Doc Joins Weekly Heavy Metal Talk Show ‘Last Words’ as Co-Host

I am pretty psyched to announce that I will be joining the weekly heavy metal talk show “Last Words” as a regular co-host. “Last Words” is presented by metal news site The Pit and I join fellow co-hosts Jordan Olds (Two Minutes to Late Night) and Katy Irizarry (Season Of Mist / Loudwire).

It’s pretty funny because I was a featured guest on the show just a few weeks ago and we had so much fun, I was offered a regular slot. Basically, we breakdown select heavy albums that are released each week and debate the metal news of the week. I’m definitely looking forward to talking a gang of shit and listening to lots of new music. I can’t complain. Check out clips of my first episode as co-host below.
