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,
