Our guest this week rounds out the Big Four of metal interviews for the podcast! Kirk Hammett of the mighty Metallica gives us some time to talk about his new Ghoul Screamer guitar pedal, how he keeps his work and life in balance, how he manages his busy schedule, how he views happiness and success — both personally and within the band — and why he decided to start a company, KHDK, to make boutique guitar pedals.

Chuck and Godless also argue about the best Metallica songs while trying to figure out which one to play on this episode, and we discuss the Florida police officer who was fired for his singalong at a Vital Remains concert. In an effort to embrace his community the Chief of Police for Sanford, Florida got rid of an officer who embraced part of that very community. Was he correct? We talk, you decide!
