Episode 66(6): Heavy Metal with Daniel Bukszpan
It’s the season of doom, darkness, and things that shred in the night. Get your horns up, because today we’re talking metal. Wyndham and Christian are joined by Daniel Bukszpan, a journalist, music critic, and author of the 2003 classic The Encyclopedia of Heavy Metal. We dive deep into the expansive and occasionally confusing genre, discussing its origins, its highlights, and the spectrum of subgenres, subcultures, and the politics between them.
