Additionally, Martin has penned approximately 85 books on hard rock, heavy metal, classic rock and record collecting. He is also part of the Pantheon Podcast network, with a show called History in Five Songs with Martin Popoff. 

Back when print was a thing, Martin was Editor-In-Chief of the now retired Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles, Canada’s foremost metal publication for 14 years, and has also contributed to Revolver, Guitar World, Goldmine, Record Collector, bravewords.com, lollipop.com and hardradio.com, with many record label band bios and liner notes to his credit as well. 

Additionally, Martin has been a regular contractor to Banger Films, having worked for two years as researcher on the award-winning documentary Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, on the writing and research team for the 11-episode Metal Evolution and on the ten-episode Rock Icons, both for VH1 Classic.
