This is a podcast recorded and produced out of the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT). Is It Metal? is a podcast that is hosted by fellow British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) Radio Arts and Entertainment student Matt McArthur and myself. It is a weekly, 30-minute show where various objects and concepts in this world of ours are discussed to determine whether or not they are indeed metal. They can be anything; people, animals, activities etc. We literally spew out ideas 10 minutes before we do the podcast. This is a lively show with interactions between myself and Matt, with some humorous jokes and expertise on the subject. Matt and I both love heavy metal so this show is an excellent way for us to interact with people who enjoy the same passion as us. Below are episodes of the podcast we have published. Every episode is recorded at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) and edited plus produced by myself. The intro is me playing everything. We have 2 seasons.
