Music InterviewsMusic HistoryMusic

In the world of music podcasting, there are basically two categories - podcasts by fans, and podcasts by famed musicians that have reached the pinnacle of success. Somewhere in the middle of that is the Talk Toomey podcast. Hosted by Joshua Toomey, who previously was a member of national recording artists Primer 55, Talk Toomey avoids the pitfalls of fandom and the backslapping glad handing that comes from successful bands shamelessly talking to each other. Instead, you get focused, powerful and real looks into “the inner circle” of being a hard rock/heavy metal band, complete with questions most are too afraid to ask because their experience doesn’t meet or exceed the level needed to ask and relate. Talk Toomey has been regularly hailed as a top show since the onset, being highlighted on sites like Blabbermouth, Brave Words, etc. Talk Toomey is released for music fans free every Thursday!

  • Excellent podcast with great interviews

    Some of the biggest names in rock & metal have been interviewed on Talk Toomey podcast and because host Joshua Toomey is a musician himself, his interviews provide unique and experienced insights into the jungle that is the music business. And if that wasn't enough, his all time favorite band is the band that got me into metal, PANTERA. Oh, and speaking of rock & metal, good on Toomey for ditching that former Toomey (and Ralph Viera before that) coattail rider Ian Slobley. You’re MUCH bette... more
