Bibliodiscoteque presents: Episode 41 – Hellfire by Nick Tosches


This month Erik Karl Son tackles Nick Tosches’ Hellfire. Its a bold tale of Jerry Lee Lewis and never pulls a punch.

When he noticed that Erin from Down to the Crossroads was reading the same book, he knew he had to get her to help host this episode.

If you don’t know DttC, its best described as, “A monthly segment on the 9sense podcast. Down to the Crossroads, where Faustian bargains are made, spirits are consumed, blues are discussed, and the Devil gets his due.”

Erin is the go-to person for blues platters and dangerous tunes and has hand-picked an impressive selection that makes this one of the best episodes he’s ever posted.


So enjoy and rage well,

About Josh Latta

Mr Josh Latta was born in 1853 to a family of tamed Pleistocenes. he was raised as a small child, entering into adulthood on the eve of his 7th birthday as was the tradition of the day. in 1867 he undertook a course in multi-reptile wrestling ending his career as 'croc-tussler' after an unfortunate shallow-river related accident cut short the life of a young crocodile. moving to rural Sheboigan in the fall of 1872, he made a good living raising fancy roosters and painting murals across the town depicting the various lascivious secrets of the townsfolk. driven out of town in the spring of 1873 he found his way to Utah where he was Flaneur in Residence at the Foundation of Gentlemen and Cultured Guinea Pigs (now the Foundation of Water Fowl and Cultured Guinea Pigs) until a scandal involving twin milkmaids and a churn of cream called for his resignation. Latta entered into the history books in 1899 for his lifesize construction of Monument Valley in matches.
