Hey my friend, I discovered your podcast a few weeks ago while listening to Animals on Amazon Music. I was never a big Rog fan, but you really opened my eyes to his genius solo work, so keep up the amazing work!!

Hello from Las Vegas bro. I just stumbled upon your podcast on Amazon Music when I was looking for any kind of podcast about Megadeth. Your thoughts and views on all of the albums are so relatable to my own. Good stuff bro! Keep it up!!

Relating music to specific people, a time in life or a life experience is one of it's most most important functions in my opinion. It's apparent you're a good dude and a good father, great storytelling in this podcast, God bless.

about the host

Meet Nick Slayton

Musician. Storyteller. Podcaster.

In 2016, I was co-hosting A Podcast and a Movie with my brother, Chris Slayton, when it occurred to me that I love music far more than movies. After much thought, I decided to produce a solo podcast and named it: A Podcast and a CD.
The first episodes/series dove into Megadeth as they were the first band that I truly embraced in my youth. Almost seven years and 100+ episodes later, I've explored several other artist's catalogs including: Anthrax, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Pantera, Pink Floyd, Roger Waters, and Van Halen.
I truly enjoy sharing my personal stories with you as well as hearing your own. I'm greatly appreciative of your support and the positive feedback that you've shared with me. I look forward to producing more and more episodes that expand across other genres including: Pop, Soundtrack, and Score.
Thanks for listening and make sure to like, follow, and subscribe!
