In this episode: Ministry might have started off playing new wav and synth pop in the 1980's, yet it evolved into one of the most important industrial rock bands of all time. Ministry's frontman Al Jourgensen has been there through it all, and tells it all in his new memoir Ministry: The Lost Gospels According To Al Jourgensen. Jourgensens discusses his, frankly, insane life and about what the future holds for the band.

Then: The Northhampton, Mass. pop punk band Speedy Ortiz performs songs from its debut record Major Arcana, and an early, then still-untitled version of "Everything's Bigger," from the just-released EP Real Hair, in the Soundcheck studio.

And: Shaul Schwarz, director of the gripping new documentary Narco Cultura, talks about exploring two very different sides of the outlaw-fueled culture that has grown up around Mexico’s drug wars.
