ALLOY Podcast is what we consider to be a heavy metal variety show. We focus mainly on heavy metal, but interlace some stand-up comedy. Hosts Matt and Ben want to rock your face and make you laugh. This show is dedicated to all things we think are metal. So we might have comic book writer's on the show, we might have authors on the show and we might have movie creators or actors on the show. "We want everyone that listens to our show to get some great metal, and have a good time."

ALLOY makes sure pack plenty of metal into the show with interviews from great bands. You don't think a band is metal? We don't care. We don't put up with metal elitism. Metal is Metal. Don't say it's not metal because you don't like it, just say you don't like it. What are you going to hear on the ALLOY Podcast? Have a look at our segments.
