Apologies for the break. Life once again got in the way of the podcast, but this new episode is a fantastic guest DJ set from Jordan Smith of Diarrhea Planet. We interviewed him for the Runout, where we did a kind of oral history of the Nashville sextet. You'll be able to read that later this week at The Runout, but in the meantime, let's go take a listen to what Jordan has to play for us.

This episode once again features a special guest DJ, and strangely, this one also features a Tony. In this case, however, it's Tony Foresta, frontman for the thrash-metal punks Municipal Waste, as well as hardcore revivalists Iron Reagan. I did an interview with him for the Runout which will run later this week, but while I had Foresta on the line, I asked him about a few of his favorite songs. It's a pretty cool mix. Iron Reagan is currently on-tour with Napalm Death, Voivod, Black Crown Initiate, and Exhumed. Those dates run through February 28, and you can find more information at Iron Reagan's Facebook page.
