Rank #1: Davey Havok from AFI

In a very special episode presented by 6131 Records (www.6131records.com), I sit down with the vocalist of AFI, Davey Havok, for an extended chat. We speak directly about theatre, being creative regardless of your circumstances and how he has handled criticism over the years. I have never heard Davey open up this much about various aspects of his life and I couldn't thank him enough for this opportunity.

Rank #3: Chris Hannah from Propagandhi

Podcast cover
Read more

This is a huge episode for me as Propagandhi is one of my favorite bands of all time. Chris and I discussed what it's like having academic papers written about your lyrics, nuance within one's life and being a parent. It got way more introspective than I thought it was going to be, but Chris was very open and ready to talk. He was one of the first people I wanted to speak to for the podcast, and 142 episodes later, we made it happen.

Episode 211 - Jesse Leach has always fascinated me. As the singer of Killswitch Engage I found his lyrics to be positive and uplifting in ways that most metal bands didn’t embrace and I loved it. I hop in the bands tour bus and pick his brain about anxiety, showing your roots and ultimately finding comfort. It’s a very special conversation that I am pleased to bring you.

Episode 215 - Foundation was one of my favorite hardcore bands in recent years, so I was very much looking forward to speaking to Thomas Pearson, the vocalist of said band.

While I am sad the band is no longer, they left a great legacy in their recorded music. Listen and enjoy!

Please to present to you this rad discussion with Issac Hale from Knocked Loose and Inclination.

Episode 209 - It’s Tom Williams day on the pod! I speak to my old friend who plays guitar in the band Stray From the Path about many things including his early work ethic (and still today), why his band is so rooted in speaking about politics and politically charged issues as well as being professional and not coming off like a needy band when asking for help. It’s a really inspiring chat for a band that has been working for a long time to make an impact.

Episode 223 - This is the most unique podcast I have done to date. Patrick Kindlon is the vocalist for Self Defense Family and Drug Church. He’s a man of many talents and was one of my most requested guests on social media and finally, we have him on. We have a wide ranging discussion about internet culture, context and racist music. No stone is unturned in this chat and we hardly address any of the questions I prepared for him, but the conversation was incredible nonetheless.
