Like Mark Maron for Metal

In the same way Mark Maron gets his guests to open up, go deep, and talk about their art, Andrew gets his guests to go deep, open up, and really talk about why they are drawn to heavy music. The episode with Laura from Ails/Ludicra was so powerful, and all of the episodes have been great. It is a very intimate podcast, and he asks great questions and gets great answers. It is to his credit that he never feels like he is name-dropping or trying to seem cool or OG - his geniuine love and appreciation of heavy music shines through.

Killer!
