Metal Hammer of Doom: Unleash the Archers: Apex Review
About Metal Hammer of Doom
Mark Radulich, Robert Cooper and former superfan turned host Jesse Starcher review the latest metal, industrial and southern rock albums. Each show focuses on one new release each week. We listen to a portion of every track on the album and then give our ratings. Hilarity normally ensues.
Podcasts are one of the greatest mediums ever. 10 years ago Jesse found himself driving back and forth to work with over an hour of travel time. Talk radio became something that he enjoyed and helped kill time during the commute. The problem was NPR never stayed completely interesting and his only other options were the ESPN network and the local channel that hosted religious programming. Always the same show… at the same time. It was pretty limited. About three years ago he discovered Podcasts and it changed how he spent much of his time. It opened up options to great niche content that he never even knew was available. After that, he got his first podcast gig on the From the Cheap Seats sports podcast with Jayson Teasley and became a co-host shortly after that.
His real passion, however, was comics. He managed to talk Mark Radulich into letting him do the network’s premier comic book podcast Source Material. This would give him a platform to chat with friends about one of his favorite hobbies. A tremendous opportunity. Also, recently Jesse has worked his way into becoming the third co-host, alongside Mark Radulich and Robert Cooper, of the Metal Hammer of Doom podcast. He loves music and a podcast about heavy-metal right up his alley.
