There’s an interesting new bluegrass podcast called The Breakdown described as “Fiddler Patrick McGonigle and music journalist Emma John uncover bluegrass music one iconic record at a time in The Breakdown, a new limited series from The Bluegrass Situation.”

The latest edition looks at the Flatt & Scruggs Carnegie Hall concert recording.

I've really been enjoying this podcast. I've listened to all the episodes so far, and it's provided some awesome insight. The episode on Skaggs and Whitley was particularly poignant.

There was a moment that caused a cringe during the John Hartford episode, when they were discussing Tear Down the Grand Ole Opry, but overall, I find the discussion enlightening and well-researched.
