Coming at you from the Proud Highway, I had a change to meet up with Eric Haycraft of Real Fighters Gym / Glory Kickboxing for a great conversation covering his background in martial arts, the genesis of his Real Fighters Gym and his involvement with Glory Kickboxing. This episode was recording in a lo-fi manner, so I apologize for the slight noise for the first few minutes of our talk. ENJOY!!
I welcome back comics creator and bro Josh Bayer. This episode is geared toward those of you who dig comics. Aside from Slayer, we pretty much only talk about comics.
Nightbreed! is the alter-ego of Aleix Martinez and Jaclyn Sheer. They join the podcast to discuss their plans to take over the night.
In this episode I had to opportunity to hang Al and Danny Kavadlo, two NYC-based but globally active fitness visionaries. We touch on many different aspects of functional strength and conditioning training, their published books and how intense physical training can change your life.
I met up with author / esoteric scholar Tom Eisele for an interesting conversation about the occult, Tarot and what may lie beyond the veil. If you would like to get in touch with Tom for an appointment, you can find him at Enchantments 212-288-4394. The shop is located at 424 E 9th Street, New York, NY 10009

I apologize for the lull between episodes, I've been busy kicking off Savage Gold Coffee. A while back, I did a Classic Album Episode with Josh Bayer for Black Flag "In My Head". I said that I'd be doing these on a relatively regular basis; well months later, here's another one.
Jesse Daino and Gabriel Dimartino of join us for the "COFFEE EPISODE". Jesse is one of the founders of RECESS COFFEE in Syracuse, NY and Gabriel is the head roaster. Jesse and I became friends back when my old band Anodyne toured with his band Ed Gein.
Why was I in Syracuse this past weekend? I was in Syracuse to pick up the first roast of SAVAGE GOLD PRIME, the flagship roast for my new SAVAGE GOLD COFFEE COMPANY. This is the manifestation of month of planning and correspondance with Recess.

I had the chance for a friendly chat with my friend, author Laina Dawes before embarking on the West Coast tour with Pelican.
This week, Ryan Begley joins me for a hang out. Ryan is the founder of Shirts and Destroy, a music-related merchandise company with a strong aesthetic identity. He has also launched True Black, a new apparel company emphasizing functionality.
I had the idea to do a few special episodes where Josh Bayer and I discuss "Classic Albums". We're defining classics by what we think are classics, not some paid-by-word music journalist bullshit. Case in point, this episode deals with "In My Head" by Black Flag, a record that most punks hate and was mostly forgotten. This is one of my favorite records.
You can look forward to episodes dedicated to "Cold Lake" by Celtic Frost and "Born Again" by Black Sabbath, just to give you an idea of where I'm at with all of this.
