Opethian Transitions

In this episode we come up with ideas on how to be better at social media, review some rad music, and have a long-overdue discussion about Opeth with fan and friend Sideshow Bob.  Pretty productive show, right?!

You may also notice a review that seems out of place.  Why did we do it? Go to THIS PAGE to find out how you can help this podcast contribute to Crew Nation and make us review whatever you want.

And remember – Be safe. Stay healthy. Stay Metal.
