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!
