This social music podcast platform lets fans discuss music, but does away with reviews and ratings. Instead of elevating the opinion of critics, startup Music Impacts tries to bring fans into the discussion and offer a more interactive experience. Fans and artists alike can share their memories and the way music affected them, rather than getting overly technical with it. So far just one music podcast is up: 'In Memoriam: What is Your Favorite David Bowie Song?'

Featuring "a growing collection of stories from music fans around the world," the music podcast episodes consist of a conversation between the host and a special guest who discuss the impact music has on their lives. The last question is turned over to listeners to share their stories.
