The Three Track Podcast is lovingly curated by a music nerd, for music nerds.

Guests pick their three favourite tracks, from niche B-sides to the most ubiquitous chart hits, and discuss every beat in intricate detail, as well as their general love of music.

This a chance for music-loving guests to give their friends a break from endless monologues about the importance of vinyl, and have an outlet to get as in-depth and nerdy as they want with host, comedian and resident music obsessive Gabriel Ebulue.
