Holy crap! @conanneutron interviewing Stu Spasm on @ProtonicPod is fucking great. I used to own Plays the Devils Music on vinyl in the '90s. Just awesome.

Also, this makes me wonder how hard it would be to interview Doc Corbin Dart, for some reason.

Our sister podcast @ProtonicPod is 30 subs away from 1,000 on YouTube! I'm sure @conanneutron would be super-appreciative if we got Protonic to 1,000 subs!

Protonic is not a "youtube show", but it is a show on youtube (as well as other platforms) as of a year and a half ago. The amount of subscribers has increased
recently. Currently 33 away from 1K. If you don't sub & have an account, please consider?

New episode of Protonic Reversal tomorrow. Thursday 8e/7c/6m/5p. STU SPASM of Lubricated Goat, the Art Gray Noizz Quintent, and Crunt. Tune in on youtube, twitch, and of course, good ol' Radio NOPE dot com.
