About this Episode

Soundchecks are a total waste of time. But the guys at TAHP have a much different viewpoint about it and this time we have Neil Batiancila (RELENT frontman & ENCM Worship Director), chiming in a no limits conversation. This episode is NOT for the easily offended or the faint of will. Definitely our best conversation yet!
