As a bonus I've also got an interview with Emmy from RedHook out of Sydney [Australia]. These...

Hell yeah fukkas! It's Episode #2 of The Manic Metal Show with two insane bands on the line. Sólstafir [Iceland] AND Dragonland [Sweden]!!!
Icelandic rock legends Sólstafir are currently on tour in Australia with Enslaved, & I caught up with Addi Tryggvason [Guitar/Vocals] just before he boarded the plane to Australia. I was at their show in Perth a couple of nights back and holy $hit are they amazing. One of those bands you truly have to check out yourself as no description will do it...
Hailz Headbangers!!! Get your neck warmed up because the godfather of thrash himself is on the line! That's right, it's Scott Ian from Anthrax, S.O.D and The Damned Things! We talk all about his upcoming "One Man Riot: Spoken Word Tour" in Australia, stand up comedy, heavy metal, Scott shares some crazy stories and I tell him about a guy from my home town in regional Queensland who claimed to be in a band with him.... Was that true? I'll let Scott tell you.
You also get not one dose, but...
It's Episode #36 with Queensland comedian Peter James! Pete was a National Finalist in the Class Clowns Competition a few years back [aka RAW Comedy for High Schoolers] & runs Laughing Heart Comedy based out of The Reef Casino in Cairns. We caught up when I was in Cairns recently & got stuck into the important issues.
Such as a lady named Apple who feeds her baby donated breast milk. No, you didn't misread that & that's just a hint of her insanity. Homemade baby wipes? We talk premium...
All aboard with the Croatian Sensation himself: Adrian Alaberg [Comedian]. Adrian has a tonne of hilarious sketches on YouTube, he's a regular guest on Channel 9 & he's an awesome stand up comic.
We caught up in a Perth food court for an ADD style podcast: Croatia almost won the world cup: hear two people who know nothing about soccer discuss this achievement! We have a running dish-cart commentary throughout the episode [listen to find out what the f#ck that means]. Given Adrian's...

We get into a bunch of sh#t: MMA,...
Welcome to Episode #33 with your favourite Bipolar Rock N Rolla Douglas Harvey. Another solo show where I delve deep into the "Dos and Don'ts" of surviving your stay in the nut house and you'll meet a couple who share their love of the Lord via gang-bangs. I guessing filling holes heals souls? Shockingly, their rationale is pretty weak [or should I say flacid?].
How do you get better, while surrounded by crackheads?
If you find magic mus [...]
[Episode #32] This time it's a Solo Douglas Expedition into news and current world events. In saying that, all but one of the world events are occurring in Western Australia [and they're all f*cking ridiculous].
I worry about the important issues so I felt it was time to address them. I think I found my favourite guy ever. Old Kevvy from Mandurah has was arrested for threatening police: with his big old schlong. We have a serial park sh*tter terrorising the parkland in Cockburn [lolol they...
It's E#31 & "The Cuddle Pimp" Bruno Oliveira is back in the house. One of the funniest, most uncompromising guys in the game.
We get an introduction to pole dancing for Jesus, go deep into sociopaths, pathological liars and religion. I remember the time I was an accessory to the crime of a "drive-by suplex". Fun for the whole family [Except Mum, Nan, Grandad, the Kids and your weird Uncle]
It has been a home-run every time Bruno's been on the show & this one is no exception.
And now for something completely different it's Episode #30: Douglas vs Douglas.
Mental health is an issue that's stigmatised & minimalised, yet every one us will be effected by it directly or indirectly at some stage. I would go as far as saying it's the most important facet of life. What's the point in being physically healthy if you have a gun in your mouth?
I'm a person who is incredibly open about mental health issues & I am this way because there is value in honesty. There is value...
Hello friends! It's Episode#29 with one of my oldest friends: Tim Price. Pricey runs The Faction Radio [where you can hear me] as well as Collision Course PR.

Hello friends! For episode #28 I'm joined by "2018 Woman Of The Year" [as voted by me], my fiancee & much better half: TEESH! Ever wondered about growing up on a farm? Did you realise it includes eating your pets? That's not a typo.... Imagine eating MULTIPLE pets that you've hand raised & bonded with. The dog ran away and it was too much of a pain in the ar$e to get him from the pound so he stayed there. The pet pig Wilbur had a rough ending too [don't want to spoil it]. Jesus Tap Dancing...
