Feckin' Metal Ep25. ArcSabbath Episode 0.75

In the final teaser episode for the Black Sabbath arc #ArcSabbath, you'll meet the familiar, yet controversial, Uncle Steve, and Joe Siegler, who is new to Feckin' Metal, but has greater insight into Black Sabbath than anyone on the planet! Steve teases an opinion on Tony Iommi vs. Randy Rhoads, while Joe tells stories that only someone with such strong ties to the Sabbath camp could! Things are about to get interesting...

Feckin' Metal Ep24. ArcSabbath Episode 0.5

Finally, the Black Sabbath arc is here. Sort of. This week, I tell my own Black Sabbath story and introduce some of the characters you'll be meeting over the next few weeks. In this episode, you'll hear from Philipp, Ry, Melissa, and Alejandra, who are all Black Sabbath fans, but with very different backgrounds! Over the next few weeks, they'll be sharing their experiences of the band, through a series of interviews I've conducted over the last several weeks! It's heavy riffs and zany characters from here on out, in #ArcSabbath!

Feckin' Football Ep11. Goodbye for now

I'm taking an open-ended break from Feckin' Football for a number of reasons (e.g. not sure if I'm adding value) and this episode is just a quick check-in to explain myself. Thank you to everyone who listened and also to the excellent guests. I'll be back on other podcasts or even this one (who knows!) - until then, cheers!

Feckin' Metal Ep21. FECK Off And Die!

This week, I catch up with some heavy metal newz (z for you 2000s kidz, when "z" made everything 10% cooler), then, in anticipation for my Black Sabbath arc, I play a couple of clips of Black Sabbath deep cuts, followed by some 90s Motorhead. I finish off with some NWOTHM favourites, but you'll have to listen to find out what they are!
