Show Notes:

Corentin Moutet is amazing with a racquet in his hands, but equally amazing when he exchanges that racquet for a microphone.

The 21-year-old Frenchman joined the Lucky Letcord Podcast to talk about how he dealt with the difficulty of quarantine by diving into his passion for music like he never had before.
