The "Take It Personal" Podcast was launched as the Golden Era and boom-bap-focused podcast to beat all Podcasts.

Co-hosts Jason Gloss, DJ 360, Kevlar, A-Aron and Roger The Announcer take you on a sonic voyage from past to present and back again!... Show More

Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, overdose, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Tay K-47, Tupac Shakur, Mayhem, Amy Winehouse and many more. Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music then get ready to love this podcast.
