Canada’s Grimposium, in conjunction with the SOMEONE project, has launched a new series of podcasts that feature conversations and discussions with some of extreme metal’s current icons.
This new four-episode podcast series brings frank discussion and thoughts on many of today’s hot topics in the metal world. Topics include censorship, the re-appropriation of runic symbols, hate, and gender in metal among others.
Quebec’s Vivek Venkatesh and his co-host, Michelle Ayoub engage discussants in a variety of topics and emerge with a series that pushes boundaries and embraces real and honest discourse.
The series is produced by Aaron Lakoff and Kathryn Urbaniak.
Each episode 30 minute episode features original music by Leticia Trandafir.
The first episode is titled Propositions for Cultural Reappropriation and features Jannicke Wiese-Hansen, Kirsti Rosseland, Ivar Peersen (Enslaved) and Kjetil Grutle (Enslaved).
Next is Balancing Free Speech, Critical Thinking and Media Literacy featuring J.R. Hayes (Pig Destroyer), Richard Johnson (Agoraphobic Nosebleed) and Ihsahn (Emperor).
Then there is Social Media: The Good, the Bad and the Unforgivable featuring Neill Jameson (Krieg), Jason Rockman (Slaves on Dope), Ihsahn (Emperor), Richard Johnson (Agoraphobic Nosebleed) and Sean McGuinness (Pissed Jeans).
And finally, Women in Metal: Underdogs or Equals? featuring Kirsti Rosseland, Jannicke Wiese-Hansen and Ivar Peersen (Enslaved).
