The Song Exploder podcast is one of the best music podcasts around (along with the Culture Creature podcast, of course). The show features interviews with artists who break down the writing process of a specific song. One memorable episode included Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo dissecting his totally bizarre writing tricks.

Today, the show landed a big guest: Metallica. James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich stopped by Song Exploder to break down the creative process behind ‘Moth Into Flame’ from last year’s Hardwired… to Self-Destruct. The show is expertly produced and edited; you’ll hear specific song segments the guys discuss in each part of the interview. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the metal giants’ creative process; listen here:
