When I interviewed Richard Hoak of Total Fucking Destruction for my last podcast, he encouraged me to get in touch with Doug Brown, the director of the grindcore documentary Slave To The Grind. I've been hearing about the film for years; its trailers and kickstarter page made the social media rounds, generating tons of excitement from grindcore fans around the world. Since it's now available on DVD and for streaming/download, it made sense to reach out to Doug to find out about how this film came about.

I spoke to Doug about his background in the film industry, the genesis of the documentary, and the process of collecting interviews for Slave To The Grind. I also put him on the spot and asked him to settle what the greatest grindcore album of all time is.

My thanks to Doug for speaking to me, and to you for listening.
