David Boles: Human Meme

Welcome to the David Boles: Human Meme podcast! You may subscribe via Apple iTunes, Google Play Music, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, TuneIn, Pocket Casts, Spotify and RSS or your own podcast player.

Bob Dylan betrayed us for a buck. What does an artist owe an audience? Faithfulness? Predictability? The assumption of kindness? Bob Dylan sold his songs for a fortune, and in the process, lost the world. Now let's use his own words against him.
