Episode Summary: Without rest or fear The Governor returns for this third episode this week to bring more metal fury! The Governor once again delivers two hot steaming interviews straight into your mouth hole. The mighty Governor speaks to the host of CBC television’s The Hour, George Stroumboulopoulos about how he found metal and his opinions on a few subjects like popular bands and emo. Also featured is an interview with vocalists from this year’s Montreal Assault Tour. The Governor takes on the immature shenanigans of Alex from Despised Icon, Kevin from Ion Dissonance, Elliot from Beneath The Massacre, and Maynard from The Plasmarifle. Can The Governor survive a 4-on-1 assault on his sanity? ...and in one more attempt at shameless pluggery, The Governor will be talking about his upcoming metal/comedy showcase: The Governor’s Bash 3 – Saturday August 23 at The Annex Wreckroom in Toronto featuring Gates of Winter, Talamyus, and The Womb. Plus on “Some Sly Advice” you shall be amazed by the miracle of Sly’s oil... and as always more metal for your headbanging pleasure!

Since 2005, The Governor's Ball: The "Mighty" Metal and Comedy Show, has brought laughter and headbanging fury to the metal community. Beginning in the bowels of the Toronto community radio and led by the enigmatic character simply known as The Governor, this hilariously violent program has attracted a dedicated and somewhat homicidal fanbase who revelled in The Governor's words and the powerful metal he would spin in every episode.

In early 2008 The Governor escaped the oppressive clutches of futuristic game show hosts and even his own clone and headed to cyberspace. The Governor's Ball now the mighty podcast it is today, attracts thousands of listeners with each episode. Each show is a mighty adventure, featuring headbanging metal tracks, words of wisdom from The Governor and his good friend Sly, along with interviews from the biggest metal stars in the world to local acts bursting on to the Canadian scene.

The Governor’s Ball – Your choice for Arnold Schwarzenegger-themed heavy metal comedy programming since 2005.
