Epic Footnote Productions presents a series of podcast programs where Matt + Zach get to debate and geek out over their favorite topic: music.
Cone McCaslin of Sum 41, Interview Part 1 - There Goes My Hero
What was Cone McCaslin of Sum 41’s reaction to receiving a voicemail from Joe Strummer of The Clash? What happened while partying with Lars Ulrich after playing Metallica’s “MTV Icon” tribute TV special? What’s it like to share the stage with icons like Iggy Pop and Darryl “DMC” McDaniels of Run DMC? What does the bassist remember most about recreating the video for “Walk This Way” with Ja Rule and Nelly for the “MTV Icon” tribute to Aerosmith?
Fans Love/Hate for Nu Metal - “Am I Missing Something?”
It’s hard to find another genre of music as polarizing as Nu Metal. One minute bands like Korn and Limp Bizkit dominated mainstream pop culture, then the next any band even subtly associated with downtuned guitars, baggy pants, rap-growling versus and bleached frosted tips were chastised and avoided like the plague. But what led to such disdain, and what’s to account for nu metal’s sudden resurgence in popularity?
Outkast, “Stankonia” - 2 Minutes to Review
20 years ago, Outkast released their fourth album “Stankonia.” With massive hits like “Ms. Jackson”, “So Fresh So Clean” and “B.O.B.”, this album solidified Andre 3000 and Big Boi’s status as one of the most unique and impactful duos in hip hop… but how has it aged after all these years?
Music Videos that Defined MTV’s Total Request Live - “If You Have to Pick 3 …”
In the late 90s/early 2000s, MTV’s “Total Request Live” defined what was popular in music and briefly transformed NYC’s Time Square into the capital of teen culture. So which three music videos best captured what the Carson Daly hosted countdown show was all about?
Deftones, “Ohms” - 2 Minutes to Review
Deftones are one of the most critically lauded bands in alt metal and hard rock. But does Chino Moreno and the band’s ninth studio album “Ohms” live up to their highly acclaimed legacy?
Corey Glover of Living Colour, Interview Part 2 - Tell The Truth (And A Lie)
How often does Corey Glover get mistaken for Danny Glover’s son? What happened when the Living Colour frontman fell off the stage while opening for The Rolling Stones on the “Steel Wheels” tour? Has being a beloved rock star gotten him out of trouble with the police? Where does Corey rank performing in “Jesus Christ Superstar” among his career highlights?

If You’re A Music Geek Like I Am...
...then give these guys a listen! The shows are fun, engaging, and as a listener you feel like you’re a part of the conversation, not being lectured too. I personally dig the “2 Minute Review” competition segments, as that offers a refreshing spin on album reviews, and you’re getting two points of view at once! Hope to do a crossover episode with you guys one day!
Love the debate
I have to say, this is great to hear two different takes on albums (creating the area for debate, ultimately bringing it together into a cohesive list)... Very informative, and I’ve come away learning stuff that I never knew before...keep up the great work.
