As we're just days away from this year’s installment of Record Store Day, we decided to dedicate the roundtable discussion on the latest episode of our official podcast, Diffuser Radio, to the vinyl holiday. Following that conversation, we’re thrilled to share our recent interview with the lovely Janet Devlin, an absolutely amazing singer-songwriter from Ireland. You can stream and download Episode 004 below.

This episode’s roundtable is comprised of columnists Chris Kissel, James Stafford and Jeff Giles, and it examines the behemoth that is Record Store Day. Has it gotten too big? Does it really benefit fans and stores? Why does our Editor-in-Chief Chuck Armstrong love the holiday so much? We dive into it all during the discussion.

As for our sit-down with Devlin, she opens up about the crowdfunding process for her latest release, Running With Scissors, what it’s like coming to New York City and more (we don't want to spoil it for you!).
