For the first time in it’s history, Sound Opinions is now an independent production. To mark the occasion Jim and Greg share songs about new starts that are speaking to them right now.
Margo Price has spent years living and working as a musician in Nashville, but her third studio album, That’s How Rumors Get Started, makes it clear she can’t be confined to any one genre. Jim and Greg agree this is a great album.
Juice WRLD was at the height of fame when he tragically died late last year just after turning 21. Legends Never Die is his third album and the most commercially successful posthumous release in many years. Jim and Greg are mixed on it’s artistic success.

For more than 15 years, Sound Opinions was a production of WBEZ, Chicago's public radio station. Now that the show is independent, we're inviting you to join the band and lend a hand! We need your support more than ever because now we have to do all the behind-the-scenes work that WBEZ handled before (like buying insurance and paying for podcast hosting, ugh). Plus, we have some exciting ideas we'd like to try now that there's no one to tell us no!
