We're back! This week we dip back into our "Explore the Big Four" series with Anthrax's standout album, Among the Living. Ethan is a life long Anthrax fan and Clint had literally never heard any of these songs before. They contextualize the record in 1986 thrash metal and burn the entire thing down with Grammy award winning, incisive commentary. Also covered in this episode:

  • Clint's embarrassing encounter with songwriting genius Desmond Child
  • what bands Clint and Ethan would be in from the 70's
  • nosy neighbors
  • Metallica at Slane Castle
  • Conan O'Brien
  • Dogtown/Metallica Skateboards
  • Kirk Hammett's new horror exhibit
  • Shockingly Wicked, Evil and Vile
  • Hanging with Joe and Lzzy from Halestorm
  • A youtube comment calling Clint's voice an "effete ghost"
  • The future of the podcast beyond Metallica
  • what sequence should you listen to Metallica records in?
  • 70's cinema
  • your butt!
