Wirelessin’ Podcast Review
An unconventional musical duo regale us with tales of life on the road.
With nearly 2 million podcasts available worldwide, how do you choose what to listen to? Here at deMars Magazine we aim to find the best content and make sure you hear all about it.
Wirelessin’ is a fortnightly podcast hosted by father-son duo Barry Douglas and Liam Douglas, two well renowned musicians with very different backgrounds: Barry is a classical pianist who has been globally active since the 1980s while Liam is a multi-instrumentalist and primary axe-slinger for up and coming indie rock band Becky and the Keys.
Despite the obvious genre-spanning differences, the two hosts often find common ground while casually conversing about their diverse musical careers. The podcast has a relaxed interview format that drifts into fondly told anecdotes of what it means to live life as a professional musician; be it the ‘lightning bolt’ moment that kicks off a lifelong passion, or where to find the best hotels.
Wirelessin’ comes at the perfect time, it has potential to fill the void that a lot of musicians and music fans have been feeling over the last 12 months. Listening to Liam and Barry recount the tales of their musical past and adventures is in equal measures informative and entertaining, be it how to bounce back from injury or how to react when there is a ghost at the end of your hotel room bed (no, really).
In short, if you are a musician, or a fan of live music, this podcast is for you.
At the time of writing, Wirelessin’ has five episodes available here.
