200 – Marx In The Streets, Foucault In The Sheets

Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast! It’s finally here! The 200th episode! And of course we decide to do something especially dumb with it. We’ve chosen 64 philosophers, and we do a bracket to determine who is the best of them. Bullshit philosophy time to the max! But for real. But not really. Enjoy!

199 – Aest-Ethics

Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast! Are we going to run out of topics to talk about when there’s no new? Maybe, but that won’t stop us! We can just do random philosophy instead! I mean, there’s Mike Shinoda doing some Linkin Park related stuff on Twitch, Insomnium announcing a stream, War From a Harlot’s Mouth remastering Transmetropolitan, and that new Sweven release… So I guess there really isn’t that much. But there’s a new Tantacrul video, and we discuss the intersection of music, programming, design and philosophy. Then, cool people time with Upload, Oxygen Not Included, and more Warhammer. Enjoy!

197 – Paolo Gregoletto of Trivium

Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast! This I got the opportunity to talk to Paolo Gregoletto, bass player for Trivium. I’m sure fans of the cast can appreciate how big a deal this is for me, and excuse my initial nervousness. We talk about how the pandemic has affected his life as a musician and the album release cycle, the writing and recording process, how their creativity is transformed into a recording, and what they are planning on doing for the release of the album throughout this situation. What The Dead Men Say is awesome, and it comes out this Friday! Enjoy!
