This is amazing!
I've loved Metallica since 1986 when I first got into thrash metal. But this podcast has given me a whole new appreciation for them. Metallica is Ryan's favorite band and it's like I'm seeing them through his eyes. My teenage boys love Metallica and they are big fans of this podcast too!
