Voivod guitarist Daniel “Chewy” Mongrain is our guest this week. We discuss the Canadian perspective on the recent protests inspired by the murder of George Floyd and his country's response to the pandemic, he looks back on Voivod's most recent studio album, The Wake, tells us about how Voivod got invited to play the Montreal International Jazz Festival, why spontaneous composition is difficult for a metal band, Voivod’s experience doing the live-streamed Isolation Festival, and an update on the band's next album.

Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia discuss the guy that got Pete into heavy metal at the age of nine years old, how he knocked out a guy by sucker punching him, and the antics of Pete as a high school basketball player who would pull pranks on his coach.

Songs: Voivod - “The End of Dormancy (Metal Section)," Valkyrie - “Feeling So Low”
