The Savage-Turner Rock Express Podcast has been on the air since 2014. It began as a radio show on SunnyRadio out of Sioux Falls, and was listened to by fans from around the world. It shifted to the podcast format in 2016, and has been growing its audience ever since.

The show is hosted by former professional wrestler and reality tv star, “Heavy Metal” Ric Savage, and the guitarist and founding

member of multi-platinum selling artists, Warrant, THE Erik Turner.

The show features guests from the world of music, television, movies, politics, and also Medal of Honor recipients, and the first African-American to pilot a craft in space.
Ric and Erik get down deep with guests to find their greatest inspirations, their greatest failures, how they rose to the tops of their professions, and what they experienced on that journey.
You will hear the inside stories, the stories you can only get from the folks that lived them day in and day out. The real stuff, not the fluff.
