In Part 2 of last week’s episode where Doc interviewed Ex Man listeners, the roles are reversed and Doc answers questions from Ceraphym guitarist, Thomas Crawford, and criminal defense attorney, Matt Neufeld.
This episode features the song “Ain’t Good For Me” by Frost Koffin.
In a very unique episode of the Ex-Man, Doc speaks with two listeners and fans of the podcast. First, Doc converses with Matt Neufeld, a defense attorney from Texas, about why he likes the Ex-Man podcast, how he got into law, and delve into the complexities of the modern criminal justice system. They also discuss the NBA and the San Antonio Spurs in the show outro.
In the 2nd half of the show, Doc speaks with Thomas Crawford, guitarist of songwriter of the band Ceraphym. They discuss his evolution of trying to build a band while also maintaining a demanding career and moving cross country, the advantage of modern technology like Superior Drummer in songwriting with band members that aren’t local, and what the challenges of being an independent artist in the ever-changing heavy music world entail.
This episode features the song “Mouthpeace” by Ceraphym.
Doc welcomes former Dillinger Escape Plan founder and guitarist Ben Weinman and they talk about how he got the gig playing with Suicidal Tendencies, what Suicidal meant to him growing up, how the scene Dillinger came up in influenced his DIY sensibility, the physicality of Dillinger’s live show taking it’s toll on his body and eventually winding down the band, and Ben interviews Doc a bit about God Forbid’s work ethic back in the day, and what it has been like to move to LA and start over again with a new band.
This episode features the songs “New Disguise” by Haal and “Adapt or Die” by Giraffe Tongue Orchestra.
