hit” is a cool and informative episode which educates the listener on the pattern and trends that make a song go viral.

Micah also gives honest and straightforward opinions. He has views that root from a unique perspective. Just like how he pronounced his opinion against Post Malone’s rise to stardom. It’s quite shocking how he voices his views so boldly towards a “star” that can fire back at him.

And the podcast is not a one-way show. He also invites music personalities to co-host episodes of On Shuffle who honestly provide their perspectives on topics.

I find intense discussion a great element of the show. It brings out the pureness of opinions which is both liberating and engaging.

You can follow Micah Peters on Twitter to get a daily dose of his wit and antics. On Shuffle playlist is available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
