Mixtape of Life is a Podcast by Canaan and Ryan. In every episode we each pick 10 tracks that we think you need to hear. We’ll explore the power of music, why music is amazing, and how its helped to shape our lives and the world around us.
Grant Evelyn on the show again! In this episode we talk about the best versions of the same 5 Christmas songs. We have a lot of fun, and discuss all the best song for the season, and our favorite versions of those songs.

New Season, New Co- Host, New EVERYTHING! Canaan joins the show as the new co-host and we discuss all things Broadway! Put on your dance shoes, and drink that vocal tea to sing along to our favorite songs from Broadway.
HUGE DISCLAIMER!!!!!!!! We are not Country experts!! While we did have a lot of fun making this episode we are clearly not the authority on all things country. Hopefully there are a few picks in here that don't make you cringe.
One of the greatest musical events in US history. How can we not do an episode with a Woodstock theme. We've got a special guest this week that sheds light on what Woodstock was really about and how it came together. We do our best to talk about the relevant social issues of today and share some great music. Hope you enjoy.
Everyone needs a mulligan once in a while. In our case we needed 10. 10 chances to fix some of our passed episodes. Here are some songs that we think should have been played in other episodes but we missed. Hopefully we found redemption in a few of these new picks. Enjoy!!
One moment of glory was all these artist could seem to find but we are sure glad they came up with these hits. Thanks to the user who submitted idea. It was a fun and somewhat silly list to put together. Hope you enjoy!!
As per normal Grant's list doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Ryan try to explain to Grant the joys of living at a slower pace. Grant can't keep from running around with his hair on fire. So yeah, pretty normal show.
We got a guest!!!!!!! And not just any guest. Grant's wife Brittani makes guest appearance as we discuss instrumental music from all over the world. We explores a lot of different styles of music including jazz and some heavy mellow.
Who's ready for some 90's jams? Our first user submission list was a lot of fun. Thanks Matt for the idea and the great song choices. Ryan tries to pretend like he is too young for 90's music and Grant relives the glory days. Enjoy!!!
This list is all about songs that are new to us. Some are new artists and others are artists we love but haven't heard these tracks. It was a little extra work this week but hopefully we can introduce you to some new music that we think is great. Thanks for listening.
Special guest Amber joins us on the show today. We have a great time discussing Female vocalists from different generations and genres. We introduce a few new artists and pay our respects to some of the greatest female vocalists in our lives!!
Not to be outdone by Grant, Ryan comes up with a terrible list idea!!!!! Guilty pleasures is exactly what it sounds like. They talk about songs that they are embarrassed that they actually have in their libraries. Ryan spends most of the episode hiding behind his mic!! It's all about "Hot Garbage" today.
In this episode Grant and Ryan pick their best of the best in Guitar, Bass, Drums, Vocal and 2 wildcard categories. Each of them will plead their case as to why these songs made their lists. In one of the most diverse lists to date they cover everything from classic rock, to jazz, to classical.
