Signals From Mars – December 17, 2021 – 2021 Year In Review

Signals From Mars December 17, 2021 The Year In Review 2021


Year-end show with Patrons discussing our favorite albums of the year.

During this episode of the Signals From Mars Livestream, I welcome back my Patrons to discuss their favorite albums of the year.

The Patrons submitted their top ten list, and based on the points assigned to each album, they were ranked on an overall list. If an album was selected number one, it received ten points. Number two received nine points, and so on till reaching number ten which was assigned one point.

All in all, 78 albums made the complete list. I recapped albums 78 through 26 during the Signals From Mars Fireside Friday show.

When this episode starts, I pick up with number 25 and go all the way down to number 1. If you want to get involved in these Patron discussions, all you need to do is go here and become a Patron. You can do so for as little as $2 a month.

This episode of the Signals From Mars was originally recorded on December 17th, 2021. The audio version of this episode is Mars Attacks Podcast 255. You can find the audio version here.

Signals From Mars Trivia Tuesday on Twitch is a new show where, as you might suspect, I throw out a bunch of hard rock and metal trivia questions to the audience.

Last week’s game came down to the very last question, with the winner taking away a $5 discount from the Mars Attacks Podcast Merch store. Will tonight bring a new champ?

Not only do you need to know the correct answer, but you also need to be the quickest to answer correctly. The faster you answer, the more points you obtain. But answer wrong, and you’ll lose points.

What to join in on the action, or watch and hang out in the chat? Go here to do so.
