WXPN’s Dan Reed and The Philadelphia Inquirer‘s Dan DeLuca have teamed up to create Dan and Dan, a new podcast where the two music critics talk about current happenings in the wide world of music. The third episode came out today and it covers a range of topics, like Mumford and Sons’ new electric sound, the upcoming Firefly Music Festival and the Grateful Dead Farewell Concert.
