PBP025: Cigarette Smoke and Whiskey Colored Moonlight

Poison Boy heard the call and put together a special podcast to make up for a couple of weeks of slacking off. Safety Ranger Sarah joins us to explore the fascinating legacy of drug and alcohol use in jazz music. Join us for a far-ranging conversation that explores the nooks and crannies of genius and madness. Then we catch up on 2 weeks of This Week that focuses on, among other things, the Lincoln Assassination, the opening of the 1st McDonalds, nitroglycerin explosions in San Francisco and the discovery of LSD, Timothy Leary in space, Diamond David Lee Roth gets busted in NYC, the shot heard ‘round the world’, Marion Barry, chemical warfare in WWI, the world famous Ramones and a whole lot more. What are you waiting for?
