Episode 1

My good friend Aaron Staebell and I started a music podcast. We thought really hard about the name and decided to call it the Aaron and Ivan Podcast. Listen and subscribe on iTunes.

We don’t know what we are doing so it’s hilarious. Background music at random times, bad editing, funny stories, but also good info about percussion and music. It’s probably very similar to having coffee or drinks with us.
