Best Metallica podcast out there

I really enjoy how much these dudes put time in their own personal lives to provide not only informative content on the Mighty Metallica but also know how to crack jokes. The metal police bit is one of my favorites. It’s also interesting hearing about what their lives our like as touring musicians. Overall these guys know how to have a good time and put on an awesome podcast to listen to. 🤘🏽
