This Double Punch is a free reign adventure. Each episode is themed and chock full of interviews, great music, food, cultural events and chitter chatter, and as opposed to a lot of podcasts, Double Punch hits the streets, recording anywhere where there is access to an outlet. This podcast is for those who have a penchant for the fun, the odd and the best in music. Based out of Toronto and the sister podcast to ''the Culture Vulture'' show on Sound FM 100.3.
