We’re back to normal podcasts now, and this week Hugh is joined by Tom Doyle to talk about just what it is behind controversial – but not necessarily “metal” – news stories that gets metal musicians, the metal media, and metal fans so worked up. Come listen to Tom Doyle’s well thought out points, and marvel at the arrogance and irony of Hugh decrying sensationalist media using unrelated news stories to sell copies/get site hits, when we’re pretty much doing exactly that with this podcast.
Here’s the links to various things we talked about in the podcast, if you want to get some context:
- The blog article about the cover of Rolling Stone that we refer to in the episode.
- David Draiman’s argument agains Rolling Stone
- Jamey Jasta’s initial tweet about Rolling Stone
- The Reuters newswire about Varg Vikernes’ recent arrest, because AP’s is behind a paywall
