Yo!! It has been a great year for Talking Metal and you can expect 2007 to be even better. In November we received over 2.4 million hits to talkingmetal.com and striglsmusicnews.com (which are the same site)

Many of our podcast MP3s are actually stored on captaint.com and they are getting downloaded like crazy!!! So far, our Rob Halford episode has already clocked in with over 4500 downloads!!! We have been receiving mentions in major magazines and newspapers such as Revolver and the Washington Post!

In 2007 will be starting a major sponsorship with a really big awesome company. It also looks like we will be teaming up once again with VH1.com for more Talking Metal video podcasts on the V-Spot.

Some of my favorite podcasts – The Rock N Roll Geek show and the Mediocre show have recently done some pretty cool video podcasts and Talking Metal hope to get some to you too in the 1st half of 2007. <check out the “311 concert” Mediocre show podcast, it is funny as shit. 311 suck ass>

Support podcasts and support the sponsors of podcasts. Downloadable media is giving you the option to control the entertainment world. It is an awesome time to be alive.
