After a 2 month hiatus (blame lockdown and all the tiers), the boys are back! The episode begins with a look back on the year, with this being the final episode of 2020. In January, no one could of guessed or imagined what the year would have had in store for everyone, Toren & Ray begin by discussing the changes over the year and how although it's been tough, there were a lot of good things to take from it. Has anyone noticed that music output and how artists create has changed in 2020? With there being no shows and ways for artists to gauge how the fans are receiving their projects in real time, apart from social media, has this allowed for artists to be more experimental and produce more reflective music, or have some artists become too experimental? Finally, Toren, Sillah & Ray take a look at setting goals for the coming year and how doing so this year has helped to track progress and ultimately see the brighter side of what has been a tricky year.
