    Brett Monro and Crista Honey: Metal Nerds, Inc

    Staci's guests are Brett Monro and Crista Honey. Their company is Metal Nerds Inc, and they have launched a project called the Kings of the Strip Legacy Project (Tales from the Strip), where they partner with bands to create graphic anthologies for them that they can then sell to fans via mail-order and on their merch tables, which is just brilliant. These comics are a cool representation of the band from start to finish - the colors, graphics, personality, likenesses, stories, content, and so on. Brett and Crista also share stories about podcasting, Alice Cooper, The Beach Boys, and more.
